Rachael Woodward

Home Manager

Rachael Woodward

I previously worked in interim turnaround roles before leaving to join Care UK in 2021.

I am a qualified trainer and assessor, NVQ level 4 in Strategic and Operational Management, Registered Managers Award, and have my level 5 QCF in Health and Social Care.

Since I began my career in care a lot has changed. However, I wanted to work with an organisation that delivers its homes with the best service and supports the people we provide care for emotionally, socially and physically. Mill View reflects these values and I am so happy that this is where I belong and I can support my team and make it a great place for people to live.

My role keeps me very busy but I love to wander around the home, chat to residents and relatives and participate in the odd activity, including my favourite Zumba classes.

Amy Batchelor
Customer Relations Manager

I used to be a sales executive for a large corporate insurance company but I moved to Care UK because they really care about their residents.

They have beautiful care homes and passionate teams and the wellbeing of residents is at the heart of everything they do.

It really matters to me that I believe my role is making a difference to someone’s life, and I have that satisfaction in my role here at Mill View. I love showing our beautiful home to members of the community and prospective residents and their families, knowing that our team can help them. 

Dominic Cope
Head Chef

Before working for Care UK, I was a private chef for a luxury travel company and before that I was a sous chef in a fine dining restaurant.

As head chef I try to balance the team’s rotas and workload to keep everything fair and the kitchen a happy working space. My favourite part of working at Mill View is being able to create fun and fresh menus for the people we provide care for.

I am a chef at heart and love to cook up tasty food for people to enjoy. At home I still like to cook in a relaxed environment to continue to further my skills. When not cooking or eating I also play the saxophone. 

Alexandra Bolohan
Business Administrator

I first joined Care UK in 2015 and have developed within the company from working as a Team Leader for over four years to my current role.

When I come to work, I feel like I’m seeing my second family and I love that the staff are very friendly and dedicated.

To be successful in this role I believe you need to love your role and enjoy what you are doing. You also need to be caring, have respect, and positivity – a smile can turn someone’s day around so much.

I love the interaction with the residents, my favourite part of the day is greeting them and having a chat with them. I love seeing the smiles on their faces and seeing them happy.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my little boy, and I love reading books and listening to music.

Kathleen Burton
Registered General Nurse and Infection Prevention and Control Champion

The Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) Champion’s role is to establish and maintain a high standard of hygiene and cleanliness so that residents and colleagues in the home are kept safe.

They ensure that all colleagues are well trained in infection control and are on hand to ensure the team are working to the highest standards.

Our experienced teams

Every day Care UK colleagues live our values of passionate, caring and teamwork to empower residents to enjoy fulfilling lives.

Carers

Our hardworking teams always keep individuals and their families at the heart of the care they provide. We work with you to shape the care your loved one receives, the food they’re served, the activities and experiences they want to do – even the ways they prefer to keep in touch with their friends and family. 

Nurses

The nurses at Care UK are highly skilled and receive sector-leading training, which enables them to keep developing expertise in different clinical fields from dementia to palliative care.

Lifestyle

Our dedicated lifestyle teams work hard to organise a range of activities and events at our home. From gardening and baking to quizzes, music sessions and even live entertainment. Above all, we get to know your loved one to make sure our activities are tailored to suit their interests and hobbies.

Home support roles

From catering to maintenance, housekeeping to administration, our home support teams play a crucial part in ensuring individuals enjoy an exceptional and safe service every day.

All our teams get to know each person they care for to ensure they provide a service that’s designed around their unique needs and tastes. 

Infection control

Each of our homes have a trained Infection Control and Prevention Champion – they are responsible for carrying out daily infection control audit and ensuring cleaning protocols are meticulously applied.
