Emma Smith

General Manager

Hi, my name is Emma and I am the General Manager here at Stamford Bridge. Welcome to our website! I have been working for Barchester since 2015. I qualified as a general nurse in 2004, and have worked as a nurse within the local community and hospitals in the area, and I am passionate about delivering the highest quality of care to those we support. There's never a dull day!

I consider myself to be extremely privileged to work with such wonderful people, full of humour with wonderful stories to tell. I know it’s a cliché, but we are like one big happy family—I love being here!  I am lucky to be supported by a fantastic team that demonstrate a nurturing warm and compassionate approach.   The homes core objective is to promote a quality ethos centred person centred care, enabling and giving peace of mind to everyone we come into contact with.

Rachael Longley

Deputy Manager

Rachael qualified as a nurse in 2006. For the first four and a half years she worked in respiratory for those with high dependency. Rachael then worked in oncology for four years. Before joining Barchester in 2018 Rachael spent four years with a private care provider as a nurse consultant.

Heidi Gilbert

Activities Coordinator

Having worked in care for the last 10 years, I have experienced residential, nursing and home care as part of the care team, all of which have been rewarding and provided me with a great deal of knowledge and experience, my most recent posting was managing an independent living service in Leeds, following a move to York and having my little girl I wanted to have the opportunity to support residents to benefit from social stimulation, over the years I have seen how this can have a positive impact on the well-being of residents living in care setting.

My hobbies outside of work are walking in the Lake District and Scotland, I will look forward days walking in the local area with the residents and on those not so nice days being creative with crafts and flower arranging within the home.

Hi, we are Heidi, Wendy and Caroline and we are the Activities team here at Stamford Bridge Beaumont.

We all know that keeping active is important. We have created a wonderful culture within the home and we work together to give residents the best possible experience. We are here to ensure that residents enjoy an environment that is both stimulating and socially active.

We ensure the team knows each residents' preferences, so that we can deliver a person-centered program of events and activities. Essential to our homely feel is the strong relationships of trust we build with residents and their families and friends. The home also has its very own minibus for our numerous outings for coffee and shopping, which residents love.
