MEET THE TEAM

We would like to introduce you to the Bentley House team.

Nursing Care Manager

Simona Ciuperca

Before joining Bentley House I have worked for Nightingale Hammerson for 5 years, as a Registered General Nurse, later being promoted as Care Manager.
While working for Nightingale Hammerson I have been awarded for my caring and responsible attitude to patients’ care, being awarded “Excellence in Care Award” by London Borough of Barnet in June 2014.

I joined Bentley House in 2015 initially as a Clinical Lead Nurse and shortly been promoted to Nursing Care Manager, having shown myself capable of gaining the trust of the residents and staff and being nominated for Rising Star Award.

Move- In Co-ordinator

Jenny Vanlint 

I have worked in the care sector for the past six years. Firstly in an Administration role and now as the Move-In Co-ordinator for Bentley House. I am passionate to ensure that the residents’ move into their apartment goes smoothly.

From overseeing furniture deliveries to making sure the resident is welcomed into their new home and supported in every way possible.

Head Chef

Tony Henderson

Standing next to my granny was my first memory of food. I would help her with preparing the evening meal for all the family and that started my love of cooking when I realised that I could make people happy just by mixing together a few ingredients.
I then started in the food hospitality industry in the mid-’80s and have over 30 years of experience in hotels, contract catering and banqueting events.
I believe in cooking fresh seasonal ingredients to provide well balanced and creative menus to meet my customer’s expectations.
I have moved to the private care sector to bring my wealth of experience to lead the chef team to higher standards of food delivery.
My wife and I love taking our two Labradors for long walks in the countryside where we live and also enjoy eating out to broaden our food knowledge

Activities Manager

Helen O’Driscoll

I am really looking forward to my newly appointed role here at Bentley House.
I have worked at Bentley House since January 2015. Within the years of working here, I have worked in the care team, gaining an NVQ level 2 in health and social care, and in the restaurant team, where I gained an NVQ level 3 in Hospitality Supervision and Leadership, before becoming an activities assistant leading to my role as activities manager.
I am passionate and creative, especially when it comes to offering a varied and stimulating program of activities.
Working alongside my team, families, friends and visitors we are heading into the future with new ideas, thoughts and ways to make this happen.

Residential Manager 

Jenni Collins

I have worked for Bentley house since 2015.  I started as a night care assistant then moved to the restaurant team as a Restaurant Manager.
Whilst in the restaurant I also did care shifts and got to know the residents’ care needs and personalities before becoming a residential manager in 2018.
I am passionate about our home and residents and intend to stay with the company for many years to come.

Client Liaison Manager

Kendra Bray

As a Client Liaison Manager at Bentley House, it is my responsibility to meet with families who are looking for lifestyle options for themselves or their loved ones, providing advice and guidance during this sometimes difficult and emotional stage in their lives.

My background is within the care industry on a regional level but I am now proud to be a part of the Bentley House family, as this gives me the opportunity to get to know our residents and their families and continue to be a support for them throughout their journey.
