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, friends and families 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.

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.

Home Manager

Daniela is the Home Manager of Westgate House. She has over 20 years’ experience in the care industry and holds an active PIN number for the registered nurse. She has also completed her diploma in nursing which she studied back in her country Slovakia.

Daniela has been working in a variety of hospital wards, but her passion has gravitated her towards elderly care. Daniela has been living in the UK since 2004 and joined the Trust in 2020 after being a Nursing Manager in another home for many years. Daniela has previously worked as ‘Head of Care’ and has a great passion for delivering a high standard of care. She moved her way up to the Home Manager role within a year of joining the Trust.

Daniela has attended many different in-house training sessions over the years which has helped her to improve the level of care she delivers, as well as helping her to effectively lead her team and ensure teamwork is thorough throughout. Daniela is working towards her level 5 in Health and Social care and hopes to complete this by 2021.

“I will always be proud to be a nurse. Being dedicated to my role, giving all I can to ensure that the residents care is delivered to the highest possible standard. I strongly believe in person centred care. I am very knowledgeable in Dementia care through all my experience. Each day in nursing is never the same, you need to accommodate your day around the residents and their individual needs. I like to work closely with staff and get to know them. Ensuring that they are a good role model in our care home. It is valuable for staff to be able gain the trust and respect at the same time. I believe in “walking the floor” and I always go the extra mile to make things as nice as possible for the staff, residents and our families. Ensuring that philosophy of the home is maintained at all times, creating a calm, safe and friendly working environment at all times where possible.”

Daniela loves to spend her free time with her family, animals and enjoys the outdoors with gardening.
