Meet The Manager

Rohan Mathew is Home Manager at Buchanan Court.

Before joining Care UK in 2018 I spent ten years working in the UK and overseas in different nursing roles, including in cardiac and orthopaedic settings. A friend of mine who worked for Care UK recommended the organisation for its commitment to quality care, and for how it supports colleagues to develop and progress.

What’s special about working in a care home as opposed to a hospital setting is the opportunity to truly get to know the people you’re caring for. I’m also passionate about supporting the team, and growing their confidence so they provide the best service.

Buchanan Court is full of energy and the teamwork here is outstanding. I’m so proud of how colleagues treat residents with the utmost respect and dignity, and involve them in outings, activities and special celebrations. I’m proud to be part of the Buchanan Court family.

Inside our 80-bedroom care home there’s lots going on. There are residents being pampered in the hair and beauty salon, or enjoying a classic film in the cinema. Buchanan Court has its own café too, with fresh tea and coffee and homemade cakes. There’s socially distanced activities such as exercise classes and games, and of course we all love relaxing in the beautiful garden when the weather’s nice too. 

When your loved one first joins us, we’ll work with them, and you, to learn everything we can about them. We’ll then create care and activity plans, as well as menus, that are tailored to their unique needs and personality.

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.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Contact Tracing We have measures in place to identify and trace contact between people in our care setting.
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.

More details coming soon

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.

My time with Care UK goes back to 2000! I began as a care assistant but I worked my way up. I’ve actually worked in health or social care all my career – in fact, all my family work in related fields.

At Care UK I’ve helped to refurbish a care home, I’ve held a Dining for Dementia auction for charity – there are always opportunities to get involved that you could never predict. I work with a great team here at Buchanan Court and I’m really enjoying supporting them, as well as the families who come to us looking for great care.

I’m passionate about cooking delicious food that will put a smile on residents’ faces, and that’s why I joined Care UK. It’s a leading care company in the UK and passionate about supporting older people.

I’m an experienced care sector catering manager and have achieved an outstanding five star rating from the CQC for all of the organisations that I’ve worked in. I’m committed to delivering excellent service and love getting feedback from residents. If they have enjoyed what we’ve created, I’m happy.

I was working in accounting before I moved to Buchanan Court in 2017. I really wanted to work with older people, supporting them and their families, and to develop my skills in a large organisation. Care UK is a very good company to work for, and rewards dedication and talent. 

There’s always something happening at Buchanan Court: no two days are the same. I joined the home and the team when it was brand new, which was exciting and challenging in equal measure! It’s interesting and rewarding to see the home develop and to see residents truly settling in and making the home their own. It’s lovely to see. Buchanan Court is a happy home, and I’m very proud to work here, using my skills to support families and older people.

I joined the Buchanan Court team in March 2019 because Care UK is known for the great care it offers and how it supports its colleagues to progress professionally. I was actually working as a Casino Manager before I worked here, but I have also worked in housekeeping in roles prior to that.

It’s been a huge boost for me to reach management level and to be overseeing a team, and I love the time I get to spend interacting with residents. Doing whatever I can to help them gives me huge pleasure. It’s wonderful to see them happy and I’m looking forward to seeing them blossom further, and developing great relationships with them.
