Katy Anderson

General Manager

Katy Anderson

I qualified as a nurse in 2011 and have worked in various roles during my nursing career.

This has enabled me to gain the experience and knowledge that I have today and to be in the privileged position of managing Foxland Grange.

My roles have included working in hospitals, in a quality team, developing practice for nurses and in a complex care in a nursing home. Delivering the best quality care is at the heart of what I do.

I do my utmost to ensure that everyone feels valued, listened to and supported with their needs and wishes. I love to get to know each person in my care and have a friendly chat with their family and friends, so please come in and say hello!

Rose Powell
Deputy Manager

I’m a trained nurse and used to work at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. I’ve also worked in community nursing roles, as well as in care homes. Working at Foxland Grange has been one of my goals for a while, so I’m delighted to be here and part of the fantastic team.

In this role it’s important to be approachable and friendly. You need to be a good communicator and able to work in a team. A passion to know and understand the people you care for is a must too as Care UK’s ethos is all about delivering person-centred care.

One of the best aspects of what I do is being able to get to know the team, the residents and their families, and to develop strong relationships with them. I see it as a privilege to have the opportunity to do this.

Jazz Lalli
Director of Community Relations

I started working at the home in 2017 – I’d worked in FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) but there was a lot of travelling involved. I decided I was ready for a role with more meaning. What’s so good about working at Foxland Grange is that I’m able to use my skills to make a difference to other people’s lives. While you need to be driven and organised in this role, being a people person is vital. I naturally enjoy helping other people, so it’s a perfect fit for me.

The mornings are the best part of the day in my opinion. I like saying hello to the residents as they look forward to their day. I also meet with the team to plan the day. We’ve a fantastic team here at Foxland Grange. As in every care home, the pandemic was extremely challenging with all the changes and pressure on everyone, but it actually made us stronger than ever.

I like to unwind by going to the gym, going walking, and spending time with family and friends.

Geraldine Bunning
Activities Lead

I joined Foxland Grange in January 2012 and brought passion, fun, and enthusiam with me. I have been patient services team leader in Bridgnorth and an Activities Coordinator for another group of homes. My aim is to make a difference to each resident's day and nothing makes me happier than when I see residents smiling, happy, and can hear laughter.
 

Faye Whitehurst
Lifestyle Lead

I have worked at Foxland Grange since January 2015. Previously, I was working as an Activities Assistant and Care Assistant. Being offered the opportunity to lead the activities department here was the highlight of my career so far.

I enjoy spending time getting to know the residents who live at Foxland Grange. Finding out their life stories is always fascinating.

It’s my job to ensure we have a varied and interesting programme of activities scheduled, and that the activities team is here to support all residents. It’s important to be both a calm and enthusiastic person in this role, as well as someone who is creative and proactive.

I’m proud to make a difference each and every day to the people I work with.

When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, baking and spending time with my family.

Oksana Dovey
Reminiscence Coordinator

I qualified as a nurse back in the early 1990s, and I have been working at Foxland Grange since 2008. I started out in a nursing role before moving into my current role. I always knew I wanted to work with older people but it was a great experience to have worked in intensive care, in GP surgeries and in emergency care.

I love the mornings here at Foxland Grange. It’s a new day, we’ve got the day ahead of us, and it’s lovely being able to greet residents and see their smiles. One of the most rewarding parts of my role is forging strong and positive relationships with residents and their families, and the team I work with. It’s not something that was possible in the nursing roles I used to do.

I enjoy meeting new families and supporting new residents to settle in. Seeing them happy, and with all their needs met, and seeing the families relieved and happy, gives me a wonderful feeling.

Outside of work I like to unwind by going cycling, being out in nature, and spending time with my family.

Jessica Edwards
Business Administrator

I’ve worked in the health and social care sector for ten years, in residential care homes, learning disability services, nursing homes and more. I started out as a healthcare assistant. I can’t imagine working in any other sector – this is my passion!

I enjoy working for Care UK - everyone makes a difference in a Care UK care home. The organisation’s values of caring, passionate and teamwork, are very clear and we all live and breathe them. I look forward to every day here at Foxland Grange. When I walk in and see the team and the residents smiling and already enjoying themselves, I know the day is going to be a good one.

I’m enjoy getting to know the residents of the home, as well as their families. Everyone has lots of stories to tell and I love hearing them.

In my spare time, I enjoy travelling and spending time with my family. I also enjoy fundraising for charity – I’ve done a skydive, so who knows what I might do next!

Jo Webb
Head Chef

I joined the team back in 2018 – my best friend worked here and said it was a great place to work. I’d been the chef and manager of a local pub, but fancied using my skills to make more of a difference to people’s lives.

I can’t imagine working anywhere else now. I really care about doing a good job for the residents, and food and nutrition are so important to their health and wellbeing. I enjoy chatting to them about the food we serve – what they’re enjoying and new things they’d like to try. I love learning more about the lives they’ve led.

I’m really proud to be Head Chef at Foxland Grange. It’s a big step up for me, but I have a great team, Care UK is very supportive, and I’m looking forward to the challenges ahead and to delivering a first class food and dining experience to residents.

Away from work, I’m interested in photography and videography, and I also like to go swimming a couple of times a week. You can also find me walking my dog, Lilly.

Sally Millington
Lead Concierge

I have served in this wonderful community since 2006 and my aim is to ensure that customer service reflects the 'old-fashioned' service which residents are used to from years' gone by. My career originates from the hotel industry where I spent many years as a Functions Manager/Wedding Coordinator where customer service is crucial. Front of house here at Foxland Grange provides a central point for residents to visit if they need simply pointing in the right direction or to book a hair or chiropody appointment. Residents also stop by for a general chat or even sit at the desk and help with some duties which gives great purpose. I have a team of lovely well trained concierges to ensure the desk is manned each day from 8am – 8pm. We offer a secure environment and are stationed near the main door to ensure all visitors are greeted and looked after to a high standard. We promise to continue high end customer service throughout. To be excited to come to work is something I always wished for and my wish has been granted.

Laura Armstrong
Sales Support

I joined the team here in 2013 before moving into the sales department in March 2019. Foxland Grange is a great place to work, with a lovely team who are friends as well as colleagues. I love the interactions with residents and hearing their life stories.
