My name is Amber Bond. I am registered manager of Wolston Grange.
I have been manager for the past 5 years, first at Elmhurst Assisted Living and Care facility and then, following promotion, for 2 years at Wolston Grange Care Home.
During my childhood, my parents fostered people living with dementia and I grew up surrounded by older people and people living with dementia in my own home. I started working in care when I was 16 years old at a day care facility at the weekends, and have since gone on to obtain my level 3 and level 5 diploma in Health and Social Care specifically following the Dementia Pathway.
I am thoroughly enjoying the challenge of a larger home supporting people living with dementia and younger people with mental health needs. I am a very hands on manager and have high standards of care both for myself and my staff. I pride myself on being an approachable manager to staff and relatives alike.
Wolston Grange is a beautiful home, set in stunning grounds which over the past two years has seen major improvements. We strive to ensure that our residents are happy, enjoy life and are supported as individuals to thrive both at the home and in the community.
Wolston Grange is able to provide specialist dementia care for those with more complex needs. We have a fantastic team of well trained staff, we value each individual member for their strengths and positive contributions to daily life at the home. Some staff have been working here for over ten years and our staff retention rates are high. I am extremely proud of our staff and the knowledge they have of our residents and their needs, wants and wishes.
We aim to continue to provide excellent care and support to each of our day care, respite and permanent residents now and in the future. We strive to achieve outstanding results both in our inspection reports and other regular professional visits.
