General Manager

Stewart McGinn

I started my nursing career in the NHS, holding positions in community settings including District Nursing in Rickmansworth & Chorleywood and as a Tissue Viability Specialist Nurse across Hertfordshire, before making the transition to care home management.

Managing and supporting large homes for various companies led to a national commissioning role for 6 years. This involved many hours and miles of travel up and down the country opening new homes from Scotland to Dorset and helping to support homes that needed a little TLC to get them back on track.
Most recently I have undertaken a senior interim role with a domiciliary care provider in Marlow

Senior Client Liaison Manager

Sarah Loveday

It is my role to meet people who are looking at care choices for either themselves or for a loved one, providing advice and guidance at what can be a very difficult and emotional time. I am proud to invite people to look around our lovely community and to see for themselves how our residents’ lives are enhanced with the care and support each person receives.

Care Services Manager

Mihail Gafincu

I am the Care Services Manager at Signature Cliveden Manor, committed to bringing my passion for care and over 25 years of experience in nursing to the next level.  After spending more than two decades in different nursing organisations, I understand what truly drives the passion, compassion and excellence in this profession. It is all about how we interact with people, especially elderly people, and how we understand their needs, as nursing is more than a profession – it is about empathy.

I joined Cliveden Manor as a Nursing Care Manager in March 2018.  I had previously worked in the National Health Service for 23 years, and before that for 2 years in private care. Moving from a senior role in an acute surgical environment in an NHS hospital to a management position in care of the elderly, became a new challenge.  In addition to my nursing experience, I have been a nursing lecturer and a mentor.  I joined Signature fascinated by the model of delivering care in a complex assisted living environment, driven by the same aim: excellence.

Nursing Care Manager

Mihaela Popa

I joined Signature in 2017 after newly qualifying as a nurse. I worked as a senior carer for my first 5 months to ensure I had a good understanding of the workings of the home. I then progressed to being one of our registered nurses for 2 years before being promoted to Nursing Care Manager.
I am driven by my passion for the elderly and providing exceptional care wherever I go. I am truly dedicated to the improvement and advancement of nursing techniques and delivering these in an environment that puts our residents at ease, allows them to have their freedom and enables them to live an enriched life.

Residential Care Manager

Tina Avery

I started my career in retail management and first joined the care sector in 1992, rising to Assistant House Manager in a care home before leaving to start a family.  I then worked in corporate events and the National Trust before joining Cliveden Manor in 2015.  I have had several roles in our lovely home, most recently in business administration & HR, and during this time I have been supported by Signature to gain qualifications in management and a CIPD Level 5.  Working in a care setting is the most rewarding thing I have done.  As Residential Care Manager, my focus is very much on the wellbeing of our residents, as they are supported and cared for by an efficient and professional team.

Dementia Care Manager

Daniella Johnson

I am excited to have started working with Signature in September 2019. I began my career in care in 2008, working as a senior carer in a private care home, going on to lead the Dementia neighbourhood as Coordinator for 5 years.
I am delighted to be a part of the Willows team and look forward to leading my dedicated team to ensure we deliver the best person-centred dementia care, enabling each individual resident to live a full and enriched life on their new journey. I consider myself lucky to share the journey with each person I meet living with Dementia.
Every day is different and to understand the needs of our residents, building relationships with them and keeping in touch with their families, is an important and rewarding job.

Signature is a young and vibrant company providing exceptional facilities and care across each home. I hope to bring fresh, innovative, ideas to improve processes and culture, creating a stable and caring environment where people want to live and work in.

House Keeping

Jo Blatchley-Andrews

For many years I worked cleaning private houses, before joining the team at Cliveden Manor as we opened in 2014.
I started working as a housekeeper and enjoyed the training and work involved in managing the team when our Housekeeping Manager was on leave.
I was delighted to be appointed Housekeeping Manager myself and now lead the team I have been so much a part of over the last five years. I am proud of the high standards we have at Cliveden Manor and how the housekeeping team are very much part of our residents’ lives, building relationships with them and joining in with our activities and events.

Maintenance Manager

Johnny Guerreiro

I worked for a health and safety company in Portugal for 14 years, as a regional services manager. Part of my role was performing health & safety inspections in schools, hospitals and care homes.

Four years ago I moved from Portugal to the UK and started to work in the care sector. Before joining Cliveden Manor, I was the Maintenance Manager of a similar large residential care home.

I am proud to work in our lovely home and my aim is to ensure a safe, compliant and comfortable environment for all our residents, team members and visitors.
