Meet The Manager

Matthew Smith is General Manager at Parker Meadows.

Having started here in 2021, I am thrilled to work within an organisation that shares the same vision and values that I hold in providing a high-quality service to those who need it most, whilst ensuring we maximise their independence and are able to live the lives they wish to lead. I moved into care gaining my NVQ’S, then into administration gaining my Level 2 in Business Administration, maintenance, activities and then into management positions where I completed my degree in Business, Management and Leadership. I am now proud to use those skills to be able to support team members to develop their professional development skill sets to achieve outcomes at times they don’t think is possible, alongside watching them grow not only in confidence but also developing their knowledge base to support better quality care.

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.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Independent Assessments We have been independently assessed in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
safe-tick Regulatory Assessment We have been assessed by the care regulator in our approach to infection control.
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

All Care UK homes now have purpose-built internal or external visiting suites available which enable visits to take place from behind a sealed glass panel, using a sound system to assist with communication. Where Government guidance and local health teams allow, these suites make it possible to continue visiting even when we have a case of Covid-19 in the home.

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.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling

Yes, our care home provides a telephone in all our resident’s rooms.

Social media provides an up to date window on the activities within a provider's setting.

With the restrictions on visiting during the pandemic, social media platforms such as these offer real insight when you are choosing a provider.

Elizabeth Kinyua
Elizabeth Kinyua
Deputy Manager

I started working here in 2019 as our Clinical Lead after working in another similar care setting. I am a qualified nurse, midwife and mentor. I have enjoyed the transition from a nurse, working on the care floor to becoming part of the management team and supporting all our team members to the best of my ability. I try to make every day an enjoyable day and love the interaction with the residents. 

I am involved with all aspects of the home which has earned me the fond name of ‘Busy Lizzie’ amongst my colleagues.

Zoe Kelly
Zoe Kelly
Activities Lead Coordinator

Since September 2012 I have been proud to have achieved NVQ 3 in both Health and Social Care and Certificate in Understanding the Principles of Dementia. In my role I need to have good listening skills and understanding of others likes, dislikes and abilities; this enables me to plan both group and individual activities to allow residents to have fun whilst keeping their interests and personal beliefs as part of their lives.

Elliot Steel
Elliot Steel
Head Chef

I joined the Parker Meadows team in May 2022, and I have over 30 years’ experience in the catering and hospitality industry at both Head Chef and within management. I have a Diploma in catering management and many NVQ’s including allergy awareness, and food safety and nutritional health.

I love to use my knowledge and experience to create mouth-watering and exciting menus for all the residents. I believe mealtimes should be the highlight of the day for residents. Colourful, balanced and healthy food can make a real difference and lift everyone’s spirits. I have a great team and we all strive for the best.

Vanda Smoth
Vanda Smoth
Team Leader

I have worked here since December 2012 and have achieved my NVQ Level 2, 3 and 4 in care and NVQ Level 5 Diploma in leadership. As well as, winning Registered Manager award. Previous to that, I was an assistant Manager for Hampshire County Council for 20 years, overseeing the day-to-day running of the home supporting the Home Manager.

We need to have empathy, understanding, and be caring. I love interacting and listening to residents, showing them I really care. I work hard to fill their days with laughter and activity, both within the home and outside in our gardens. I enjoy talking and having a laugh with them, and maybe sit having a cup of tea and a natter with a slice of cake. Having that time with them makes a lot of difference.

Beata Bojanowska
Beata Bojanowska
Receptionist

I have been working here since it first opened in 2012, and I am therefore very close with not only the other members of the team but also all of the residents. I enjoy welcoming new residents and their families, making their visits as pleasant as possible, as well as making it feel like home to everyone who lives here. Before I moved to England, I lived in Poland, The Netherlands and France. When living in Poland I studied law and sociology and then ultimately got a degree in sociology.

Maintenance

I am responsible for the repairs and upkeep of the home, ensuring the safety of everyone here and making sure everything stays looking good. I worked as a military aircraft engineer for 35 years, 12 months as a support worker and then moved as head of maintenance in a local authority care setting. I joined Care UK in January 2022, and was made to feel at home straight away. I love working with residents and making their rooms and communal areas feel just like home to them.
