The Team

 

Blenheim Team

Meet the team

Our experienced and dedicated staff provide the highest standards of individual care and support to our residents.

Our manager

Blenham House is run by Mandy Rogers who was appointed as Manager in 2007. Mandy is now one of our senior managers and she is aided by an experienced Deputy Manager and team of registered nurses, carers and support staff.

Our team

As a nursing home, Blenham House has a particularly high level of qualified staff, with nurses on duty 24 hours a day, providing peace of mind for residents and their families. Our care staff are equally committed; together nurses and support staff form a professional, compassionate team with the ability to make life fulfilling and full of laughter.

At Blenham House we employ managerial and administrative staff as well as domestic, kitchen and ancillary staff. Mandy leads a strong professional unit where every member of staff knows the name of every resident. We treat our residents with compassion, affection and above all, respect

Expertise and continuity

Blenham House meets National Care Standards, see our inspection report and this is in many ways due to the outstanding performance of our staff. Many have worked at Blenham House for a number of years, which provides essential continuity of care and contributes to the family atmosphere. The assignment of a named nurse and key worker to each resident ensures that individuals feel cared for, and we find that a single point of contact is helpful for families who want to know how their relative is faring and discuss any aspects of their care.

What our residents and their families say

  • I have to thank all at Blenham House for the love, care and attention given to mum. Fun and laughter were always the order of the day.

    The activities give everyone a chance to participate – from a sing song, to having their hair done and cooking sessions.

    Mandy Rogers, the manager of the Blenham House family, and all her staff have been wonderfully supportive: coming to terms with the varying degrees of dementia, how it affects all the family, not just the person suffering with it.

    Alison, one of mum’s carers, used to have great conversations with mum, as did all the staff. I cannot thank all of them enough for their care and love.

    Claire, daughter

  • My sister and I would like to express our deep gratitude to you all for the love and care you showed to our cousin.

    Over the many years she was in care, you were indeed her family and we thank you for all the kindness and attention. Thanks, too, to the many members of staff who attended her funeral and the most beautiful floral tribute.

    June, niece

  • I wanted to thank you and your extended team for the wonderful care my Great Aunt Di received. Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of her taking up residence. I have been delighted with the care she has received over this time as there have been many dark days.

    You very kindly supplied extra carers in recent months, which supported her physically and emotionally to allow her to recover and hit yet another milestone. She was frail five years ago and I am thrilled that with the support of the staff she has enjoyed this warm and nurturing environment for these, her later years.

    Katrina, great niece
