Meet The Manager

Marie Wood is Home Director at Foxhunters Care Community.

I’ve been in the care industry since leaving school. All I’ve ever done is care. I’ve worked in every role and I believe that gives me the ability to understand things from everyone’s perspective. It is my dream to manage a care home and I’m thrilled to be given this role at Foxhunters which is so fantastically thought through. It’s such a pleasure working with an establishment like Dormy Care Communities which shares my passion for providing excellent care for individuals. Abergavenny is a stunning town.

Everyone has been so welcoming and I’m greatly encouraged by the work that’s been done locally, before we officially open to quickly establish Foxhunters as a community home within the community. As Home Director my door is always open to support the ladies and gentlemen who live with us as well their family members.

Marie Wood

With fabulous views over The Blorenge, this beautiful purpose built care home offers everything you could wish for and is close to pretty market towns surrounded by mountains and hills. A place anyone would be proud to call home!

Our person-centred focus is on providing care that is personalised and treating people with compassion and respect. At a Dormy Care Community, you can be reassured that everything will be tailored to your individual needs and you will receive the best care possible. We offer the full spectrum of care, from dementia, nursing and palliative care to residential and respite care. Whether you have complex care needs or would like to move in with us as more of a lifestyle choice, we are equipped to deal with your requirements.

Description

We have 70 fully furnished ensuite bedrooms at Foxhunters. Each room has an ensuite bathroom and the option for a TV, phone and internet which our maintenance manager will happily set up. Many of our downstairs rooms have patio doors which lead directly out onto the beautiful landscaped gardens.

Our home offers four luxurious companion suites for couples to continue living together without significantly altering their lifestyle. The suite includes a sitting room, bedroom and ensuite bathroom - the perfect place for couples to stay together.

You are welcome to bring your own personal belongings from home to furnish your room with. Each room has a photo box for you to add photos to and create a collage of memories to share with staff, visitors and residents.

A state-of-the-art nurse call system is in place in every room, with a revolutionary falls monitoring system from Eclipse Nurse Call. It provides added security for those at risk of falling, allowing people to have a good nights’ sleep without being unnecessarily disturbed.

Alexander
Head Chef

I have worked for some very successful restaurants in London, culminating 15 years of industry experience. This has afforded me some amazing opportunities, including the service of private dinners within Windsor Castle and the opportunity to work with one of my industry role models, Angela Hartnett. It is a privilege and an honour to have worked alongside some of the industry leaders, but it is even more of an honour and a privilege to have to opportunity to use this experience to bring something special to the Care Industry.

Dormy Care Communities has created an opportunity for me to exercise and develop my passion, not just for food, but also for service, allowing me to try to create a truly unique and special dining experience within our Care Community. It is our aim to make the experience of food special for everyone within our community.

I have lived in this beautiful part of South Wales for all my life and have been working in a maintenance role within the care sector for the past nine years. I have gained a huge amount of experience, skills and knowledge needed to come on board in my new role.

The Importance Of Meal Times

We don’t have set mealtimes, there will always be availability to eat when you feel like it. We do encourage residents to dine together between the hours of 1 and 2pm, so that they can enjoy the social side of mealtimes.

We also have Harry's Bar, a fully stocked complimentary bar which is perfect for pre dinner drinks perhaps a little late night cap. 

Our coffee lounge is the hub of our home, somewhere to have a drink and try our delicious homemade cakes!
