Meet The Manager

Lesley Andrew is General Manager at Signature at Wandsworth Common.

With 40 years’ experience in nursing and social care management, I am delighted to be able to join the Signature at Wandsworth Common team as General Manager. Working as a General Manager and Regional Director for another care provider, I was the first in my organisation to receive an Outstanding rating with the Care Quality Commission. I went on to receive Outstanding ratings for two other homes.

I am delighted to join Signature as their dedication to offering luxury living with exceptional care is a vision shared by me. I am excited about bringing a diverse and inclusive team together that is committed to delivering exceptional care to our residents, welcoming the community into our home and delivering person-centred care in a 5-star setting.

I believe that being part of something so special from the very start is a true privilege and I relish the opportunity to deliver exceptional person-centred care in a ground-breaking environment.

Description

Person-centred care is at the heart of Signature’s ethos. Everyone has unique qualities and our dedicated staff ensure they provide care that is responsive to individual personal preferences, needs and values. There’s always a familiar face here to help at Signature, someone on whom residents can rely for support whenever required.

Carers at Signature know more than names and faces. They know people’s personalities, their priorities and their preferences. This allows them to provide for each resident’s needs while at all times respecting the privacy and dignity of the individual.

Dementia care can be a difficult and emotional decision for residents and their families. At Signature, we are committed to providing the unique and highly skilled care that those living with memory loss require, in order to maintain a fulfilling, safe and dignified lifestyle.

We offer dedicated dementia suites that have specialist features to support with the provision of exceptional care within a dignified and comforting environment for each resident. Using research from the University of Stirling, the UK’s leading dementia specialist researcher, Signature has designed its environments to be market-leading.

Care Services Manager

I have worked for 20 years as a nurse in acute and elderly care. Over the past 10 years I have specialised in elderly care and with people living with dementia. More recently I have worked as a General Manager for another care provider, and was the main driving force behind our home receiving an Outstanding rating from the CQC. I’m passionate about forging links with the local community, for example championing ‘dementia cafes’, which allow people to experience living in a care home.

I chose to join Signature as they offer the highest standard of care as well as providing a luxury yet homely environment. I am excited about being a part of making Wandsworth a place that people can call home, yet where they receive the highest quality person-centred care.

Head of Hotel Services

My background is in hospitality and guest experience, particularly within in the context of care homes. Having worked as Head of Hotel Services with Avery for four years, and within the hotel industry for 15 years, I’m excited to bring my experience to Signature at Wandsworth Common.

I’m committed to nurturing talent in the teams I manage and transforming my colleagues from good to great. I have a track record of driving resident experience and a passion for excellence in all that I do. To illustrate this, in my last role I won CAP (Continuous Advancement Programme) awards for nine of the care homes I managed.

I believe that Signature is the perfect fit for me as I can see how driven they are as a company to excel in the luxury care environment. I have been inspired by the dedication of Signature’s senior management and the interest they have shown in my development.

Having worked for seven years in a similar role for another luxury care provider, I am thrilled to join Signature at Wandsworth Common as a Customer Liaison Manager. I have a track record of success, having taken a challenged home to its highest ever occupancy in my previous role. As a qualified Dementia Champion, I am also committed to helping those living with memory loss, having previously helped set up a regional Dementia Action Alliance with a local church.

Signature are known as the best in terms of quality of care and quality of design, and in these area as well as many others they are always one step ahead of other care providers. This ethos is one I share, and I am delighted to be working for the best provider in the business.

In my role, I am the first point of contact for families seeking care. I am dedicated to using my knowledge and experience to act as a guide and to help families through what can be a difficult time of life.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At Signature, we take great care to ensure that our food is prepared using the highest quality ingredients to ensure a well-balanced and nutritious diet for all our residents. Our food is made by professionally trained chefs and the delicious menus are inspired by Jane Devonshire, MasterChef 2016 winner.

We take pride in producing healthy, appetising food that provides good nutrition and hydration essential to wellness and the physical and mental well-being of our residents. All our meals are freshly prepared, packed full of flavour and include all the seasonal favourites. In addition to our dining times residents can enjoy a range of lighter meals and snacks throughout the day. We have well-stocked cafés serving speciality teas, freshly ground coffee, flavoured water, fruit juices, homemade cakes and light snacks.

Our café areas provide the perfect environment for family visits as well as socialising with other residents and guests. We make sure that we cater to individual dietary needs and recognise personal preferences and we do all we can to ensure that our residents enjoy their dining experience with Signature. Our homes are fully licensed and stock a great selection of wines, beers and spirits for residents, their guests and visitors to enjoy.

Across all Signature homes we offer choice and variety so that residents fully enjoy their dining experience. Whether you prefer a formal or informal environment, you can choose from a range of options including the formal restaurant areas that offer silver service, informal bistros for a more casual dining experience, café areas near the main entrances for coffee, light bites and snacks. Each home has a private dining room so that residents can enjoy special occasions with family and friends. We even offer alfresco dining on our pretty sun terraces for those long lazy summer days.

Our chefs offer fresh, seasonal menus that change daily for lunch and dinner. Each menu lists all allergies and we cater for all dietary requirements. Whether it be vegetarian, pescatarian or even vegan, at Signature we go above and beyond to make sure our residents’ tastes and needs are met, and they are well looked after. When a new resident joins a Signature home, we make every effort to learn what the resident likes and do all that we can to meet their tastes and preferences.

Every Signature home offers a stylish private dining facility for residents to enjoy with their family and friends. Celebrating happy times, such as birthdays or anniversaries is a lovely way to enjoy the facilities. By request, a special menu can be designed by our head chefs and all our homes are fully licensed offering a great wine list to add to the occasion.

Activities Are So Important

Every signature home has a dedicated activities team organised by an activities manager. With extensive weekly activity calendars, there is always plenty to choose from, whatever a resident’s mobility level. Activities inside our homes include ballroom dancing, board games, guest musicians and speakers and of course our ever-popular bridge tournaments. We also organise regular outings, from theatre and cinema trips to nature walks, shopping trips and church services. Many of our homes also have gardening areas and potting sheds, where green-fingered residents can tend their own plot.

The wellbeing of our residents is always our main concern, and Signature life is designed to provide a full spectrum of physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Regular exercise classes for all abilities, physiotherapy treatments in our specialist therapy rooms, and country trips are just some of the activities by which Signature maintains physical wellbeing. Stimulating activities such as crossword challenges, quiz nights and foreign language classes offer a great range of options for mental wellbeing. The sense of community and companionship offered by all of our social areas and communal activities offers emotional wellbeing that would not usually be available outside the Signature family.
