Tilly Mwakatuma

Unit Lead - Memory Lane

I have worked with Barchester for ten years, but have only been at White Lodge since April 2016, where I was promoted to the Unit Lead for Memory Lane. I find it very rewarding working in Memory Lane with people who have different types of dementia and supporting their families. I feel very honoured to be part of a supportive team, as we all know that it can be very stressful at times but also very rewarding. I do encourage my team to be as supportive and understanding as possible towards the residents families due to the fact there are many emotional factors which play a massive part of this element.

Tina Hughes

Activities Coordinator

I have previously worked for Barchester at White Lodge in 2008 for over 6 years as part of the activities team, which I thoroughly enjoyed, so I have now decided to return to my role after missing it greatly.

I enjoy my job and it's lovely to see residents happy, laughing and enjoying themselves; it makes me feel like I’m really making a difference whilst being here.

Adam Hoggan

Head Chef

I’m 29 years old and I’ve been a chef for over 10 years. I started out in a nursing home in my home town as a kitchen porter, but with hard work and determination I built up the required skills to get where I am today.

I love what I do; I have a passion for the industry and enjoy creating new ways to help the variety of people who we provide for. I’m always open to new ideas, enjoy engaging with people and I am very approachable.

I very much look forward to getting to know all the residents and their loved ones in the near future.
