Manager's Perspective

Caring for people is our passion. Managing that care within an ever-changing world is our business. Our managers aim is to provide their residents with the highest standards of care at all times. To achieve this, we have a strong commitment to keep abreast of care industry developments and to pursue excellence. Your care is our passion.

A word from the Manager: 

Environment 

My top priority as Manager here at Antiquary is to create an atmosphere within the home that is homely for our residents, caring, welcoming and above all, happy.

We actively encourage our residents to take part in various day trips, activities or events organised by our team and feel these have unparalleled benefits on their health, happiness and well-being.

Activities and Events 

Recently at the home, residents have been able to take part in our popular 'Dementia Walks' which bring much enjoyment and really benefit our residents who have this condition. We also like to involve our residents as much as possible in decisions around the home and recently, sought their advice on wallpaper and other interior choices for various rooms within the home. They enjoyed being a-part of this and it helped them really feel as if this is their home, which is so important to me as Manager. 

Our Care Team

For me, what I feel really sets us apart as a home is our staff. The care and support provided on a daily basis, always with the residents' best interests and happiness at its core is second-to-none. Our longest serving member of staff has been with us for over 18 years and some other staff members have been with us for over 16 years. They are passionate about care, it's not just a job to them and this what I look for in all of my staff members.

I want life for my residents to consist of the highest levels of care and support out there, whilst being comfortable, lively and relaxed. This is their home and it is my job to ensure it is a very happy one.
