Meet The Manager

Clare Twiss is General Manager at Baycroft Kempston.

I’ve always worked in a care-providing role. I’m a registered nurse, and have been for 24 years. I’ve worked in later-life care for ten years, and five years before that with young adults with special needs.

I love the idea of being involved in the earliest stages of a new Baycroft residence. I couldn’t miss the chance of being able to build a bespoke service, and a home that’s really unique.

I think the best part of Baycroft is the emphasis that we put on individuals – we really want to be a positive part of people’s lives. We can create a home away from home, a place where our residents can feel independent even while being supported.

Baycroft Kempston is a superb luxury home conveniently located between Kempston and Wood End in Bedfordshire. Here, in this purpose-built setting with its tranquil landscaped gardens, our residents can rely on expert 24-hour personalised residential, nursing and dementia care.

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

We pride ourselves on the highest standard of care and infection control. Like every care home should, we follow the strict guidance of the CQC and with the current pandemic we are following any new guidance given to us from the Government and our Local Authority and we update our policies daily on this. 

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 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 Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

We are lucky enough to offer our beautiful library as a COVID safe area to visit your loved ones in this difficult time.

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.

Joined 2019

I joined Baycroft in October 2019 and have since seen our family grow. Through thick and thin our home has remained a safe, nurturing and positive place for our staff and residents. Each and every person working in our home is dedicated to offering the highest standard of care and service in the industry. 

Getting to know all of my residents and their families through my first year has been a real privilege. I thrive to support not only our new residents on their move in but their families as well. Moving into a care home full time can be a anxious and scary but our roles here are to make all of our residents feel at ease whilst still remaining as independent as possible.

Activities Are So Important

Each week, there will be a comprehensive, varied and engaging activities schedule arranged by a dedicated coordinator who will liaise with you to ensure your individual needs are being met.

Bedfordshire has so many fantastic possibilities for a day out. There’s Woburn Safari Park, the Shuttleworth museum, and Whipsnade Zoo. We’re also close to Bletchley Park, which is only 20 minutes away from us and I’m sure will be interesting for many of our residents.
