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.

Our Team
Rohan Matthew
Rohan Matthew
Deputy Manager and Control Champion

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.

Here at Buchanan Court I'm also the Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) Champion. In essence, my role involves establishing and maintaining a high standard of hygiene and cleanliness so that residents, colleagues and visitors are kept safe. I provide infection control training and am on hand to support our team to work to the highest standards.

Customer Relations Manager

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.

Lifestyle Coordinator

I joined Care UK because it’s a national leader in the care sector and an organisation that’s passionate about delivering the best of care. It uses the latest thinking and the best resources to provide superb care. 

I love spending time with residents, having a chat with them one-to-one, getting to know them and seeing them engaged in activities they enjoy. I love baking and cooking and going on trips myself, and these are things I enjoy doing with the residents here. There’s so much the people we care for can still do and give – my aim is to help them to do that and enjoy a meaningful life.

Head Chef

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.

Head Housekeeper

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.

Business Administrator

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. 

Joanne Barns
Joanne Barns
Home Ambassador

I was the first resident at Buchanan Court – I moved in on 28th November 2017. I enjoy helping others, and, during my working life, I’ve had roles where I focused on customers’ needs. I’ve worked in pubs and management roles, so when I was approached to be home ambassador at Buchanan Court, it was another opportunity to help people.

As home ambassador, I’m the voice of the home’s residents, so I listen and talk to other residents and help them in any way I can. I chair the regular residents’ and relatives’ meetings, and I run the shop here in the home.

I enjoy socialising with my family and friends, who visit me throughout the week. We sit and chat in the coffee shop or in the cinema room. I’m also an active member of the Friends of Buchanan group.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our chef-led team understands the importance of nutrition and hydration to health and wellbeing in later life. Despite social distancing, meal times at Montfort Manor are a social occasion. Residents enjoy getting together in our attractive dining rooms. Alternatively, in-room dining is available if your loved one would prefer, or need, additional distancing. Our catering team uses fresh ingredients to create delicious and nutritious hot and cold menu choices, all tailored to your loved one’s personal tastes, diet and cultural needs. Snacks and drinks are available day and night, and every resident is treated to a home-baked birthday cake – of a flavour of their choosing, of course.
