The attentive care team focus on the individual needs of the residents, with a tailored care plan for each person.

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 Foxby 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
  • 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

Sara, the Home Manager at Foxby Court, has been in the role since August 2023 but has been with the Trust for just under 5 years.

“I worked in other care homes for over 11 years as a Carer, then onto a Senior Carer. I worked 4 years on nights before I came back on days as Care Supervisor. I then worked 2 years as Deputy Manager. I had some time out before I became the Night Deputy in other care homes for 4 months, and 1 year as a Senior before I took the post at Foxby Court as a Senior Carer. After 4 months with OSJCT I took the Head of Care role, which I have done for over 4 years before becoming the Home Manager.”

“I enjoy working in the care sector and enjoy helping people in the best way possible. Delivery of care is paramount, and I enjoy helping with the different care needs through the different stages in life. Being the Home Manager at Foxby Court, I am now on a new journey within my career.”

“Outside of work, I am married, and I have a son who still lives at home. My husband and I enjoy walking and seeing friends and going to new places. We are keen National Trust members.”

Sara's compassion shows both in her commitment to the residents and her long history of working in care, we're truly fortunate to have her leading the way. 

Admin Assistant

Stacey, the Admin Assistant at Foxby Court, looks after all the administrative needs. Stacey has come on leaps and bounds since starting at Foxby Court and is already a core member of the team. 

 

“I started with the trust as an Admin Assistant in June. Before this, I worked for one of the big six supermarkets as a Bakery Manager and in other various departments throughout the store. I was with them for 16 years. I enjoy the interaction I have with the residents, their families and all the colleagues. No two days are the same, which I particularly enjoy, and I like to help residents’ family members with any queries they have about the home. I have also been out and about in the community promoting our home. Outside of work, I have 3 children and a husband at home. All 3 of my children attend various clubs, which I love to take them to and watch them progress in different areas of the sport.”

 

We are delighted to have Stacey on board and are looking forward to seeing her flourish in her new role.
