Meet The Manager

Katya Petrova is General Manager at Woodgrange.

Hi, my name is Katya, and I am the General Manager here at Wood Grange. Welcome to our website!

I have the honour to lead the team and serve the residents here at Wood Grange. I have been working for Barchester since 2002 and have been in the nursing profession since 1986. I started my journey and career at Barchester as a Senior Care Assistant and worked my way through various roles throughout the years.

I strive to make every day special and different to yesterday for all residents, and I feel proud to be part of their lives and share their memories.

I was named as 'Nurse of the Year' at the 2013 Barchester Care Awards, which is one of my greatest achievements and a very proud moment.

Ensuring peace of mind for all relatives is one of my greatest objectives; it is imperative that they know their loved ones are in safe hands and are in a caring and joyful environment.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Food and Nutrition at our home

Our dishes here are constantly evolving, and take into account the desires of those we support, integrating seasonality into everything we prepare. Food and nutrition are at the heart of the home, so it is important that residents can enjoy a balanced diet that caters to individual dietary requirements. Whether people want to try something new and exciting, or just enjoy an old favourite, there is something for everyone on our menu. Please see below for more information.

Dietary requirements

For residents that have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu of the day so that is it a soft, palatable dish. To support our chefs in producing these dishes, our hospitality and Chef Academy organises theory and practical workshops. Working in partnership with Nutricia, our practical workshops involve all chefs and deputy managers learning about dysphagia and producing these modified menus. The chefs work with the chef trainer to prepare fork mashable and thick puree meals to the correct consistency, taste and presentation. The deputy managers can then ensure all modified menus served are presented correctly for our residents.

Attracting top chefs

Our chefs are recruited on the basis of an interview with the regional hospitality support team and the manager for the home. Selection also involves a practical element where potential cooks are asked to cook for and meet a panel of people living in the home. Chefs take their job extremely seriously and our annual Chef competition sees our chefs battle it out in regional heats and then at a national final for the accolade of 'Barchester's Chef of the Year'.

We Serve Food At
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Dietary Options
Vegetarian, Vegan, Pureed, Diabetic.

Activities Are So Important

Our activities team are great at building the activities programme around the likes and interests of the people we care for. Ensuring that our social events offer fun and adventure is part of the ethos of our home; it’s important that those we support can enjoy an active and social lifestyle. Of course, there will always be those who prefer peace and quiet, and in these instances, a cup of tea and a chat are always welcomed.
