Meet The Manager

Linda Walker is General Manager at South Grange Care Centre.

I have over 30 years experience in nursing in many different fields and love to share my knowledge with all staff, carers and nurses therefore enabling the highest standards of care for our residents.

I firmly believe in an open door policy for all at South Grange where residents and relatives are more than welcome to come in for a chat at any time.

We pride ourselves in providing an environment that is warm and friendly which delivers person centred care to our residents, ensuring that they are at the heart of everything we do here.

Linda Walker

South Grange is situated on the outskirts of 'Bonnie Dundee' in the seaside town of Monifieth.

Our nursing home was built on the site of a previous farm building and has retained the charm of the 'Mill', which is now our main lounge. South Grange exudes a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

South Grange offers 24-hour nursing and palliative care to elderly frail residents. Our team provides a high standard of care and we focus on the individual needs of residents by creating a tailor-made care plan which is regularly updated. We provide a varied activities programme including regular concerts, carpet bowls league, outings and much, much more.

Within our residential care home we have our Seven Arches Unit which provides expert care for young clients with acquired brain injuries, neurological disorders and those clients who need to be ventilated. The team at Seven Arches consists of Specialist Trained Registered Nurses, Physiotherapists, Senior Care Assistants, Occupational Therapist and Activities Staff. The team work with each client to facilitate a plan of care specific to individual needs and can provide slow stream rehabilitation as well as long term and palliative care.

Following our last Care Inspectorate Inspection we were rated Grade 5 – Very Good.

We strive to make life at Barchester care homes as stimulating and fulfilling as possible and are committed to ensuring independence, dignity and choice in every aspect of daily life.

From carers and nurses to activities co-ordinators and chefs, our compassionate staff are all trained to use a person-centred approach and spend time getting to know every individual in order to learn what they like and what is important to them.

Striving for the highest possible quality care at our home is at the centre of everything we do, and helping residents to maintain their independence, dignity and individuality for as long as possible is an important goal for all who work here. Personal needs and desires are always taken into consideration, so that we can deliver the best quality, bespoke care to everyone we support.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Food and Nutrition at our home

Our irresistible cuisine is prepared with only the very best fresh, seasonal produce, and based on the individual tastes of the people we support. Our menu will satisfy even those with the smallest of appetites; from breakfast through to dinner, residents can discover something different with fresh flavour and lovely presentation. Our fantastic chefs are always keeping themselves busy in the kitchen creating new and exciting dishes for everyone to enjoy.

Dietary requirements

For residents that have difficulties in swallowing we modify the menu of the day so that is it a soft, palatable dish. To support our chefs in producing these dishes, our hospitality and Chef Academy organises theory and practical workshops. Working in partnership with Nutricia, our practical workshops involve all chefs and deputy managers learning about dysphagia and producing these modified menus. The chefs work with the chef trainer to prepare fork mashable and thick puree meals to the correct consistency, taste and presentation. The deputy managers can then ensure all modified menus served are presented correctly for our residents.

Attracting top chefs

Our chefs are recruited on the basis of an interview with the regional hospitality support team and the manager for the home. Selection also involves a practical element where potential cooks are asked to cook for and meet a panel of people living in the home. Chefs take their job extremely seriously and our annual Chef competition sees our chefs battle it out in regional heats and then at a national final for the accolade of 'Barchester's Chef of the Year'.

Activities Are So Important

Our specialist activities staff are committed to organising a mix of activities and events for residents and the local community to get involved in, including trips out to local places of interest in our minibus and visits from entertainers and musicians. It is important to us that each individual who we support can get as much from these as possible, so we try our best to arrange activities that reflect their interests and capabilities as best as possible, and encourage them to participate in any way they can. We also encourage relatives to join with activities and events as often as they can.
