Meet The Manager

Evan Arceo is General Manager - Potters Grange at Potters Grange.

Hello my name is Evan and I am a registered adult nurse and have been working in the Health and Social Care Industry for the last 11 years.

I have a wealth of knowledge and experience gained in different health and social care sectors including; Nursing and Residential Homes, Mental Health services, Research Centre and Hospital wards (A&E, Rehab unit, and haemodialysis).

I have always built a close and strong working relationship with residents, always thinking of them as an extension of my own family. I believe kindness and warmth should always be the centre of the care that we provide.

People may forget the things that you have said and done, but they will never forget how you made them feel.

I am very excited to lead the Potters Grange team and together we will deliver our care ethos by providing a non-judgemental, non-biased, person centred care to all residents.

Evan Arceo

Brand New - Bespoke Residential home with Nursing, quite like no other near Potters Bar.

Potters Grange is an Ardale home. We are a local family run business which has owned and managed care homes for more than 25 years. We have created Potters Grange to be a boutique home suitable for our own family members to live in.

We are not an anonymous ‘grey’ corporate care company and you will soon get to know us all. Our experienced leadership team is responsible for a small number of bespoke homes, so we can give each one our full support to deliver the highest quality care.

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.

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.

Our Building and Facilities

Potters Grange is made up of two small households of a maximum of ten people, that are known as Hadley and Aspen. So unlike other large care homes, Potters Grange really feels like 'Home from Home'.

We want you to enjoy a family like camaraderie with other residents, but with the privacy of your private bedroom, never too far away to pop back to.

Both households have a dining area with kitchen and a beautiful appointed lounge. Each lounge and dining room benefits from air conditioning, so eating and relaxing is always comfortable, even on the hottest of summer days. The ground floor lounge has easy access to the garden and dining terrace, with its water feature.

Potters Grange maybe a new name to the care home sector but behind the name is a senior team with many years or nursing and care expertise.

We are currently handpicking a team made up from many disciplines, skills and backgrounds, because although Potters Grange is beautiful, it’s the staff within it which brings a home to life, giving it its distinct personality and vitality.
