Meet The Manager

Coni Anang is Home Manager at Vesta Lodge.

People are especially important to me, I love seeing the difference training, development and praise make in the lives of our staff, who in turn make our residents safe and happy’ – Coni Anang

The Home Manager runs all aspects of the home, taking care of the business side of things and ensuring their home provides a high standard of care. While each Manager brings their own flair to the role, they do all have some qualities in common, especially their leadership and organisational skills. The role is very varied, involving plenty of resident interaction alongside the more administrative work to keep the home running smoothly. Our Managers typically hold, or are working towards, a relevant qualification and have proven experience in caring for older people.

Assistant Manager

The Deputy Home Manager shares responsibility with the Home Manager for running the home. Deputy Manager’s will each bring their own skill set to the home, some offering more assistance with the business side of things while others focus largely on care. However, whether they look at it from a business or care perspective, the focus of the Deputy is always to ensure that their home is offering the very best quality of life for our residents. Experienced and either holding or working towards their qualifications, Deputy Home Managers are capable and driven to providing the best of everything for their residents.

Housekeeping Manager

Keeping the team of Housekeepers running as it should is the Housekeeping Manager. Supervising and organising their teams is just part of it as these Managers work alongside them to keep the home clean and inviting. The comfort of residents is the most important thing to our House Keeping Managers which is why they work so hard to create an environment in which residents can’t help but feel at home. Multi-tasking and communication skills are some of the most important of the House Keeping Manager’s qualities as they and their team create a home where resident’s dignity is never compromised and independence is always encouraged. Our Housekeeping Managers ensure that all areas of our home are safe, clean, well maintained and presented in a way to create a warm and homely environment. They have an important role in maintaining our infection, prevention and control standards to make sure our residents stay well.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Food isn’t only one of the greatest pleasures in life; it’s also vital to physical and mental well-being. That’s why we place such an emphasis on the experience of eating.

The chefs in our care homes can tailor each menu to meet a wide range of dietary requirements, and all our meals are prepared on site, using fresh ingredients from sustainable sources that are as local as possible. Meals can be enjoyed in our dining rooms or, if you’d prefer, in the privacy of your own room.

For a more sociable experience, you can also invite your family and friends to enjoy a meal with you, or attend one of our award winning Dining Club events... find out more about our Dining Clubs

Activities Are So Important

People are happier and more contented when they stay physically and socially active. That’s why, at every Quantum Care Home you will find a dedicated Activity Care Worker.

They’ll work with you to plan a wide range of activities for you to enjoy. They can help you pursue your favourite hobbies and interests, and maybe introduce you to some new ones. Some activities are enjoyed in groups, whilst others are offered on a one-to-one basis.

Feeling good is also about looking good. That’s why within our Homes you’ll find a hairdressing salon, laundry and ironing service.
