Meet The Manager

Alicia Taskis is Home Manager at Shedfield Lodge.

Having been in the care industry for over 20 years, my experience has been gained in Nursing, Residential and EMI settings with BUPA and Independent providers. My roles have encompassed most elements of caring about people at various stages of their lives with varying cognitive ability.

I first joined the care team at Shedfield Lodge in 2010 and progressed to the role of Care Plan Co-ordinator in 2013 and then to Head of Care in 2016 before becoming the Registered Manager in 2017. Having gained a QCF Level 5 Diploma in Leadership For Health and Social Care, I am currently undertaking a Level 7 Diploma.

My mission is to provide a truly person-centred approach to care that recognises and values each individuals uniqueness, treats them with dignity and respect and understands the world from their prospective in an environment that supports their psychological needs ensuring their personhood, throughout.

Our Building and Facilities

Shedfield Lodge was built in the 1800's as a Manor House set in the Victorian Rural Pastures at the heart of the Meon Valley, close to the select villages of Shedfield and Wickham. We are only a few minutes from Fareham. To this day the building has been restored to reflect the original design and this is now a long established care home, specialising in dementia, for the elderly. Set in our own quiet equestrian grounds housing a recently restored stable area, we benefit from many horses and Shetland ponies grazing the surrounding fields. We have a beautiful landscaped garden featuring a fishpond with easy access for wheelchair users.

Proprietor

On leaving school at 17 I joined the Royal Navy as a Paramedic and served 7 years reaching the dizzy heights of Leading Medical Assistant(Operating theatre)

During my time in the Royal Navy I trained in Norway in the Surgical Support team and served on the hospital ship RFA Argus during the Gulf War. Most of my time was in the Operating theatre at RNH Haslar assisting surgeons and Anaesthetists after a further 2 years medical training on top of the Medic training.

On leaving the Navy in 1992 I joined the Hampshire Constabulary serving 10 years in Portsmouth as a Police Constable driving the Area Car response vehicle.

It is an honour to go full circle and go back to my roots of medicine and looking after the elderly living with Dementia.

I am passionate about my job within the care industry and attend the care home most days. I have a great team of care staff and together we make an Outstanding Care home to live in.
