Meet The Manager

Naomi Butcher is Home Manager at Chichester Grange.

My favourite part of my working day is in the morning when I catch up with everyone. As we’re a brand-new care home, I’m looking forward to working with this new team and getting the residents settled into their new home.

I was delighted to have been asked to speak in the House of Lords about social care. Outside of work I enjoy helping to raise money for charity.

Naomi Butcher

Chichester Grange – Care UK's new care home in Chichester opened in December 2021, providing quality care for older people in a luxurious setting. Here, the experienced and committed team delivers the best in permanent and short-term residential, nursing and specialist dementia care.

Like in all Care UK homes, the care they provide is fully tailored to the individual needs, interests, and preferences of each person they care for. They call this person-centred care. They are also passionate about ensuring that residents and their families are fully involved in decisions around their care. That way, residents feel in control, and receive the care they need in the way they wish.

Knowing and understanding your loved one is central to delivering person-centred care. They will find out all they can about your loved one, with their help and yours, and capture it all in a life history book. This will become their reference point for organising activities, outings and experiences your loved one will adore, so that they can enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle and maintain their independence.

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 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-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)

Our care home has WiFi in some of our residents’ rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

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

Telephone for external calling

No, our care home does not provide a telephone in residents’ 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.

Emma Lipscombe
Deputy Manager

I wanted to join the team at Chichester Grange as it’s a new home offering a new adventure and opportunities. I am looking forward to working with the team and getting to know residents.

Having previously worked as a Deputy Manager for another care home, I love getting to know the residents and making them and their families feel at home. To be a successful Deputy Manager you need to be a good listener, be caring, knowledgeable and approachable.

My biggest career highlight so far has been developing to become a Deputy Manager by completing all the courses and having the belief in myself that people can come to me for support.

Caroline Thomas
Caroline Thomas
Customer Relations Manager

I used to work in corporate sales and marketing, however, when I took a year off to care for an older relative, the experience put me onto a new path. I decided to bring my skills and experience to Care UK so that I could help families at a time when they really need help and support. 

One of the biggest challenges for me in making a career change was educating myself about dementia. There’s so much to understand about it and the different forms it takes, and how to help people to live well with dementia. I’ve loved it though – I’d say making the move to care has been the highlight of my career – and I really enjoy any chance I have to chat to the residents and learn more about them.

A large part of my role is showing families around the home, and it’s got to be my favourite part of what I do. Chichester Grange is a brand-new home, with a very friendly family atmosphere and we’re all very proud of it.

Head Chef

I joined the Chichester Grange team in 2021, having previously worked as a Head Chef at another care home. I wanted to join Care UK as I would like to make a difference in dementia care through food and I’m looking forward to making a difference here and progressing within the company. 

Moving from restaurants to care has been a challenge, but since making the transition, I’ve developed a real interest in creating meals for special diets using my level 3 training in high nutrition for healthy foods and special diets.

Working as the Head Chef, you need to be a good mentor and be able to listen as well as teach. You need to be able to cook food to a high standard and I believe you need to take pride in what you do. The best part of my job is seeing residents sit down to their meal – if I can bring a smile to a face through food, that’s a good day.

Business Administrator

I’m very excited about working in the Business Administrator role as it’s a combination of my previous roles, and it means I can return to the care sector. I’m also looking forward to supporting the Home Manager in helping to look after new and current colleagues which I was proud of doing in my previous job.

To be a successful Business Administrator I believe you need to be organised, flexible and be a good people person. You also need to enjoy working with policies and procedures and like process driven tasks.

In my spare time I am a treasurer of my local football club, Chichester and Selsey Ladies Football Club. My partner, daughter, and stepson all play, coach or manage for football teams so I enjoy watching and supporting them.

Gabriele Palosanu
Gabriele Palosanu
Head Housekeeper

I wanted to join Care UK as I saw this as a huge opportunity to work in a higher position and I love how the company puts the residents at the heart of everything. Before joining the team here at Chichester Grange, I previously worked as a laundry assistant, a housekeeper supervisor and in accounting.

To do well in this role you need to be good at planning and be organised. You also need to be hard working, have a good attention to detail and work well in a team. The best part of my working day is meeting with my team to discuss our goals and thoughts. I also like the end of the day when everything is done, the home is nice and tidy, and our high standards are met.

Outside of work I enjoy walking, reading, and spending time with my family.

Richard Quilligan
Richard Quilligan
Team Leader

Working as a Team Leader you need to have empathy, be a good listener and have a passion for looking after people. One of my favourite parts of my job is in the morning when residents are up and about, and I can have a chat with them.

I wanted to join Care UK as I had heard about the good career progression within the company. Before I joined the team here at Chichester Grange I worked as a carer in a local nursing home. I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to build a team so that together we can provide excellent care to the residents.

In my career I’m proud to have achieved an NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social care and I hope I can continue to progress further. Outside of work I enjoy watching football, rugby, and golf.

Christine Kiley
Christine Kiley
Team Leader

Having gained my experience in care working in the community as a field care supervisor, I am looking forward to working in a care home as it will be a whole new experience for me.

To be a good carer you should be able to have empathy, a caring nature and be able to work as part of a team. My favourite part of my job is knowing that I have made a difference to lives of the residents in our home. So far, my biggest career highlight has been completing my advanced adult apprenticeship in adult social care.

I come from a family of ten and we like to meet up whenever possible. I also help to look after my granddaughter and accompany her to her cheerleading competitions.
