Alana Corr

Home Manager

Alana Corr

I joined Care UK in May 2021 because I love their passion for residents and the training and support staff are provided.

I have management experience in both residential and nursing homes, and my biggest achievement to date was helping a home from requires improvement to overall good and outstanding.

As a manager you need to be caring, have a great amount of patience and resilience to any obstacles that come up. It is important to have good communication with your team and show compassion to the people we provide care for. 

My favourite part of each day is in the afternoon when everyone is calm and relaxed and I can take time to chat to residents and ask about their day.

Alin Petrescu
Deputy Manager

I joined Care UK in 2023, my previous role was a Senior Nurse and Clinical lead.

To be successful in this role you need to have a good approach to your colleagues, personal skills and a positive attitude.

My favourite part of the day is going around in the morning, chatting to each resident and having a cup of tea. I enjoy being part of a really good team, who are dedicated and committed to providing the very best care.

Ingrid Jackson
Lifestyle Coordinator

I have been a part of the Care UK team since 2014, previously working in the care sector.

There are a lot of skills that are needed for this role, including good communication, understanding, and caring. Most importantly, to have a passion for making a difference to peoples lives.

My favourite part of the day is seeing the residents enjoying the activities whether that be seated chair exercises or enjoying a baking class.

My biggest career highlight is becoming Lifestyle Coordinator at Catherine Court, I thoroughly enjoy my role and the team I work with.

Rita Leon
Lifestyle Coordinator

I’ve worked for Care UK for a long time – first as a Care Assistant in one of the London homes and then here at Catherine Court.

Care UK is a great company to work for, so, when I moved out of London, I was keen to stay working within the organisation.

A big highlight for me was being given the opportunity to move from working as a carer into the Lifestyle team. I love spending lots of quality time with residents and their families. I was also very proud when I was nominated for an activities role.

Coming into work each day, I never know what the day will bring, but whatever we have planned, it’s our goal to make residents smile and to support them to enjoy a meaningful, fulfilling life.

Outside of work I enjoy walking my dog, socialising with friends and going into London to see my family. I look forward to my holidays too!

Torrin Edwards
Head Chef

I first joined the team at Catherine Court in 2021 having previously worked as an Area Manager, Catering Manager and a Head Chef.

My favourite part of my job is cooking for the residents. To do well in this role, you need to have a good understanding of food, staff, people, and a sense of humor is important.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children.

Nixey Mutthawadee

Before joining Care UK, I was an accountant and security, but I was keen to move my career in a different direction and the role of Second Chef really appealed to me.

I joined the team at Catherine Court in 2020.

I’m passionate about what I do, and I think that is important in this role. I particularly enjoy baking and decorating. Creativity is key too; I love having the freedom to create new and exciting dishes that puts a smile on the residents faces. 

Serena Williams
Business Administrator

Before moving to the Catherine Court team I was an office Administrator in a pharmaceuticals company.

However, I was looking for a more interesting and varied role that fitted better with my family life.

I’ve relished the move into the care sector. I’m using my IT and numerical skills, as well as my communication skills but I’m helping residents’ families and I’m making a difference. It’s a great feeling.

I’ve already learnt so much, including more about recruitment, finance and various software systems. I love meeting new people and there’s always someone new to get to know, whether it’s a resident, their family or members of the team. I enjoy the fact that every day is different.

Nicole Harding

I come from a hospitality background but I joined the Catherine Court team in 2021 when I fancied a change of sector.

I think many of the skills I used in my previous roles are important in this one, including patience, being a good listener, having initiative and being able to juggle multiple tasks!

There’s such a lovely atmosphere here at Catherine Court. It feels like a family home and everyone gets on so well. It makes a huge difference to the work I do. Lunch times are always a highlight of the day when everyone’s enjoying having a chat and sharing their news over the great food our kitchen team serve up.

There’s always plenty to learn and what’s great about Care UK is that you’re able to explore your care interests and develop your career in different ways. The sky’s the limit and anything’s possible!

Susan Cook
Team Leader

I have a care background: prior to joining the team here at Catherine Court I cared for young adults with learning disabilities.

I was keen to work with older people living with dementia, as that’s a big interest of mine, so I made the move to Care UK.

I’m passionate about ensuring that every person we care for has their needs met and is supported to live a fulfilling and rewarding life. The key is knowing each person very well so you know what that looks like for the individual.

Care UK has a superb reputation for its dementia care and for its innovative approach. It partners with leading academics in dementia research and this means we’re at the forefront of thinking and developments in this field. Everyone in the team is supported to develop their knowledge and skills around dementia care, and that gives us the confidence to deliver the best care to our lovely residents.

Looking ahead to the future, I’m looking forward to getting to know the residents and their families better, to continuing to work with the great team at Catherine Court, and to continuing to enhance my knowledge of dementia.

Cerys Irons
Care Assistant

This is my first full time job since leaving university and it requires all sorts of different skills.

Having patience and people skills is important, as is the ability to multitask as there’s always plenty happening.

I’ve started an apprenticeship in Health and Social Care since starting at Catherine Court and I’m enjoying developing my skills and I’m looking forward to progressing my career.

I think my favourite time of the day is afternoon tea time. It’s a chance for everyone to get together and have a chat about what they’ve been up to. It’s lovely seeing the residents relax and enjoying themselves.

In my free time I like to take my dog for walks and to keep fit at the gym. I look forward to seeing you at Catherine Court very soon.

Caitlin Turner

I was looking for a role where I could make a real difference, and so in 2022, I left my job as a pub manager to join the team at Catherine Court.

Having a caring personality is essential for this role and it’s important you have patience and that you a good listener. My favourite part of my job is seeing the resident’s smile. I find it really rewarding when I’m able to do something to brighten up their day. 

Hazel Casemore
Head Housekeeper

I was a store cleaning manager before joining the team in 2022.

I was keen to work within a care home as I wanted to make a difference, and I feel I do that here at Catherine Court.

To be a Head Housekeeper, you need to listen and gain the trust of your team. We have very high standards and it’s important we work together to ensure these are maintained. The best part of my day is when I get time to chat to the residents.

In my spare time I enjoy line dancing. I have written three new dances and have had them published online.  

Canine Relations Manager

My mum, Alana is the Home Manager at the home, I came to work with her one day and didn’t want to leave, so we made the decision that I should work here on a permanent basis as part of the team.

My job is to put smiles on faces and to share the love. I visit all floors within the home and I can even come to your room if you wish. I have so much love to give that I just to share it with anyone I meet. I love a stroke and cuddle, but if I sit longer enough will I get an extra biscuit or three.

I am here to be your furry best friend, you can even take me for a walk – perhaps to the shop to share a fresh pack of digestives.

I am cheeky. What can I say? It’s a gift I have. See you soon!
