Meet The Manager

Monica Boldeata is Home Manager at Colne View.

Working my way from General Nurse through to my newly appointed role as Home Manager at Colne View. Having previously been at Colne View as Deputy Manager, I am looking forward to getting to know the staff and residents once again and the new opportunities that lie ahead.

My favourite part of the day is when I get to chat with residents, relatives and colleagues. I am very passionate about delivering person-centered care, every member of the team brings something different and supporting them to achieve their potential is important to me.

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 Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
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.
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.

Kim Richardson
Senior Customer Relations Manager

It was during this time that I really got to know the residents and became involved with the activities within the home and was subsequently employed as the activities co-ordinator for Colne View, and more recently, customer relations manager.

Prior to joining Care UK, my background has mainly been in the retail sector, although more recently I have been working as a freelance photographer alongside my role as activities co-ordinator.  I am therefore delighted that my role as customer relations manager combines all these roles.

Lifestyle Lead

I’ve been part of the Care UK team since 2019. I was originally at Manor Lodge in Chelmsford but I moved over to join the Colne View team in January 2022.

Before joining Care UK I worked in the retail sector for 26 years. When I felt the need for a change, I was inspired by a friend who was working at Care UK who said it was a great place to work. I already had some experience in planning and organising events, so I thought I would apply for a lifestyle role, and here I am!

There are a lot of skills that come in handy in this role, including patience and positivity, being organised and creative. It’s helpful if you don’t take yourself too seriously too!

Canine Relations Manager

It’s my job to make sure that everyone feels loved. This mainly involves cuddling, visiting and greeting people, and then lying on my back having my tummy rubbed. As you can imagine, it’s pretty exhausting.

I like to start the day with a tour of the home, making sure everyone’s happy and everything’s in place. I might inspect the chews that residents and families have brought me, and greet visitors as they arrive. Then there’ll be a bit of lying down and sleeping.

I like a lap. If I think I’m likely to get a cuddle, I’ll sit on your lap for ages. Colne View is quite a big home, and it’s important that I get around to as many residents as I can each day
