Meet the team

The talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home-cooked meals on site daily from our own kitchens. We source quality produce for our excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. All-day dining is available for lighter meals and snacks and all dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences.

Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join us. The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on. Our chef bakes every day so there is always a fresh cake to enjoy.

Residents are also encouraged to help prepare their own food and to make snacks whenever they choose.

Whether it’s wet or dry outside, we at OSJCT feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.

Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us. Each home has a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.

A daily activity schedule for a home may include:

  • Trips to garden Centres, café’s, pubs, sporting events, National Trust parks, wildlife parks, aquariums and museums.
  • Performances from entertainers
  • Coffee mornings
  • Art and Craft clubs
  • Quiz Nights
  • Exercise classes such as Zumba and Thai chi.
  • Ice skating
  • Opera and theatre visits
  • Visits from local petting farms, reptile houses and PAT dogs.
  • Local school visits
  • Wine and cheese tastings

Meet the team

Home Manager

Mercy has been in care for over 22 years, having been employed for almost every role in a care home. Mercy brings a lot of hands-on experience to her role as Home Manager of the dementia side of Avonbourne. Having started out as a carer, Mercy worked her way up to become a care leader and later becoming Head of Care at Willowcroft in Salisbury.

During her time as Head of Care; Mercy worked alongside our other Home Manager Sharon Payne, helping shape Willowcroft into the home it is now. Mercy was then awarded her own home in Mere, where she managed Fives Court for a number of years.

Wanting to shape a Dementia home, Mercy was then given the opportunity to be the Home Manager of Avonbourne's dementia side and we were delighted to welcome Mercy in late 2018.

Mercy's goal is to make Avonbourne an example of how to care for those living with Dementia.

Activity Coordinator

Jane is one of two Activities Co-ordinators here at Avonbourne Care Centre. She is focused not only on meaningful activities and general well being within the home, but also on setting up links within our local community and encouraging a younger demographic to come through the doors to bridge the gap between generations.

Jane hasn’t always worked in care, however her roles have focused on enriching the lives of those who would otherwise struggle, including working with children with disabilities.

You can always find Jane by listening out for laughter and music in the home.
