I qualified as RMN in September 2014, working in inpatient mental health services for older adults for 3 years as my first staff nurse position. Now working at Baycroft, as I wanted to move away from inpatient services and have more direct input in people’s care and be more “hands on” as well as continue my clinical skills being a nurse involves.

I have worked in care and health services for nearly 10 years since starting work as a carer at age 16. I honestly love my job and don’t see it that way, it is another home away from home - I do what I love best = care.

I am very lucky to be given this opportunity to be working in a such a lovely home and with the support of my wonderful new family here at Baycroft

Hello my name is Christopher, Head Chef to this beautiful care home Baycroft in Great Baddow

I started my career straight away after leaving school in 1991, working in various prestigious establishments.

In 2001 I decided to return to college and study patisserie. I worked in a few famous establishments including Harrods, where I received 'The Chairmans Award For Excellence' during my role as head of pastry in the Georgian restaurant.

I founded my own company in 2007 that supplied high-quality desserts and gateaux across central Essex. I won the award of 'New Small Business' from the 'Mid Essex Business Awards' in 2009.

I left my patisserie in 2014 to spend more time with my 3 children. I am now with Baycroft to continue producing a standard of excellence.

Adam Broadway – Sous Chef

My love of food began at a young age, my Mother is a caterer and watching her in the kitchen inspired me.

My career began working as a Commis Chef at a Bar/Restaurant in Leigh on Sea, working my way up to Chef de Partie. It was here, the Head Chef, previously of Harvey Nichols, taught me my creative passion.

I then moved to a Golf and Country Club catering for Weddings whilst serving the bars and restaurant. Here I was lucky to work with a Head Chef formerly awarded a Red M in the Michelin Guide. He educated me to be inspired and excited by the prospect of food and its multitude of possibilities.

Baycroft allow me to be creative, I am excited to deliver restaurant standard food, using locally sourced produce, meeting with our residents to ensure their needs are always met.

Colin Mace
Colin Mace
Kitchen Assistant

The one constant thing during my working life is that I have always worked in environments working with and looking after people.

 I originally trained as a Cook in the Royal Navy, then worked in retail for a few years before embarking on a 22 year career in the Civil Service. I am now supposedly semi-retired since 2013 and for the last few years I have been trying to find something where I can combine both my catering training and my love of social interaction with people.

Whilst I'm employed in the Kitchen I get to spend a lot of time with our residents and their families and during this interaction my light-hearted and humorous side comes to fore. I try to balance serious conversation and stimulation with humour and for me there is no greater satisfaction than talking to people and not only hearing and listening to what they have to say but to also hear them laugh and see them smile.
