Jenny Bloomberg
Jenny Bloomberg
Care Relations Manager

Jenny, our Care Relations Manager is our main contact for families who are looking for a Care Home.  She loves supporting people, showing prospective residents our home and helps them make the best decision for their loved ones.

Thinking about moving a family member into a Care Home can be a confusing and disconcerting time.  Deciding on when it is the right time to move is a big step, it can be daunting and an unsettling time for those involved.  Jenny is always available to have a conversation about individual care needs and answer any questions you may have. 

Having been through a similar situation with a family member who lived with dementia, she can really understand and empathise with every step of the journey families are having to take.  She’s passionate about care and helping people to live well as they grow old, and recognises the huge benefits of being in a community filled with love and kindness.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Good food and a healthy balanced diet with plenty of variety are at the heart of our ethos, and in addition, we can cater for special dietary requirements. All food is prepared in our kitchen using fresh ingredients by our experienced chefs. If residents would like something that is not on the menu, we will always try to accommodate them and we ensure fresh fruit is always available. The menu changes on a regular basis to ensure variety.

Main meals are generally taken in the dining room but may be served in a resident’s room if requested. In addition, tea, coffee and soft drinks are served throughout the day in the lounge or their rooms. Relatives are welcome to dine with residents by prior arrangement.

Activities Are So Important

At Kingfishers we take time getting to know our residents. We help people settle in through finding out a little about their past experiences and talking to them about what they might enjoy and be interested in now. 

All our dedicated staff assist in making the basic activities of daily living a pleasurable experience. A varied programme of activities, with new ideas all the time, based on our current residents own interests, is provided by our Activities Co-ordinator. In addition, bedside visits, small group and one to one activities also take place.

Whenever possible, residents are encouraged to spend at least part of the day away from their bedrooms in our communal areas. Many activities take place in the lounge so that everyone can feel included – if they want to, through participation, or just being able to enjoy watching and listening. Care staff and visitors often join in as well.
