Meet The Manager

Heather James is General Manager at Blossomfield Grange.

I qualified as a registered nurse and spent the early part of my career working in the NHS. I graduated from Birmingham University with an Msc in Health Care Policy and Management. I have worked as an NHS Modern Matron, managed multiple sites and worked as General Manager for Community Services in Birmingham. I made the transition to the private sector in 2014 and I am delighted to now be working at Blossomfield Grange as General Manager as it gives me the opportunity to lead a team delivering excellent, quality care to some very special individuals. The team and I are committed to hard work and dedication in order to serve the residents and ensure that the community represents caring and compassionate care within a beautiful environment at Blossomfield Grange.

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 Air Filtration & Purification We are using air filtration and/or air purification devices within our care setting.
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

We are offering visits in our Covid-safe visiting suites.

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.

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.

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.
