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

I want the same type of environment for my residents here at The Glens that anybody would wish for from their own home environment; happy, calm, safe and homely.

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

Activities and Events

Recently, our residents have participated in ‘Go for Gold‘, an annual event that is a huge hit here at the home. Our residents loved the run up to last years event as they worked closely with the local school children and I was so happy to see the joy this brought, on both sides! We also run a regular ‘Puppet Gang’ show at the home and our residents love the humorous sketches. Every year we also help run the village charity shop for 2 weeks, residents love visiting the shop and some help out with the day-to-day running with staff. Weekly ‘Drum Workshops’ are also a great way to get our residents involved with music and have proved a real, surprise hit!

However, for me, the one thing that sets The Glens apart is our staff. The care, well-being and happiness of our residents is our priority and we work together as a team to ensure this at all times.

Stand-out Moment 

My proudest moment as Manager? We had a wonderful resident join us from the local hospital who had been informed by medical staff that she was deemed as palliative care as she had refused to have the treatment recommended to her by hospital staff for personal reasons. After a period of intense, alternative treatment and rehabilitation by our staff at the home and visiting professionals, she returned to her own home and is still doing extremely well to this day.
