Meet The Manager

Karen Fitzgerald is General Manager at Oak Grange.

I qualified as a mental health nurse in 2010, and since then have always worked within the private sector, firstly as a nurse, then unit manager, and eventually as a home manager and regional manager. 

Prior to becoming a nurse, I worked in administration management and spent 10 years in education, working with young people who struggled with social, emotional and behavioural skills. I have a keen interest in studying emotional intelligence and enjoy personal study looking into various mental health therapies.   

I am proud and privileged to have had the opportunity to nurse and care for our elderly generation, and I hope to continue to do so for many years to come. 

Karen Fitzgerald

Our Team
Alison Clarke
Alison Clarke
Deputy Manager and Clinical Lead

I have been fortunate to have a career in nursing that has spanned both the NHS and private sector since 1994. I joined Barchester in 2015 and was privileged to start my employment as a General Nurse and be promoted to Community Manager, then finally to Deputy Manager & Clinical Lead.

I have a passion for the care of older people and I endeavour to provide a homely atmosphere for residents and their families, whilst also promoting high standards of evidence-based clinical care.

We have a fantastic team here at Oak Grange who are all committed to delivering the best possible care to those we support.

Francesca Cady
Francesca Cady
Community Manager

I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 2011 and have been working in the care home sector since 2011. My employment started as a Care Assistant in a residential home; I continued to work there part time whilst training to be a nurse. My experiences in this care home made me passionate about elderly care, which is what I decided to focus my career on.

I am now the Community Manager in Oak Grange's General Nursing Community and I have enjoyed making a difference to the lives of residents; my goal is to ensure that people in my care enjoy their time at Oak Grange.

Administrator

I have been working for Barchester since Oak Grange opened its doors in 2012. I live very local to Oak Grange so close that I watched the building grow week on week and often said to myself I am going to work there, and here I am. I was I consider myself to be extremely privileged to work with such wonderful people, full of humour with wonderful stories to tell. I know its a cliché but we are like one big happy family, I love being here!

Activities Team

We all know that keeping active is important. We have created a wonderful culture within the home and we work together to give residents the best possible experience. We are here to ensure that residents enjoy an environment that is both stimulating and socially active. We ensure the team knows each residents' preferences, so that we can deliver a person-centered program of events and activities. Essential to our homely feel is the strong relationships of trust we build with residents and their families and friends. The home also has its very own minibus for our numerous outings for coffee and shopping, which residents love.

Maintenance Manager

Hello, my name is Szliard, but I like to be called Sid. I joined Oak Grange in 2017 as the home's gardener and maintenance assistant before moving to the role of maintenance manager in July 2019. During this period outside of work, I successfully completed a BA Hons Business degree, and have now started a Master’s in Human Resource Management.

Maintenance is paramount when it comes to our residents, relatives and colleagues, and my role is to keep the home environment to the highest standards possible, ultimately creating a safe and warm place for our residents to live and my colleagues to work.

I also manage and deal with contractors, keeping records up-to-date for our audits.
