Meet The Manager

Arnold Pariag is Registered Manager at Romford Care Home.

I Joined Romford Care Home in June 2019. Having moved from the Caribbean 33 years ago I started RMN training in Barnet. I have a MSc in Mental Health, Community Specialism, Registered Specialist Practitioner and a diploma in Dementia Care.
Having commenced with the private sector almost 2 years ago I feel my background and knowledge working my entire life within Older Adult Mental Health Services gives me a greater understanding of the needs and wellbeing of our residents. I am committed to my role from both a Managerial and Clinical stance.

I have a huge passion for delivering the best care and wellbeing setting possible and always encourage my team to strive to be the best they can be.

I love running as a pastime and feel it gives me the opportunity to reflect on the day and prepare for the next.

Situated in a pleasant residential area, Romford Care Home is purpose-built and carefully designed to support our residents to live happy, fulfilled and comfortable lives.

Our team cares for our residents with the same kindness and warmth shown to members of their own family. Working closely together, they provide residential care, residential dementia care, nursing care, nursing dementia care and end of life care.

Located over two floors, our home includes light and airy, open plan lounge/diners as well as spacious en-suite bedrooms, and a variety of communal spaces such as a library, dementia-friendly garden room, hair salon, and activities room.

Our landscaped gardens are wheelchair accessible and designed to be a welcoming place for people to relax on one of the patios complete with outdoor furniture, or to enjoy a spot of light gardening.

We also have available for resident and family visiting an Edison DayLodge.

The lodges give residents and their families the peace-of-mind that it’s a clean and safe environment thanks to the Automatic Sanitisation System that’s guaranteed to kill 99.9% off all germs, including the Coronavirus (as stated by Edison & Day®). Other important safety features include separate entrances for residents and visitors, and a plexiglass room divider. It also has the added benefit of heating and air-conditioning so, whatever the weather, everyone can enjoy their visit in comfort.

The Day Lodge is comfortable and bright with spacious facilities that have been beautifully furnished and decorated for maximum comfort, creating a peaceful and homely atmosphere for safe visitation; enabling residents to spend time with their loved ones whilst adhering to Government and Public Health Guidelines.

They are the perfect place to allow families to spend quality time together, worry free.

Customer Relations Manager

 My role as Romford Nursing Care Home's Customer Relations Manager is to support residents and families who are looking at moving in to a care environment. 

I feel very strongly about being able to offer the best advice and guidance about the facilities and services within our Home.

No two journeys are the same and I pride myself on building a relationship with each prospective resident and their family. I feel privileged to be part of their journey and to have the opportunity to continue to support them throughout.

Every day is different, but I go home with a sense of pride that I have made a difference to the lives of our residents and their families

I live within walking distance of the home with my husband and young son, which gives my strong links to the local community.

Team Leader


I started work at Romford Care Home 2 years ago and I love that every day brings new challenges and new rewards.

I have a passion for learning about cognitive testing and the ACI treatments that can be used to enhance the resident’s lives.

I’m very passionate about the residents in my care and I have a good understanding of the science of people and their behaviours as well as the difficulties faced by individuals with a cognitive decline, which I believe show through in my work.

This year has been challenging for all of us butt I always try to keep a positive mindset and believe laughter and smiles is a great healer. I also try to have a balanced approach and offer constructive comments to aid the training of new staff members.

I’m very eager to learn and would welcome the opportunity to enhance my career further within the care industry and Romford Care Home.

Administrator

My previous experience lies within the HR field mostly in the Retail/Distribution and more recently in the Travel.

My role as the homes administrator is to support the home and the senior team in ensuring the day to day running of the home. A pivotal part of my role is my communications and relations with the residents and their families, which is something that I am very passionate about.  

We have a great team here at Romford Care Home who are very supportive, we really are a family orientated and focused home.

Outside of work I enjoy time spent with my family and also have a keen interest in dancing (Latin/salsa) with my husband.

Lifestyle Co-ordinator


I recently joined the Romford Care Home family and I'm really looking forward to supporting the residents and being instrumental in being able to provide meaningful, enjoyable, engaging and stimulating activities to all of the residents. 

I started working in the care sector at the age of 16 and was a Psychiatric Nurse for 8 years, I hold Stage 1 & 2 in British Sign Language which I enjoy using especially when I was working with young adults and children with learning disabilities. I have spent the last 6 years working within a childcare setting but felt it was time to come full circle and return to my true passion within residential care.

The best part of my daily routine is standing back and seeing the joy on the residents faces and knowing that I have made a difference.

Head Chef

I have worked at Romford Care Home for a number of years, starting out as a Care Assistance and then following my dream to become the home’s Head Chef.

I pride myself on ensuring a quality service for the residents and I am very committed and dedicated to ensuring a high standard of freshly produced, wholesome and nutritious food for every meal.

 I work closely in collaboration with the home’s wellbeing coordinator with a keen aim to ensure a seamless approach in any planned functions within the home such as Birthdays and special events.

I also love sharing my experience in the kitchen by baking with the residents, and letting them experience what goes on behind closed the scenes with regards to making their food.

I also like to spend time each week with all of the residents to give them all the opportunity to request new dishes to try.

I love using my creativity to adapt traditional dishes if the opportunity comes up.

Ancillary Manager

I started working at Romford Care Home when the home first opened 11 years ago as a Domestic Assistant. After 4 years the opportunity came up to go for the Ancillary Managers position. I previously studied Health and Social Care at College so this has been a great opportunity to extent my knowledge.

I currently manager a team of 10, which includes 8 Domestic staff and 2 Laundry staff.

The home has 114 rooms, so my day is always full on. I love the work flow of the job and also the team work side where we all pull together to make sure the residents are well cared for.

Another element of my role is being able to support other departments, I often try to get involved with our Lifestyle Team and their events.

The most rewarding part of my job is listening to the resident’s stories and getting to know them all and their families.

Activities Are So Important

Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Romford is a key focus for our dedicated team.

By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes as well as activities they may like to try.

No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.

In addition to keeping fit with our chair-based exercises, art therapy, baking, quizzes, our knit and natter club, and movie nights, we also take great pleasure in welcoming visiting entertainers, schools, nurseries and groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents.

Our team and residents also love visiting local attractions and getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year – complete with themed menus and decorations!
