Claire Cullen 

General Manager 

I am delighted at my appointment as General Manager, Signature Ascot Grange, which commenced on the 15th April 2019.
I’ve been within care for 21 years in which I have managed a number of homes during my career as well as supporting additional homes regionally.

originally began my career in Finance progressing to a Senior Finance Business Partner role in the Health Sector before deciding to move to an operational role having enjoyed the resident experience and being able to influence a difference to enhance the lives of the individuals, we are privileged to care for.

On a personal level, I have been married to my husband Paul, for 24 years and have two wonderful boys, Scott & Ed. Family and friends are incredibly important to me with my weekends and holidays always full of social events and quality time together. Holidays, eating out and planning events are all things I thoroughly enjoy with shopping in any form being an all-time passion.

Client Liaison Manager

Mariam Rafiq 

Placing an elderly friend or relative into care is not something we have all experienced. The journey of finding the best care in the right environment can be overwhelming and quite often you don’t know where to start.

Supporting families to navigate through the various care options and offering information and guidance to make the right decision in choosing the right Home is what I find most rewarding.

With the close relationships, we have formed with professionals, hospitals, community services and charities, both national and local, we can help connect you to the right people for further advice and peace of mind.

Having worked in the luxury care industry for the last seven years, I am enormously excited to be working at Signature’s beautiful home, Ascot Grange. My role as Client Liaison Manager will be the first point of contact and as a guide for families and individuals seeking advice on moving in with us which can be a hugely emotional time for all concerned.

I look forward to welcoming our new residents and seeing them thrive in their stunning new home.

Dementia Care Manager

I am originally from China, where I trained as a general nurse. I have worked in the care sector for over 10 years, specialising in dementia care. The most enjoyable part of my role is the residents, all of whom have fantastic life stories and to whom I owe so much. I had the privilege to join the Ascot Grange team in the role of a Dementia Care Manager.

My passion in dementia care is to support the care team in providing the unique and highly skilled person-centred care for those living with dementia, to maintain a fulfilling, meaningful and dignified lifestyle in a safe and friendly environment.

At Signature of Ascot, we understand that sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference
