Hi, my name is Katya, and I am the General Manager here at Wood Grange. Welcome to our website!
I have the honour to lead the team and serve the residents here at Wood Grange. I understand that taking the step of choosing a care home can be a difficult and emotional decision, so myself and my team are here to support you.
I have been working for Barchester at Wood Grange since 2002 and have been in the nursing profession since 1986. I started my journey and career at Barchester as a Senior Care Assistant and worked my way through various roles throughout the years. I realised that there’s nothing more important to me than making people happy; sometimes it can be the simple things that help, like making them feel heard and valued.
I strive to make every day special and different to yesterday for all residents, and I feel proud to be part of their lives and share their memories.
During my time at Wood Grange, I was named as 'Nurse of the Year' at the 2013 Barchester Care Awards, which is one of my greatest achievements and a very proud moment.
Ensuring peace of mind for all relatives is one of my greatest objectives; it is imperative that they know their loved ones are in safe hands and are in a caring and joyful environment.
The residents are at the heart of everything we do here at Wood Grange, and we think we are perfectly suited to meet your needs now and in the future.
