Meet The Manager

Anthony Browne is Home Manager at Parsons Grange.

I have worked as a home manager since 2006 and I’m passionate about delivering exceptional care – it’s at the heart of Care UK’s values and ethos too. Much of what I do is about empowering the team to make the best decisions they can, helping help them to create a positive outcome for each person they care for. 

In my spare time I enjoy sports, especially CrossFit. Mountain biking is also a passion of mine, I like to play football and I train for competitive swimming events too. My young family also keep me busy – giving me the excuse to climb trees and roll down hills. They remind me what it’s like to live ‘in the moment’.

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)

Yes, our care home has WiFi in all our resident’s rooms.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)

Yes, our care home has mobile phone signal in all our resident’s 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.

Bogdan Gilewicz
Bogdan Gilewicz
Deputy Manager

I have worked in Care since 2012, when I started as a care assistant. I have since worked my way up to a senior team leader and maintenance. I am also a certified professional chef. I enjoy all aspects of running the home and I’m equally happy working in all the departments.

In 2017 I finished my university degree in Management Business Administration. I am currently a Project Manager responsible for building a dental Surgery.

All my previous experience help me to deliver excellent care for residents, and to give the best guidance and support to the team where I can. I am passionate about helping others.

Claire Usher
Claire Usher
Customer Relations Manager

I joined the Parsons Grange team because I wanted to work for a transparent, ethically driven company that puts people’s needs first. Care UK does that both for residents, relatives and colleagues. 

I love doing a job with meaning, and I worked in a healthcare-related role before I joined the team here. I’m actually undertaking counselling training, including training to be a Samaritan in my spare time. I think it’s important to be a great listener and show empathy for people. I have a genuine desire and belief in doing the right thing for people. I think all of those qualities stand me in good stead in this role at Parsons Grange. 

It’s a great feeling to leave the home at the end of the day feeling that I’ve made a positive difference to someone, whether that’s a resident, a family member, a colleague or one of our friends in the community.

Sukhminder Cheema
Nurse Manager and Infection Prevention and Control Champion

I love working in care homes – I was a Senior Nurse in another care home before I joined the Parsons Grange team. I enjoy getting to know residents well and supporting them with their emotional and physical needs. The key attributes that a good Nurse needs are to be caring, compassionate, to have empathy, professionalism and excellent communication/people skills. Flexibility is key as no two days are the same!

I'm also the Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) Champion for Parson's Grange. It's my job to establish and maintain a high standard of hygiene and cleanliness so that residents, colleagues and visitors keep safe.

Angela Martins
Angela Martins
Nurse Manager

I’m a Registered General Nurse and joined the Parsons Grange team because I was keen to develop my experience in social care. When you work as a nurse in a care home, you can get to know the people you care for really well and make a genuine difference to their life.

I was also keen to work in a new home as part of a new team with the opportunity to set a high standard of care from day one.

In my role I think it’s important to have compassion and empathy, to treat people with respect, to have excellent attention to detail – and to be able to make decisions quickly.

In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, the cinema and eating out, and having nice holidays!

Joshua Parks
Head Chef

My wife and I moved from America to the UK so we could be close to her relative with dementia who was living in a care home. When we would visit, I could see how well she was treated and how good the food was. This inspired me to make the change from working in restaurants to working in a care home.

Before joining Parsons Grange, I was a Senior Sous Chef at the Frontline Club in London. I wanted to work for an organisation where I could help people and now, I look forward to coming into work every day. My drive and passion for cooking helps me bring a smile to the people we care for.

Sylwia Kapri
Head Housekeeper

I moved to Parsons Grange from being the Supervisor in a cleaning company where I oversaw 60 colleagues in different locations. I was also a Passenger Service Supervisor at Heathrow Airport for six years. I thought this role looked like a great opportunity, and I was eager to learn some new skills. I’m a people person and love helping others.

I enjoy the fact that there’s always something new to learn at Parsons Grange – it could be about a new resident and how they like things to be done; it could be about how best to support a new team member. It’s important to be ready to take on any challenge and to go the extra mile for residents and their families.

I love the early mornings when I greet the residents and find out how they are. I enjoy spending time with them, chatting and seeing them smile. I’m determined to support residents to enjoy the best possible life in a happy and safe environment. Their wellbeing is my number one priority.
