Joanne

I have been in the caring profession for the past 38yrs and I believe everyone should have the best care possible, and we should treat everyone as if they are part of your family.

I have worked throughout the primary and secondary care sectors, and the knowledge gained will help me to ensure that the best care possible is achieved, from every level of the health sector.

We are privileged to be allowed to work in the residents home, and spend time with them in their twilight years.

Christine Davies, Home Admissions Adviser

Christine

I joined Gracewell Healthcare in February 2015, having reached a stage in my career where I truly wanted to make a difference every day to people’s lives, and have a positive impact on society. It is an absolute privilege to help seniors and their families during what can be a very difficult time. My role is to assist families with finding the right care solution for their loved one’s next chapter. Each individual and their families are treated with support, dignity, respect, empathy and understanding. I can now honestly say that I make a difference each and every day, sometimes it a small difference, but each small thing adds to the big difference!

Erika Tucaite-Liule, Office Manager

Erika

I have worked at Gracewell of Kentford for nearly 4 years and this is the job I really want to be in. I look forward to work each day. My job is very diverse and working in a Nursing Home has completely changed my outlook on life and I have a much better understanding of the needs of the elderly in care.

I find my job challenging but 100% fulfilling. The way the staff care for dementia residents is inspiring and I cannot praise them enough. We are a team at all times and I am proud to work at Gracewell of Kentford. 

Amanda Rose, Activities Co-ordinator

AmandaI have been with Gracewell of Kentford since October 2016. My career in senior living started due to my passion to assist and work with the elderly, beginning as a carer in the community. I have now been an Activity Co-ordinator for 5 years and I can truly say that I enjoy each and every day that I spend with my residents. Each one is an individual with amazing stories and experiences. I thrive to provide person centred activities ranging from musical afternoons to outing to town. When a new resident moves into our home, I quickly get to know them so that I can tailor activities to their likes and help them to settle in and live well in their new home.

Laurence Marsters, Head Chef

Laurence

I initially started with a four year Apprenticeship chef Newmarket General Hospital, and I spent two years, mainly in the dietary kitchen at Guys Hospital London. I then went on to be a chef at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, a return to proper cooking and that is where I met my wife. I then went back to Newmarket as Assistant Head Chef and then Head Chef after six months.

I then went on to lots of other locations and jobs throughout my career, always with a love for cooking. I’ve been working in cooking in the care sector for the last five years.
