Meet The Manager

Christine Hutchinson is Home Manager at Dene Holm.

"I am the General Manager of two homes, Dene Holm in Northfleet and Edward Moore House in Gravesend. I have worked for the company for almost twenty years, having worked my up through the company from a carer at Edward Moore House, to senior carer, care coordinator, interim manager at Dene Holm and then finally since May 2016, general manager.

"I never thought this would be the career for me but since starting, I have never looked back or regretted the choices I have made. I love the fact that I get to have an input into making so many people’s lives that little bit more enjoyable.

"I pride myself on the fact that both the homes are very caring and homely and I am proud to be in the position I am."

Christine Hutchinson

An established and popular residential care home located in a residential area of Northfleet, Dene Holm offers an inviting and homely setting for older people looking for a high level of care, within in a welcoming environment.

Here at Dene Holm, our friendly cat roams the corridors and our ethos of delivering compassion and companionship in all that we do, is well and truly alive. Our lovely residents and team of long serving staff interact just like a real family and visitors drop in any time for a cup of tea, or to join an activity.

Our creative staff have invested a great deal in transforming the residents’ home into an inspiring environment. What were once standard corridors, are now stimulating interest areas featuring scenes to see and touch, with cosy nooks and seating areas.

Our lounge and bar area offers a bright and airy space to relax with a book, or meet a friend for a game of pool. There is also a working bar for birthday parties and special events. The home also has homely dining rooms and a large garden with a decked area, which is often utilised in the summer.

Dene Holm is split into three wings, supporting residents with lower support needs through to those who have advanced dementia and require 24-hour assistance. To chat to our approachable and experienced team about our care, give us a call or pop in for a cup of tea.

Description

Dene Holm has two distinct floors with capacity for 22 residents on the ground floor and 22 on first floor.

Whilst the actual level of personal care each resident receives will depend on their individual needs, our usual staffing levels on each shift are seven assuming that each is fully occupied, during the day are:

One experienced senior care staff who has achieved, or are working towards, their level 5 award in Health and Social Care and seven care assistants, either who have achieved their level 2 in Health and Social Care, or who have, or are working to achieve, a Care Certificate. During the night there are four care assistants working on each shift, plus one lead night care assistant working on each shift. Residents can choose whether to have a male or female carer for their personal care needs and where possible we will accommodate their wishes, however there may be times when a male carer is not available. In this case we will always ensure we let the resident know well in advance of their care being provided.

The home also has a dedicated social activities facilitator who organises internal and external activities for our residents to enjoy.

In addition, we have a general manager and a deputy manager who, together with the home administrator, comprise the home’s management team.

Activities Are So Important

Our full-time activity coordinator works with residents to organise a varied and stimulating calendar of activities and events, as well as supporting residents to continue with their own hobbies and interests.

Daily activities vary but can include gentle exercise classes, games afternoons, crafts, flower arranging and reminiscence to name a few. Connected to the local commdunity, we have established some valuable relationships with local groups such as Brownies and school children, who often visit our residents.

When the weather is kind, our residents enjoy garden parties and barbecues, as well as taking trips to the coast and attending annual events such as the Herne Bay Air Show and Fort in the Forties, the local nostalgic festival. 

Our visiting hours are unrestricted; thus, guests are welcome to drop in and join us for an activity or cup of tea, we believe this contributes to our welcoming family atmosphere.
