Meet The Manager

Juila Chapman-Wright is The Home Manager at Brooklands Care Home.

Julia has been a registered nurse for over 30 years after completing training at the Royal London Hospital. She made the move to Norfolk in 2000 with her husband and young daughter, and in 2008 transferred from the NHS to the care home sector. It is here she began working at Brooklands and has never looked back since!

Julia says: “Being manager of Brooklands Care Home is never dull! I get to work with a fabulous team of caring and compassionate people and am really proud of what we offer to our residents and families. The fact that I can still nurse in my job is also hugely important to me as it’s something I’ve been doing since I was 18.”

In fact, so extensive is Julia’s nursing experience, she is the Clinical Lead responsible for supporting all nurses across our award-winning group of care homes.

When it comes to delivering exceptional care with love and a deep sense of compassion, the amazing people who form our Brooklands team, in Drayton, Norwich, are everything.

Here at Brooklands Care Home, we will care for your precious loved one with the same tenderness and kindness shown to our own family members.

Through a reassuring touch of the hand or a light embrace, we provide comfort and a sense of safety day and night, caring for our cherished residents whilst giving gentle encouragement to build confidence and independence wherever possible.

To us, these things are second nature, assisted by our detailed knowledge of each person we care for and born by an intense desire to help and strong caring values amongst our team members.

The depth of our knowledge goes way beyond our training and awareness of each person’s medical and physical needs. Whilst these are crucial elements to ensure we are able to provide good care, it is our detailed understanding of who each special individual is now, who they were, and what hopes and dreams they have for their future that enables us to provide exceptional care.

Activities Are So Important

Our residents’ ongoing health and wellbeing is extremely important to us and we recognise that keeping active, both mentally and physically, whilst maintaining a sense of purpose and meaning are key to individuals’ happiness, contentment and joy.

In partnership with our residents and those closest to them, our dedicated lifestyle team develops a varied programme of meaningful activities, events and celebrations which are personalised to individuals’ likes, dislikes, abilities and care needs as well as aspirations and dreams for the future.

This can range from joining our groups including book club, sewing and knitting club cinema club and swimming club, which takes place at the local Mann Green Country Park. We hold regular pamper sessions and exercise classes within our home including Zumba, dancing, yoga and Thai Chi.

There are always games on the go for our residents to take part in, whether it’s carpet boules, musical bingo or a quiz. We also arrange for a variety of entertainers to visit Brooklands including singers, magicians, impressionists, therapy animals, ballroom dancers and belly dancers – safe to say, there is never a dull moment here!

Our whole team supports our residents to rekindle interests and hobbies, whilst also gently encouraging them to try new things they might enjoy, either as part of a group of friends, on a 1-2-1 basis and in their own room, if they prefer.
