Meet The Manager

Angie Sacks is Acting Manager at Honey Lane Care Home.

Our Acting Home Manager Angie joined the Carebase family at Honey Lane in 2013. Showing a natural flair for care, she quickly progressed to the role of Senior before moving in 2015 to our sister home, 1 Sewardstone Close, which cares for adults with an acquired brain injury. Over the course of the next three years, she was promoted from a Team Leader to the home’s Head of Care, working closely with multidisciplinary teams including speech and language therapists and psychologists. Angie returned to Honey Lane in February 2022 as Deputy Manager.

Speaking about her role at Honey Lane, Angie said: “We support residents to live a life which is meaningful to them and one where they are able to spend their time doing the things they love. It’s a privilege to get to know our residents and nothing makes me happier than seeing them content and well looked-after.”

Angie Sacks

Honey Lane is an award-winning care home offering high-quality residential dementia care in a loving, vibrant and homely environment, that has been rated as ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in February 2021.

The highly skilled and experienced care team ensures that individuals live well with dementia and achieve a better quality of life by receiving exceptional levels of personalised care, stimulation and social interaction that improves overall wellbeing.

The fun and vibrant atmosphere at Honey Lane is truly unlike any other care home and residents are provided with many and varied ways to spend their days that are purposeful and meaningful to them.

Honey Lane is laid out on one floor allowing residents to move purposefully and safely around the home with direct access to the beautiful courtyard garden that offers a peaceful and tranquil space and a kitchen garden where residents are able to get involved in a variety of gardening activities.

Honey Lane appreciates that many families cope alone for some time before considering a long-term care option. The respite services offered by the home provide an opportunity for family carers to have a break whilst their loved one gets to experience all that Honey Lane Care Home has to offer.

Having won over 25 care industry accolades, the company has a reputation for delivering exceptional care. They pride themselves on providing families with reassurance and peace of mind that they are being cared for by a trusted and reputable provider, with care and compassion at the forefront of all they do.

Description

At the heart of the wonderful care we provide at Honey Lane in Waltham Abbey is our compassionate team formed of carers, managers and team leaders and members of our wider support team such as catering, housekeeping, lifestyles and front of house.

Lead by our amazing home manager Marta, all of our team members are carefully chosen for their values and unwavering dedication to caring for our residents with tenderness, kindness and respect. We nurture and invest in them – ensuring they feel valued, happy and love being part of our extended family.

Our focus on creating a wonderful home in which to live and work means we are able to retain the very best team members, valuing the contribution they make, each and every day.

This in turn helps us to provide consistency for residents and exceptional care, through people who value the same things we do, receive ongoing training, support and recognition and are skilled and confident – understanding each individual resident, who they are and what they need to lead happy and fulfilling lives.

This compassionate approach is also extended to people looking for care for a loved one, as well as our residents’ families, helping & supporting them through what can be a very emotional time.

Activities Are So Important

PROVIDING MEANINGFUL ACTIVITIES FOR OUR ELDERLY RESIDENTS

Our residents’ ongoing health and wellbeing is extremely important to us and we recognise that keeping active, both mentally and physically, whilst maintaining a sense of purpose and meaning are key to individuals’ happiness, contentment and joy.

In partnership with our residents and those closest to them, our dedicated lifestyle team develops a varied programme of meaningful activities, events and celebrations which are personalised to individuals’ likes, dislikes, abilities and care needs as well as aspirations and dreams for the future.

Our whole team supports our residents to rekindle interests and hobbies, whilst also gently encouraging them to try new things they might enjoy, either as part of a group of friends, on a 1-2-1 basis and in their own room, if they prefer.

MAINTAINING AN ACTIVE BODY AND MIND

Regular opportunities to exercise bring fun and laughter, whilst giving everyone the opportunity to stay as active as they’re personally able to. For some, that may be through seated exercises from the comfort of their own chair and movement to music classes whilst, for others, it’s boxercise with our trainer, Curtis.

To keep our minds active, we host regular reminiscence sessions and enjoy many puzzles and games. Arts and crafts are also a popular past-time, painting, making cards, décolletage – anything to get our creative juices flowing.

Also, key to supporting health and wellbeing are our horticultural-themed activities in our care home, where the green-fingered amongst us tend to our beautiful gardens in the great outdoors, enjoy pottering in the greenhouse, or doing a spot of flower arranging.
