Spotlight on our Kitchen Team
"We are more than a team, we are a family."
This week we are putting the spotlight on our fantastic kitchen team at Grace Care Centre.
The team is headed up by Constantin (Head Chef) and Denise (Cook). They are supported by several dedicated Kitchen Assistants that include; Helen, Szabina, Daisy, Stefan, Robert and Rosie.
Throughout the past couple of months, additional procedures have been added to their working life – from the additional hygiene measures to wearing PPE whilst cooking. Some of the team have also moved into Grace Care Centre in a bid to reduce risks during this time.
As Constantin says, they have taken these in their stride with the support of the staff and the happiness of the residents at the forefront of their minds. “We are more than a team; we are a family! It is wonderful to see smiles on our residents’ faces when we serve them their meals. At Grace Care Centre, we believe in taking the time to get to know each of our residents so we can provide them with the best possible experience during their time with us. This is an approach we take when creating our meals as well.”
This viewpoint is echoed by Stefan. “It really is a fantastic place to work. Our residents are very well looked after and we put them at the heart of everything we do.”
Rosie is one of the newest recruits to the team. “Grace Care Centre has a brilliant reputation with the local community, and it is clear to see why.”
Peter Moore, General Manager at Grace Care Centre, said: “Constantin, Denise and the team have shown unbelievable dedication throughout the past few months. Aspects of their role have completely changed during this time and they have gone above and beyond to ensure our residents are safe and well looked after. Thank you!”
