Meet The Manager

Roda Williams is Home manager at Montfort Manor.

The team and I consider it a huge privilege to care for older people and are proud that their families trust us to care for them.

This is a lovely friendly and happy home, with a great family atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you here soon.

At Montfort Manor every thought has been given to residents' health, safety and wellbeing. The home is divided into small suites to enable residents - particularly those who are living with dementia - to make friends and feel calm and secure in a homelike environment.

Montfort Manor has its own inviting café – complete with fresh cakes baked by our chef-led kitchen team – plus a luxurious cinema, a bar, and a hair and beauty salon. There's something to do whatever the weather, and our Lifestyle team plans daily activities. Residents are encouraged to socialise within small, socially distanced groups so they can do as much or as little as they wish: they can lead an activity, help around the home or simply relax in the comfort of their bedroom.

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 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 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.

Nicola Young
Customer Relations Manager

I started here at Montfort Manor in July 2020 in the middle of a very challenging time due to the coronavirus pandemic, but what a way to learn in the deep end! I was attracted to Montfort Manor as I felt that their ideals of care were in line with my own care belief. I want my relatives to be looked after the way I want to be looked after. Before my role as customer relations manager I have worked for a call centre, worked for a bespoke medical bed company and was a Personal Independence Co-ordinator for Age UK. I believe that a customer relations manager is a listening ear and someone to empathise with what both the family and loved one are going through. My mother in law had early onset dementia at the age of 56 and she was in a home for nearly 10 years. And my grandmother was in a home after her care needs became too much for us as a family for seven years.

Deputy Clinical Manager

I qualified as a nurse in 1980 and I also have a degree in health and social care which I gained in my fifties – something I’m very proud of. My experience spans nursing in operating theatres as well as in dementia care. I also worked as a clinical service manager for two 111 contracts.

I was thrilled to join the team at Montfort Manor, as it’s a fantastic opportunity to set up a new home – setting high standards right from the start. I can play a key part in shaping how the home is run, and its ethos of care, which is all about putting the resident at the heart of everything.

Head Chef

I’m an experienced care home head chef, and I’ve also worked as a Chef de Partie at the Ashford International Hotel. I joined the Montfort Manor team in September 2019 because I was excited about working in a brand new home with big ideas, where the team is determined to deliver the best possible care.

I love using food to ensure residents feel great and look forward to every meal. It’s fantastic to see people enjoying the dishes we’ve created for them. I’m passionate about listening to residents’ feedback so that I can continue to adapt the food we serve to provide them with meals that make them happy. I’m always looking to improve.

Maintenance

I regularly drove past Montfort Manor as it was being built. I saw it take shape into a beautiful building and it made me want to be a part of this new care home, where I could make a difference to older people’s lives.

I’ve spent nearly five years as Head of Maintenance at a local care home, so I understand what’s important in this role, and I enjoy being able to turn my hand to anything. One minute I might be fixing a leak, the next I’ll be changing a bulb. I love whatever the day brings, whether I’m supporting residents with gardening, or helping to get a new resident’s bedroom just the way they want it. I also love chatting to residents and their families.

Head Housekeeper

I’ve worked in care home settings for over 12 years. I wanted to join Care UK because it has strong values, which echo my own. I joined the Montfort Manor team in September 2019 and I’m over the moon to be working with such a great team of people. We’re all working towards the same goals.

I love those moments when you can spend quality time with the residents, when you can get to know them like you would members of your own family. Everyone who works at Montford Manor has the residents at heart. Whatever role we do here, each of us is focused on ensuring that residents receive the quality care they need and deserve.
