Meet The Manager

Suzanne Owen is General Manager at Iddenshall Hall.

I qualified as a Mental Health Nurse in 1989 and have worked for both the NHS and in private sectors. I have specialised in care of the elderly within the private sector since 1996 and have worked for small, family run businesses, as well as for large corporate providers.

I enjoy assisting with the development of my team, in addition to maintaining excellent relationships with residents, relatives, stakeholders, regulators and the multidisciplinary teams. 

As a team, we have achieved accreditation at both Beeston View and Iddenshall Hall due to delivering person-centred care to levels that deemed the homes as centres of excellence.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Food and Nutrition at Iddenshall Hall

Our Head Chef is proud to be part of the team here at Iddenshall Hall. His job is to manage the catering department, ensuring they provide excellent meals and drinks in line with our residents varying requirements and nutritional needs while ensuring the highest standards of food safety.

The Head Chef and his team enjoy conjuring up interesting and new menus and ideas to delight residents, families and visitors to the home. They hold regular themed events and enjoy the challenge of delivering lots of interesting food related experiences. For a taste of what we offer, please see the example below.

Dietary requirements

For residents that have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu of the day so that is it a soft, palatable dish. To support our chefs in producing these dishes, our hospitality and Chef Academy organises theory and practical workshops. Working in partnership with Nutricia, our practical workshops involve all chefs and deputy managers learning about dysphagia and producing these modified menus. The chefs work with the chef trainer to prepare fork mashable and thick puree meals to the correct consistency, taste and presentation. The deputy managers can then ensure all modified menus served are presented correctly for our residents.

Attracting top chefs

Our chefs are recruited on the basis of an interview with the regional hospitality support team and the manager for the home. Selection also involves a practical element where potential cooks are asked to cook for and meet a panel of people living in the home. Chefs take their job extremely seriously and our annual Chef competition sees our chefs battle it out in regional heats and then at a national final for the accolade of 'Barchester's Chef of the Year'.

Activities Are So Important

Activities here at Iddenshall Hall are an integral part of every day life for each of our residents. We strive to include as many of our residents as possible with the activities schedule. Our Schedule is released monthly and includes activities such as poetry afternoons, indoor games, Bingo, flower arranging, pamper days, quizzes, exercises, various musicians and entertainers, Pat Dog Visits, Music Therapy, discussion groups and trips out in our minibus to local places of interest and further afield to see the Blackpool Lights or to Knowsley Safari Park.

We are constantly asking the people who live in our home which events they would like to see taking place and we endeavor to fulfill these requests. Our aim is to provide a varied and packed schedule which allows for a vast array of skill bases and capabilities. We are in constant contact with local groups and businesses, the local Beaver Scout group are always happy to pay a visit to our home, helping with the garden or coming at Christmas to sing carols for us. We also have a small group of volunteers to help us, including pupils from our local 6th form College who visit once a week.

All the above helps ensure the lives of our Residents are fun and fulfilled.
