Meet The Manager

Raymond Arnold is Home Manager at Ancasta Grove.

I’m an experienced home manager passionate about delivering care, particularly for residents who are living with dementia. Care UK is a market leader in health and social care. They’re ahead of the curve and the whole team here is passionate about providing the best care.

I like the fact that every day is different in this role. It’s important to be flexible as you can never be sure what the day will bring. I’m really excited about having the opportunity to shape a new service and set the standard in a home from the start.

Respite Care Yes

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 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 Regulatory Assessment We have been assessed by the care regulator in our approach to infection control.
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”)

Our care home has mobile phone signal in some of our residents’ 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.

Hayley Gibbons
Deputy Manager

I started working in the healthcare industry 30 years ago and I decided to return to education and graduated from Oxford Brookes University as a registered nurse in 2005. I then joined the NHS and worked in various areas of nursing, before accepting a role as a Deputy Manager in a care home and I’ve not looked back since!

I joined Care UK because I was amazed at how beautiful all the homes are. The team are all so kind and supportive which makes me feel part of one big family.

My role requires good people skills and the ability to communicate effectively. Having the knowledge and experience to fulfil the role and taking initiative in any situations. I enjoy leading a diverse team and supporting them in anything they need. I also love spending time with residents, making sure they are happy and helping with any questions.

Customer Relations Manager

I’m an experienced customer relations manager, having worked for other care providers. During my time in the care sector I’ve kept meeting people who recommended Care UK and its ethos, so when I was ready for a new challenge, I thought I’d investigate!

Mine is a very varied role – you need to liaise with a wide range of people, from relatives and prospective residents to healthcare professionals and people in the community. Having empathy is a must because I support families who are looking for a fantastic home for an older loved one. It’s an emotional and stressful time for them so it’s vital to have an understanding of what they’re going through.

Head Chef

After three years’ culinary school training to become a qualified chef, I worked at a four-star hotel in Southampton for ten year before taking the decision to try something new and join Care UK as Head Chef when the home opened in 2021.

I love cooking and I am so passionate about food. To run a smooth kitchen, you need to be well organised and have good people skills for communication. My favourite part of the day is the preparation before serving the food to people and seeing how much they enjoy it. It can be very busy but I love the rush. Ancasta Grove allows me to work with lovely fresh ingredients producing delicious meals for residents, and have a great-work life balance.

Business Administrator

I previously worked in administration within a care home where I realised how much I enjoy being in a residential environment. Not only do I love the administration work but also being around residents and their families.

This role requires good interpersonal skills and the ability to organise and record accurate data. Prioritising busy workloads is very important as it covers so many areas. Staying on top of all duties like resident billing, data, staff hours and wages can be a challenge.

Caring for others and working as a team allows everyone in the home to play their part and become a family.

Richard Hazelgrove
Lifestyle Coordinator

I was an activity team leader for two years and I have run my own companies for over thirty years. I also have worked in engineering, business and professionally trained as an actor, and directed several shows.

I love being part of the Ancasta team and taking on new challenges and fun opportunities. Most importantly my role requires excellent communication from myself to the people we provide care for, great imagination and the ability to think outside of the box. The lifestyle and activities need to be tailored to residents abilities and interests so everyone can take part and have fun.
