Meet The Manager

Angela Roughton is Home Manager at Glenmoor House Care Home.

Hello, my name is Angela, and I am delighted to be the Home Manager here at Glenmoor House

I have 35 years of experience within the healthcare sector and have achieved qualifications such as Registered General Nurse. Working in residential and nursing settings, my previous roles were as a Nurse, Clinical Lead and Deputy Manager, where I have gained plenty of experience and valuable skills that help me to succeed today.

Within this time, I have shared many treasurable moments with the residents I have had the pleasure to meet. Seeing my residents smile each day gives me the motivation to perform at the highest level.

I would best describe myself as a very committed Home Manager, cheerful and caring, which is reflected in the environment we create here. In my spare time, I love to go on holidays, gardening and I am also an avid reader. So don’t be surprised if you catch me in our library!

I look forward to welcoming you to our home.

Glenmoor House Care Home on the Rockingham Road in Corby is long established and proud to be serving the elderly of Corby and Kettering. We provide a complete range of care from nursing through to residential and dementia care and we also offer respite care for carers who need a break or for people keen to sample what care home life is all about.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

We are confident that our care homes are now some of the very safest places to live and work.

All of our staff have been trained in additional and heightened cleansing protocols and hygiene regimes, and these are being supported by a leading sanitisation system as part of our comprehensive infection controls. Testing regimes will continue for staff, residents and visitors.

We have re-aligned the resident in-house services to meet social distance guidance from the Government, for areas such as lounges and dining rooms, and for visiting entertainers and hair dressers; we are working hard to restore these services within the ‘new normal’ circumstances as soon as we can, when lockdown rules allow.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

Avery Healthcare has invested in outdoor garden ‘visitor pods’

The pods, are a garden room specifically designed to facilitate safe face-to-face contact with relatives and visitors. Each pod contains a floor to ceiling partition screen and a hands-free intercom so that communication is clear and safe for use. They are fitted with internal electrics and two, low-surface temperature electric panel heaters – suitable for these winter months.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Description

We work hard to settle all our residents into home life as we appreciate that this can sometimes be a challenge. Our staff are experienced at making everyone feel as though they are in a home where residents are valued, their lives celebrated and memories shared. Our approach is holistic, catering for mind, body and soul and taking advantage of modern and technological resources to achieve this aim. We use the reminiscence magazine the Daily Sparkle to trigger memories and set communication going.

The Importance Of Meal Times

As well as using our garden for exercise, we like to relax there too and on special occasions enjoy a glass or two of Pimms. Tea and cake in the garden is not unusual either. But residents always manage to have a good appetite for the three healthy meals that are served up in our lovely dining room. Mealtimes are a great opportunity to come together and enjoy one another’s company, and the dining experience is an integral part of life at Glenmoor House.

If we have a themed day, then our chef will come up with the goods: Turkish Delight of course when the belly dancer came in, and other tasty Turkish treats. On ordinary days there is always a choice of dishes: good old favourites and plenty of fresh vegetables are beautifully presented along with hearty puddings. We welcome guests to join us at mealtimes, so come along and see for yourself.

Activities Are So Important

When the weather is fine we enjoy our games sessions in the garden – we have our own versions of tennis, darts and netball. Residents may not be up to same standard as in their youth, but all exercise is good and keeps people young. We go to the nearby Autumn Centre for Chair Exercise too. Some of us may even have taken up a few tips from the belly dancer who came to entertain us recently.

Our enthusiastic Activity Coordinators keep everyone busy and if not exercising, perhaps playing musical bingo, having a manicure or a massage or doing a quiz – Do you know why KitKat wrappers were blue in the last war? 

We believe that being involved with the local community is an important part of a fulfilled life. We have long standing relations with local schools and St Ninian’s church. Children from the nearby Rockingham Primary School come and visit and always bring a smile to our faces. We like to get out and about too and our minibus means we can go on regular outings, including trips to the theatre, the Autumn Centre, West Glebe Park or just for a relaxing meal in the pub.

Family and friends can always keep in touch with what is going on through our Facebook page, which includes recordings of some of our favourite activities as well as regular updates of upcoming events.
