Meet the Chigwell Team
Deputy Manager/Head of CareI joined Lambwood Heights in October 2019, having previously worked as a Care Home Advance Practitioner at a care home in Romford. My role at Lambwood Heights gives me the flexibility to manage and support the Care and Clinical Team, to ensure residents are safe, cared for and all care and clinical needs are met and to also to connect with our residents and relatives on a daily basis. I enjoy my work because I am able to help people in need to live a happy and independent life. In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis, football, socialising with my friends and visiting my family back home in Romania.
Head ChefI joined Lambwood Heights in February 2020 and bring lots of experience and knowledge to my role as Head Chef, having previously worked at Village Kitchen, La Sala and Chigwell Hall. We pride ourselves on our daily menu, which has enough variety for residents to enjoy something different each day. It’s important to get regular feedback from our residents on their likes and dislikes, whilst ensuring their dietary and nutritional needs are met. We often have themed days such as Caribbean Day and always have Fish and Chip Fridays! I like to ensure residents have their favourite meals too and our milkshakes are very popular.
Client Relations ManagerI have supported Care Homes for over 9 years and previously worked in Leisure and HR. My role is to effectively manage the occupancy levels of both Lambwood Heights and Woodland Grove care homes and build positive relationships with residents, families and external contacts in the community. I work closely with the marketing department and our lifestyles teams to ensure our services are promoted to reflect the excellent care and support we provide. The residents are our extended family who we love to nurture and share daily life with whilst keeping them safe and well. I’m always delighted to meet new families and support their journey.
CQC Rating for Lambwood Heights, Chigwell
“A lovely environment and first-class facilities for a respite stay for my godmother. All the staff were extremely kind and attentive.”
“I have been extremely impressed by the amenities provided, the staff friendliness, and management’s availability to accommodate us if we had any concerns. There have been activities provided on most days we have visited which our friend attends. We appreciate the difficulty at this time with Covid affecting the provision of entertainment but some has been found. We would like to express, the receptionists as they are always pleasant and welcoming.”
“My sister came from a residential home to receive nursing care. Staff are very proactive ensuring my sister is seen by community specialists. Staff are very friendly, helpful, and approachable, nothing seems too much trouble to them. The home is like a 5 star hotel.”
“Where do I start… This is by far the best care home in Essex! From the moment I viewed this wonderful place, I knew it was the place for my auntie to recuperate. Everything about Lambwood Heights ticked all the right boxes… the staff are amazing, the food is fab… every room is decorated to a very high standard… we only booked in for 4-weeks as my auntie had a fractured spine and at 89, she needed 24/7 care.”
“Everything is great. On checking in, the welcoming team were wonderful and made my mother feel at home immediately. The standard of the decor is superb, the food is good, and the staff are extremely caring, with nothing too much for them. The main thing is that my mother is very happy, and taking part in the various activities, and enjoying the gardens. It was certainly the right decision to move to Lambwood Heights. Thank you to all the team.”
“Lambwood Heights is an exceptionally well-appointed care home…. the fantastic staff have been so caring and attentive, the improvement in my father’s condition has been nothing short of miraculous. The staff at Lambwood Heights are incredibly caring and highly professional. Nothing is too much trouble for them whatever my father’s needs, the staff are always ready to help and change things. This is true of every member of staff, from the receptionist, to the chef, the nurses and everyone – they all show so much compassion.”
“Since my father has been at Lambwood Heights Care Home I have been very impressed with the care he has received. All the staff seem to go that extra mile to help with Dad’s needs and helping him to recover from his stroke (he also has vascular dementia). The ambience at Lambwood Heights is wonderful and with the surrounding grounds and gardens, I know the outdoor space will be good for Dad’s wellbeing. From the moment you are greeted by the reception team, you are made to feel very welcome in a family-like environment. Thank you.”
“The management team at Lambwood Heights is extremely well led. I am extremely grateful to all the staff that have made my wife’s admission into the home so smooth. The reception staff and the care team are very professional in their pursuit of making residents feel at home.”
“Faultless. Staff members are friendly, thoughtful, caring, attentive and helpful. My 96-year-old mother was put at ease from the outset. When visiting the staff were always amenable and considerate. Accommodation and facilities are 5 star.”
“Very satisfied with the entire experience so far, from the initial conversation, tour, finalising the details of the room, the day of the move and of course the ongoing care that my mother is receiving.”
