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 for residents and visitors 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 at Digby Court. We have 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.

We are also fortunate to have the support of many volunteers of all ages from the local community, strengthening our links to this thriving town. Here is a sample of activities on offer:

  • Trips to garden centres, cafés, pubs, sporting events, National Trust parks, wildlife parks, aquariums and museums.
  • Visit from Pets as Therapy Dogs
  • Exercise and wellness activities, for example Seated Yoga, Zumba
  • Fun activities with the local toddler and nursery group
  • Board game competitions and quizzes
  • Music therapy sessions
  • Gardening
  • Arts and crafts
  • Communal Church services

With so many well-being activities for body and mind on offer, we also recognise that everyone needs some personal space for relaxation and mindfulness for personal reflection. The cosy lounges offer an opportunity for some quiet time or to host family and friends.

And that’s not all:

We’ve had silent discos, hoe downs, Chinese banquets, Oscar parties and so much more.

Many of the activities feature Reminiscence Therapy to aid those living with Dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.

There's never a dull moment. We run regular activities and events for all to join including:

  • Coffee mornings
  • Care Home Open Day
  • Summer and Autumn fetes
  • Christmas parties

Meet the team

Home Manager

Michaela is the Home Manager at Digby Court, she has over 8 years experience in the care industry. 

Michaela joined the Trust in 2021 after relocating to Lincolnshire from Rutland, where she worked in a care home for 5 years. She worked her way up from Care Assistant to Senior Care Assistant in just under a year. Whilst also gaining her NVQ Level 2 and 3 qualifications in Health and Social Care.

Michaela joined the Trust as a Night Lead, and after just a few months she moved up to the Head of Care role. Michaela is currently the Home Manager at Digby Court and is undergoing training to become a Safeguarding Ambassador, as she wants to empower both staff and the residents. She has just been enrolled to undergo her Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management for Adult Care, striving to complete this in 2024.

Michaela realised her passion for care when she studied her nursing, Michaela decided to leave the course in year 2 as she felt that not enough time was given to patients. She said: “I enjoy working in a care home setting as the residents become family. We get to know them, and they get to know us. This includes their loved ones that visit too. Growing up, I experienced my grandma living with Alzheimer's, and she lived in a Care home. I just want to do my best to see all residents have that family feel when under our care.”

Activities Coordinator

Abbie is the home’s Activities Coordinator, although Abbie has worked in the home previously as a night carer. 

Abbie started off her career in care back in 2020, but prior to that she was a supervisor at an English-themed sports bar in Trondheim, Norway! 
She has worked in a range of different roles within care, including night carer, receptionist, and now Activities Coordinator.

We asked Abbie what she likes most about her role, here's what she said, "I love my job as an Activities Coordinator because I really get to see the best sides of the residents, doing activities and hobbies that they enjoy with big smiles on their faces! I love taking the residents on trips out, as they love engaging with the local community and reminiscing about how the town used to look."

 

Administration Assistant

Fay is Digby Courts Administration Assistant.

Fay started her working career in Peebles Scotland in a family run department store, from there she moved to Germany and worked for the RAF. After she returned from Germany, Fay worked at Doncaster College, Interflora, and Supported Housing before embarking on her career with the OSJCT here at Digby Court.

We asked fay what she likes about working in the care industry, and here's what she said, "I enjoy my role as here at Digby Court as Admin. My office is situated at the front of reception, and I am usually the first person any visitors see, so I try really hard to be upbeat and friendly but professional at all times.  I enjoy the day-to-day work that comes under my remit, but what is the absolute best thing about working here are the residents.  I could never do care, and I take my hat off to those that do. Furthermore, I get to spend time and interact with all residents on a daily basis, and they always bring a smile to my face, it is my biggest joy in work."
