Meet The Manager

Lisa Singh is Home Manager at Kendal Care Home.

I have been working within Health and Social Care for over 20 years.  I started in Community Services, rising up the ranks very quickly to Registered Manager.  I wanted to learn as much about the industry as possible, so when I got an opportunity to work with people with Learning Disabilities as the Registered Manager I jumped at it  

Later I took the opportunity to work for Blackpool Social Services as an Intermediate Care and Rehabilitation Manager giving me the opportunity to understand Health and Social Care inside Social Services.  Developing my skills and experience further to position of Regional Manager for Community Services across the North Wales and Cheshire. Thereafter I continued to further my career to Regional Director covering the North of England  

I have now decided to settle back into looking after one service and using my skills and knowledge, it is my ambition to take Kendal Care Home from strength to strength

Description

We recognise that it’s not just about physical care, but also about supporting our residents to obtain the best from their lives.

To achieve this we employ fully trained and dedicated professionals. We continue to develop their skills and knowledge to ensure that exceptionally high standards of person-centred care is delivered in a friendly manner throughout our service. A comprehensive approach to care Every resident has a personalised care plan where residents and families may contribute, which describes what help and assistance they require and how they would like their care to be provided.

The care plan includes all aspects of daily living such as medication, routines, how they prefer to be addressed, and their likes and dislikes. It enables our carers to provide thoughtful and individual care to our residents ensuring their needs are met in a safe, secure and relaxed atmosphere.

Our home appreciates that families, friends and the wider community, as well as other professionals such as doctors and social workers are important to the lives of our residents and to the Care Home.

Although all our professional carers work to ensure that our residents’ needs and preferences are met, we also provide every resident with a named member of staff who will act as their Key Worker. This ensures continued familiarity for each resident.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Activities Are So Important

Our home assists residents in developing and maintaining their social interests and engaging in meaningful activities. This is supported by all our staff but especially by our dedicated activity staff who help co-ordinate programmes for our residents according to their choices and individual hobbies.

On any particular day, our residents could be enjoying a drive in a car or mini-bus, participating in reminiscence workshops, planting their favourite flowers in the garden, or enjoying a cinema afternoon with a glass of champagne.

Residents can freely entertain their guests in the communal and private areas of the home, or in the privacy of their own bedroom. Our home has an in-house hairdressing and beauty salon offering the opportunity for a well deserved pampering.
