Meet The Manager

Anne Mary Gaffney is General Manager at Blossomfield Grange.

My background is in nursing - I started out working in the community and became a District Nurse. Later on, I moved into the private sector and worked in care homes, and I’m an experienced Home Manager.

I was keen to join Care UK because it has clear and strong values, and a superb reputation for delivering high quality care. I’m passionate about ensuring every resident receives care that enables them to live a fulfilling life.

Quality is a huge focus for me, so myself and the fantastic team here at Blossomfield Grange will continue to work to enhance the quality of everything we do so that we’re recognised as the care home of choice in Solihull and the West Midlands.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

What we're doing to keep residents & visitors safe

Visitors must be double vaccinated, unless they are medically exempt, and return a negative test. Residents may leave care homes, that are free of any Covid outbreak, to visit or stay overnight with family or a friend, or go on walks in places such as parks, public gardens and beaches without the need to isolate on their return. A negative test result will only be required on return if there has been close contact with a suspected or confirmed case of Covid-19. We are also offering visits in our Covid-safe visiting suites as well as window and drive-up visits for all homes, including those with Covid outbreaks, where we have the support of local public health teams. Nominated essential care givers can offer residents additional support during visits. Essential care givers can continue to visit when a home is in outbreak.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Independent Assessments We have been independently assessed in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
safe-tick Regulatory Assessment We have been assessed by the care regulator in our approach to infection control.
safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

All Care UK homes now have purpose-built internal or external visiting suites available which enable visits to take place from behind a sealed glass panel, using a sound system to assist with communication. Where Government guidance and local health teams allow, these suites make it possible to continue visiting even when we have a case of Covid-19 in the home.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Wireless Internet access (WiFi)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s rooms.

Telephone for external calling

Yes, our care home provides a telephone in all our resident’s rooms.

Social media provides an up to date window on the activities within a provider's setting.

With the restrictions on visiting during the pandemic, social media platforms such as these offer real insight when you are choosing a provider.

Deputy Manager

Since coming here in 2006 I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of roles starting as a Care Assistant and progressed to Deputy Manager. Whilst here I qualified as a nurse and I knew in my heart that this is where I belonged as I felt part of a family here at Blossomfield Grange. Working here gives me the opportunity to work alongside such caring and professional colleagues and such amazing residents. I am proud to be a part of such a prestigious organisation and I take pride in ensuring the residents receive quality care every day. Our mission to champion the quality of Life for all residents remains a central point in my heart.

Jo Hopkins
Jo Hopkins
Director of Community Relations

My role within Blossomfield Grange is to help and support families who are looking into care and a new home for their loved ones. This can be an upsetting time for all involved and may be a whole world they may never have explored before, so it is absolutely essential that we listen and capture the needs and individuality of the new potential resident, whilst also offering the family reassurance and trust. The end result seeing their loved one move in, settle and be happy and the positive impact this has on the whole family is extremely rewarding. It's a real privilege to be a part of the team at Blossomfield Grange and getting to know all the wonderful residents.

I started work in another one of our communities, Metchley Manor, in various roles. In 2014 I moved here as Activities Lead Coordinator. I am a qualified florist with a love of gardening and flowers and have taken a keen interest in the beautiful gardens we enjoy here at Blossomfield Grange, starting a hugely popular gardening club. I thoroughly enjoy getting to know the residents, their individual likes and dislikes, as well as the interesting lives many of them have led.

Carole Hobbs

Business Office Coordinator

I’ve worked in office administration in different care homes for many years. I enjoy doing admin work in a care setting. There’s always a lot to do, so it’s important to have good time management skills, the ability to juggle different tasks, to remain calm under pressure, and to have a good attention to detail.

Empathy is important too when you’re supporting older people and their families. I love helping the residents and their families with any queries they have. It’s a pleasure to do whatever I can for them and it makes every day different.
