Odeth has been the Head of Care at Bemerton Lodge since October 2021, and with OSJCT since February 2019. 

Odeth began her career in care in 2016 having previously worked as a Logistician for the British Army.  She says the best thing about her current role has been meeting the residents and getting to know them and the staff at Bemerton Lodge.

When she’s not working, Odeth likes to spend time with her family.  She used to play netball and now is a keen follower of the sport on television.

Administration Assistant

Laurie joined OSCJT at the beginning of 2021 after 20 years in the hospitality industry.  Having been front of house in hotels and dealing with lots of people at events, she’s settled in very well to life at Bemerton Lodge.  Laurie is probably the first person you’ll speak to at Bemerton Lodge, and interacting with the residents and their families is her favourite part of the job.  Out of work, you’ll find Laurie spending time with her friends and family, walking in the New Forest, or reading a good book.

Activities Co-ordinator

Caroline has been at Bemerton Lodge since 2019 and has worked as an Activities Co-ordinator for 13 years.  Prior to that, she spent many years in nursing.  Caroline loves the fun she and the residents have together with a broad range of activities from board games and crafting to gardening and baking.  Making music is her favourite weekly activity, and out of work Caroline has been playing the guitar too.  She has started to learn Spanish, and also enjoys gardening and walking her Basset Hound.

Head Housekeeper

Alison is our head housekeeper at Bemerton Lodge and she is also the infection control lead and Dementia lead.  Alison was a cleaning site manager before she joined the Trust in 2013.  She loves the variety in her role which allows her to have good interaction with all the residents alongside her head housekeeping role, and she encourages her team to spend as much time as possible with the residents, too.

Alison has completed her NVQ level 3 on Dementia and is keen to pursue more with that.  She already has a family support group where she helps residents’ family members understand about Dementia.

Outside of work, Alison reads a lot and enjoys Diamond Painting.  She has a Rottweiler called Bob – her third Rottie rescue – and he is full of mischief!
