Garth House Care Home with Nursing

Dad has been at Garth House for just over 2 years. Unfortunately in that time his dementia has become worse. But the staff who work there still treat dad as a human being and with a lot of dignity. He can no longer stand or walk but the staff move him between a wheelchair and his chair or bed with care and attempt to be as gentle as possible. It is good that the staff are directly employed and there doesn't seem to be a very high turnover of staff. The home always looks clean and the food always looks good and they offer a good choice everyday. There are regular meetings between the residents families and the staff to ensure good communication.

Staff are always polite and courteous, dedicated and compassionate. This includes senior management, nursing staff, catering department, events organiser, domestic staff etc. Since my mother Dinah Simpson has resided at Garth House 19/2/13 her quality of life has improved 100%. Not only are the residents extremely well looked after, I must say the same goes for the relatives and friends.

Staff Profiles

Roz

Roz Salamandi

Job Title: Home Manager

Joined: 2014

Description:

As manager of Garth House, Roz leads her professional staff team in delivering the highest level of residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 39 residents.

In a wide-ranging nursing career, Roz amassed more than twelve years of experience across acute medical wards, oncology, haematology and surgical nursing, before specialising in care for the elderly in 2002. She took over as the owner and manager of a private care home and has continued to work in the sector to date, only interrupted by a short period of two years spent working in a private hospital in Barbados.

This diverse experience has equipped Roz well for her role at Garth House, where she works hard to ensure that those in her care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.

‘I feel privileged to be able to make a difference to people’s lives every day.’

As well as spending time with residents and making sure they are comfortable, safe and happy, Roz sees it as an important part of her role to act as a mentor to her team. She firmly believes that a happy, fulfilled and motivated staff team will be in a better position to consistently deliver a high standard of care.

In her spare time, Roz enjoys reading, gardening and walking her dogs near to her Fernhurst home in the picturesque Surrey Hills, where she has lived for the past four years.
