Meet The Manager

Michelle Byrd is Home Manager at Uvedale Hall Residential Home.

As the Home manager of Uvedale Hall I take great pride in the care and support our staff offer the residents. Uvedale Hall has been voted a Top 20 Care Home in the East of England on two consecutive years. This reflects the high level of service provided by our dedicated staff. The residents are treated as extended family members by the staff. Uvedale Hall is one big happy family.

Here at Healthcare Homes Group, we are a recognised provider of care in residential and nursing home settings, in addition to delivering domiciliary homecare, across the East and South of England.

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Our Building and Facilities

Uvedale Hall is one of the finest residential care homes in Suffolk, offering an unparalleled range of facilities and services in idyllic surroundings. This beautiful Georgian home boasts three elegant lounges, a South-facing conservatory and a magnificent staircase, winding round a sparkling chandelier. Our single bedrooms are all en-suite, tastefully decorated and provide television and telephone points. Whilst they are all fully furnished, we encourage our residents to bring items of their own furniture and possessions with them so that their room can become truly their own.

Named after the famous botanist, Robert Uvedale, Uvedale Hall lies in the Gipping Valley in the pretty Suffolk town of Needham Market. Close to Stowmarket and Ipswich, the home also has Needham Lake nearby, a lovely walk for the more energetic resident. Whilst Robert Uvedale was renowned for propagating the Cedar of Lebanon tree, it is the hundred year old geranium plant in the resident’s conservatory that attracts everyone today. Well-kept gardens, including a central fountain, are also available for our residents to enjoy.

Description

We recognise that every person is different, so we create tailored care plans for each and every resident.

We work closely to identify the best care to suit your needs and the most appropriate setting in which this should be delivered.

We involve families and friends in the creation of each plan using the ‘care passports’ and life history records, so that each person receives the most beneficial care and support, taking into account their health and wellbeing, aspirations, wants, likes and dislikes.

We believe that our dedication to delivering the most individualised, personal care to all our residents is what makes us stand out, and ensures our residents enjoy living their lives to their fullest potential.

Train the Trainer

Why did you decide to work at Healthcare Home?

Wanted to work for a company that has the same values, compassion and ethos regarding the support and care we give to our residents.

What has been your biggest career highlight to date?

Supporting a resident with diagnosed korsakoff dementia, each day rebuilding their life, their strength and their abilities to eventually go home and live back in the community and living independently.

What are your interests outside of work/how do you unwind?

I have 9 grandchildren so spare time is limited, but just knowing they are growing up healthy and happy makes me happy. I also have a keen passion for photography.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Nutrition is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents; not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but ultimately we want residents to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.

Our chefs and nutritional leads fully assess all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and meal times. This is recorded and regularly monitored so the chefs are fully aware of everyone’s personal preferences.

All homes display a daily food menu, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mid-morning, afternoon and evening snacks and drinks are also served, however sandwiches, biscuits and other refreshments are available at any time of the day.

Our catering teams pride themselves on producing food of the highest quality, with many homes using local suppliers and all homes creating fresh, homemade dishes each and every day.

Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch.

Dietary Options
Diabetic, Pureed, Vegan, Vegetarian.
