Meet The Manager

Alison Parry is Home Manager at Millers Grange.

I have three decades’ experience of working in the care home sector, and 17 of those have been as a Registered Manager for care companies of all sizes. This is the first time I’ve worked for Care UK, and I was keen to join the organisation because its commitment to quality care and its ethos of care match my own. I’m passionate about enabling residents to enjoy rewarding and meaningful lives.

I love the hustle and bustle of mid-morning, when residents are up and involved in activities and are chatting together. It’s refreshing to leave the office to talk to my team and residents. I enjoy finding ways to engage residents in things that make them happy. 

I’m excited to be leading a dynamic team in a new home. I have lots of ideas of ways to make Millers Grange one of Oxfordshire’s best care homes, and I’m looking forward to making them happen.

I was delighted to join Care UK September 2019. Care UK is one of the leading residential care providers and they have an exciting vision of what older people’s care should be. I’d been working in the care sector for two years prior to joining the home, doing a similar role to this one, and when I saw this opportunity, I jumped at it. Before working in older people’s care, I ran my own childcare setting for 17 years.

There’s always so much to keep me busy and challenged. I have just moved over to Millers Grange from another Care UK home and I am looking forward to building relationships with the local community, and with residents and their families, and creating a setting that people will be proud to call ‘home’.

Lifestyle Coordinator

I joined Care UK and Millers Grange because I wanted to work for an organisation that would enable me to use my skills and extend my experience and knowledge. I wholeheartedly support the Care UK values of creating meaningful lifestyles for residents, and I love being able to support residents to live their best life. Residents are central to everything we do here at Millers Grange.

I’m a qualified personal trainer and am passionate about the importance of physical activity at all stages of life. I have specialist exercise qualifications in exercise for older people and people living with common medical conditions, and I used to run exercise and relaxation classes at the Elms Health and Wellbeing Centre in Witney.

I have spent most of my working career in hotels, restaurants, and heritage sites, so this is my first venture into working in the care environment. This is whole new challenge to me and after speaking to various people within the company I was absolutely sold on the idea of providing great food, great hospitality and great care.

A massive thing for me is understanding and knowing what residents want, spending time with each individual and having the freedom to express myself.

With Care UK having over 100 sites I am determined for Millers Grange to stand out.

Outside of work I love my spending time with baby daughter, watching football and of course eating out at as many places possible.

Activities Are So Important

Here in our Witney care home, we believe that life is for living – to the full. So when your loved one joins us at Millers Grange we work hard to find out all about their life history, interests and wishes, then we support them to live life in the way they wish.

Whether your loved one prefers one-to-one or small group activities, helping around the home or being in their own company, we will ensure that they enjoy a meaningful and fulfilling lifestyle.

Our Lifestyle team organises a weekly programme of activities, events, outings and entertainment, from live music to exercise sessions, film afternoons (complete with freshly popped corn), pamper sessions, knitting, reminiscence sessions, art classes and baking.

Nothing beats a good chat, and at 3pm each day colleagues ‘down tools’ to get together with residents for tea, cake and a catch up. ‘Boys’ lunches’ and ‘Ladies’ afternoon teas’ are also regular diary dates, all hosted by our senior managers.
