Our Team
Lauren Walker
Lauren Walker
Lead Activities Coordinator

My name is Lauren Walker and I joined Middletown Grange as an Activities Coordinator in 2018 after working as a domiciliary carer for two years. I feel very privileged to have such a rewarding job and I am inspired by listening to residents' life stories. After studying Event Management at university, I am really looking forward to using my skills and knowledge within the care home.

Activities Coordinator

I have worked as an Activities Coordinator since 2017 here at Middletown. I find this role to be exciting, fun and challenging in a different way each day. I find when working in activities, you not only have to be a member of staff, but also a friend, a supportive and caring person, and help to bring the individuality out of every single person to give them the most meaningful experience you can. I’ll always have a smile or a joke to crack and I’m a little bit mad, which I think is a special skill required for the job.

Toby Webb

Head Chef

I have been working in the catering industry for over 30 years and have been with Barchester since 2012. I am committed to providing delicious home-cooked food for residents, which we prepare in-house. I am also responsible for ensuring that residents' nutritional needs are met and that they enjoy everything they eat.

Jadwiga and Darius are our kitchen team, and support our head chef Toby. They have been working for Barchester for a combined 13 years, with Jad starting in December 2009. Both come from Poland and are part of a strong polish community within the home which stretches from kitchen to care and even housekeeping. They dedicate themselves to the residents and provide support to other members of any department.

Jag Aguinaldo
Jag Aguinaldo
Care Practitioner

I started here at Middletown Grange as a Care Assistant in 2015, moving on to become a Senior carer, a Mentoring Lead and, most recently, a Care Practitioner, after finishing my training course, which allows me to lead as a nurse on the floor.

This training has meant taking on a lot more responsibility, but I thrive on it, finding it more of a challenge and a lot of fun as well. Leading a team that I have been a part for so long means we work well together and have a supportive and efficient environment, which is amazing.

Activities Are So Important

We aim to provide a variety of activities that will both mentally and physically stimulate the people we support. Residents have a range of different needs and interests, and it is crucial that these are reflected in the activities available, so that each individual is able to participate to the best of their ability. We organise both group and individual social events that everyone is welcome to take part in; there is a weekly outing to local places of interest, including the garden centre and the local farms, parks and museums. In addition, we enjoy regular visits from entertainers and even exotic animals. We also host events such as 'Beach Day' that relatives and friends are encouraged to participate in. Getting involved in charities is a big part of our ethos, so events such as 'PJs for Pudsey' and pirate-themed days are regularly hosted to raise money for different foundations, including the Alzheimer’s Society.
