Meet The Manager

Ellie Faramarzian is General Manager at Signature at Elton House.

I have worked for 20 years as a nurse in acute and elderly care. Over the past 10 years I have specialised in elderly care and with people living with dementia. More recently I have worked as a General Manager for another care provider, and was the main driving force behind our home receiving an Outstanding rating from the CQC. I’m passionate about forging links with the local community, for example championing ‘dementia cafes’, which allow people to experience living in a care home.

I chose to join Signature as they offer the highest standard of care as well as providing a luxury yet homely environment. I am excited about being a part of making Elton House a place that people can call home, yet where they receive the highest quality person-centred care. I am driven to provide outstanding person-centred care by supporting the team to achieve excellence.

I have worked in the health care sector for over 16 years and within this time, I have developed my skills in leadership and management and really enjoy working within the care sector because of the genuine passion I have to care for the wonder that is our elderly generation. As Dementia Care Manager at Signature Elton House, it is my responsibility to ensure that our residents are delivered the highest standards of person-centred care and that they are supported to live a fulfilling and happy life whilst living with Dementia. I truly believe that all of our residents deserve nothing but the best and I am very lucky to be part of a caring and empathetic team who have the same ethos and strive to achieve this always.

Client Liaison Manager

I am the first point of contact for both seniors and their families enquiring about care options. I am proud to invite people to take a tour of our community and make sure they leave with all the relevant information, having experienced Signature in action. The most rewarding aspect is supporting both families and seniors by being able to guide and counsel them on what can be an emotional experience. I feel privileged to help in the journey towards making the decision to join our community and then, seeing new residents flourish and make new friends  is the ultimate reward.

I’ve been in the care sector for 22 years. The joy of meeting new families and making a positive contribution to the lives of each and every one of our residents is truly rewarding.

I have the honour of leading a fabulous and compassionate team of carers with many years of experience. I feel very blessed being part of the Signature family and I am confident that we are able to make such a difference in crucial moments of an individual’s journey, whether it’s a lifestyle choice or a care need.
My experience has taken me on a training pathway with medication and manual handling and I am looking forward to being the internal trainer for Elton house.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At Signature, we take great care to ensure that our food is prepared using the highest quality ingredients to ensure a well-balanced and nutritious diet for all our residents. Our food is made by professionally trained chefs and the delicious menus are inspired by Jane Devonshire, MasterChef 2016 winner.

We take pride in producing healthy, appetising food that provides good nutrition and hydration essential to wellness and the physical and mental well-being of our residents. All our meals are freshly prepared, packed full of flavour and include all the seasonal favourites. In addition to our dining times residents can enjoy a range of lighter meals and snacks throughout the day. We have well-stocked cafés serving speciality teas, freshly ground coffee, flavoured water, fruit juices, homemade cakes and light snacks.

Our café areas provide the perfect environment for family visits as well as socialising with other residents and guests. We make sure that we cater to individual dietary needs and recognise personal preferences and we do all we can to ensure that our residents enjoy their dining experience with Signature. Our homes are fully licensed and stock a great selection of wines, beers and spirits for residents, their guests and visitors to enjoy.

Across all Signature homes we offer choice and variety so that residents fully enjoy their dining experience. Whether you prefer a formal or informal environment, you can choose from a range of options including the formal restaurant areas that offer silver service, informal bistros for a more casual dining experience, café areas near the main entrances for coffee, light bites and snacks. Each home has a private dining room so that residents can enjoy special occasions with family and friends. We even offer alfresco dining on our pretty sun terraces for those long lazy summer days.

Our chefs offer fresh, seasonal menus that change daily for lunch and dinner. Each menu lists all allergies and we cater for all dietary requirements. Whether it be vegetarian, pescatarian or even vegan, at Signature we go above and beyond to make sure our residents’ tastes and needs are met, and they are well looked after. When a new resident joins a Signature home, we make every effort to learn what the resident likes and do all that we can to meet their tastes and preferences.

Every Signature home offers a stylish private dining facility for residents to enjoy with their family and friends. Celebrating happy times, such as birthdays or anniversaries is a lovely way to enjoy the facilities. By request, a special menu can be designed by our head chefs and all our homes are fully licensed offering a great wine list to add to the occasion.

Activities Are So Important

Every signature home has a dedicated activities team organised by an activities manager. With extensive weekly activity calendars, there is always plenty to choose from, whatever a resident’s mobility level. Activities inside our homes include ballroom dancing, board games, guest musicians and speakers and of course our ever-popular bridge tournaments. We also organise regular outings, from theatre and cinema trips to nature walks, shopping trips and church services. Many of our homes also have gardening areas and potting sheds, where green-fingered residents can tend their own plot.

The wellbeing of our residents is always our main concern, and Signature life is designed to provide a full spectrum of physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Regular exercise classes for all abilities, physiotherapy treatments in our specialist therapy rooms, and country trips are just some of the activities by which Signature maintains physical wellbeing. Stimulating activities such as crossword challenges, quiz nights and foreign language classes offer a great range of options for mental wellbeing. The sense of community and companionship offered by all of our social areas and communal activities offers emotional wellbeing that would not usually be available outside the Signature family.
