Meet The Manager

Graham Allen is Senior General Manager at Worplesdon View.

Hi, my name is Graham Allen and I am the Senior General Manager here at the Worplesdon View.

Worplesdon View is a purpose-built 78-bed home offering nursing and residential care, as well as personalised dementia care in one of Barchester’s Memory Lane Communities. Our highly qualified and dedicated team work hard to ensure the highest quality of care, based on the latest research and tailored to each individual’s needs.

The whole home has been designed with older people in mind, from the sofas and chairs in the living rooms, spacious and en-suite bedrooms, to the well-tended and secure gardens. Residents all have access to a sociable coffee area, hair salon and a beautifully-maintained garden. Throughout the home there is a range of communal and dining facilities to suit people who enjoy socialising, as well as those who prefer quieter activities.

It also features life skills kitchens where residents can be involved in everyday kitchen activities such as baking and setting the table under supervision and guidance.

Activities Coordinator

Hello, my name is Fernanda Gomes and I’m the Activities Coordinator here at Worplesdon View.

Since 2016, I have been part of this wonderful team, starting as a Hostess before moving on to Care Assistant, and finally to Activities Coordinator.

I have always been fond of talking and engaging with residents, knowing more about them and trying to understand them, as well as their loved ones. It gives me great pleasure knowing that I have put a smile on each of their faces.

There has never never a dull moment from the first day I started, which makes this job even more exciting, not knowing what to expect.

Head Chef

My name is Kathleen and I am the Head Chef here at Worplesdon View. I have worked as a chef in the care industry for over 25 years now and have always enjoyed working in this sector.

I enjoy cooking two roast dinners a week, hotpots and make fish and chips every Friday. I also make classic puddings, including crumbles, bread and butter pudding, trifles and victoria sandwiches, which the residents enjoy. 

I enjoy working at Worplesdon View, as all the staff are friendly, helpful and is a great team to be a part of.
