Feedback from some of our other new homes

“Wonderful state-of-the-art, newly built care home with spacious en-suite rooms and beautifully furnished sitting and dining rooms. But best of all, the staff were fantastic, both caring and professional. My mother could not have been better looked after.”

“Excellent in every way. Caring staff – nurses, assistants, management. Beautiful brand new home and gardens. My mother came in for respite care after a hospital visit – now she’s fine. Thanks for providing a great place.”

“Lovely brand new home, staff are very friendly. Grounds look nice, plenty of parking spaces. A really great looking place. Would recommend to anyone looking for a care home.”

“Fantastic. From the moment you park, you know. Benefiting from a brand new building the staff match the quality of the surroundings. So friendly that my Aunt is already settled after 48 hours. This is such a relief for my parents knowing that they’ve made the right decision. I can’t wait to visit, that says it all.”

Manager's Profile

As the Manager of Riverside Place, Ware, a new care home for 72 elderly residents due to open October 2018, my focus will be on providing a warm and loving environment for people coming to live with us.

With over 20 years in the care sector I will be proud to lead my professional Care Team in delivering the highest level of care and support for our residents. Beginning my career as a support worker for people with learning difficulties and mental health needs, I then moved into elderly care working as a Training Manager, Peripatetic Manager and subsequently a Home Manager.

I am extremely passionate about those living within our homes being consulted and involved in every aspect of their care. To support this we have recruited and trained wonderful colleagues who will seize every opportunity to get to know residents, relatives and friends and to meet residents’ particular needs well.

My commitment to professional development has equipped me well for my role here, where I work hard to ensure that those in my care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive. I promote an open-door policy encouraging residents, their families and my colleagues to approach me on any matter.

Caring Homes values match well with my own and I am totally committed to ensuring that residents receive the high levels of care, respect and protection they deserve. As a people person, what drives me and makes my job worthwhile, is the opportunity to make a positive impact in residents’ lives and their families’ lives. I believe by developing strong relationships with residents and their relatives, this makes to the successful running of a care home.
