Debbie Goodsell, Home Admissions Adviser

Working for Gracewell of Frome is not just a job for me. Being able to help residents transition from home or hospital into a care home environment and into the next phase of their life is a huge responsibility and extremely rewarding. The care that we offer is complex and it is important to make the right choices for the right reasons, which is sometimes an emotional journey. I am extremely proud to work for the company in our amazing home which has a lively, homely feel. My role is to market and advertise the home with empathy and understanding of people’s needs and requirements. The team that I work with make this easy to achieve as we offer a wonderful product, fine dining, extensive entertainment, outings, activities and caring training professional staff. This is all achieved by respectful understanding of the individual resident’s needs. Nothing is too much trouble as it is always the little things that make the biggest impact.

Chris Dixon, Activities Co-ordinator

I have worked with Gracewell of Frome since 2014. I love my job as I get to know the residents personally and see them enjoy themselves which is hugely rewarding. We organise a variety of activities, entertainment and trips out which allow the residents to pick and choose what they wish to be involved in. This encourages person centred choices and enables residents to be involved in activities that truly interest them. Seeing the residents enjoy themselves is the best feeling and making this happen is what my job is all about.

Becki Macey, Activities Co-ordinator

I joined Gracewell of Frome in 2013 when the home first opened coming previously from a background in the care profession. I work closely with my colleague, Chris, to create a full and varied mix of events, outings and activities for our residents to enjoy. With such talented residents within our home it is wonderful to be able to showcase their many talents, including art classes, baking, quizzes, photography club and many more. The most enjoyable part of my role is to see the residents smile, laugh and get involved and take advantage of everything that is on offer to enhance their lives.
