General Manager

Victoria Forsythe

I am a registered General nurse with over 25 years of experience in both the NHS and independent healthcare sector.

Having occupied senior leadership roles with both independent owner proprietors and larger corporate groups I feel privileged to have enjoyed a full and varied career working with vulnerable people requiring care and support, with their healthcare challenges such as Acquired Brain Injury, Complex Nursing Needs and Dementia.
As a qualified registered manager and professional trainer, I strive to support, coach and mentor her compassionate team to deliver exceptional, individualised care and support packages, with the aim of exceeding expectations of the home’s residents and their loved ones.  Dignity, respect and choice are key components in our mission.

I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to lead the team at Elton House and look forward to welcoming you into our community.

Dementia Care Manager

Claire Grant

Before joining Signature, I  worked in the health care sector for over 15 years.
Within this time, I have developed my skills in leadership and management and really enjoy working within the care sector because of the genuine passion I have to care for the wonder that is our elderly generation.
I do believe that all of our residents deserve nothing but the best! As Dementia Care Manager at Signature Elton House, it is my responsibility to ensure that our Residents are delivered the highest standards of person-centred care and that they are supported to live a fulfilling and happy life whilst living with Dementia.

Care Services Manager

Amy Higham

I have been in the care sector for over 15 years and 9 of those have been as a qualified Nurse. I started out as a healthcare assistant, then promoted to senior carer then I completed my General Nursing training in 2009.
I have had the privilege of working in private healthcare and the NHS. Since qualifying as a Registered Nurse I have worked the majority of my career within District Nursing, my most recent position was Community Nursing Sister, both in Watford and Luton. During my time I have gained invaluable knowledge and skills and I have worked with some amazing professionals who have helped me become the nurse I am today.
I love being a nurse and I am very passionate about providing excellent care to my residents and their families. I have been very privileged to have been given this opportunity to work with Signature.

Client Liaison Manager

Sandeep Nandhra-Gourlay

I am the first point of contact for both seniors and their families enquiring about care options. I am proud to invite people to take a tour of our community and make sure they leave with all the relevant information, having experienced Signature in action. The most rewarding aspect is supporting both families and seniors by being able to guide and counsel them on what can be an emotional experience. I feel privileged to help in the journey towards making the decision to join our community and then, seeing new residents flourish and make new friends  is the ultimate reward.

Residential Manager

Orla Ford

I’ve been in the care sector for 22 years. The joy of meeting new families and making a positive contribution to the lives of each and every one of our residents is truly rewarding.
Each resident is special and unique to all of us and I strive to ensure their lives are fulfilled to the best of their abilities. I have the honour of leading a fabulous and compassionate team of carers with many years of experience. I feel very blessed being part of the Signature family and I am confident that we are able to make such a difference in crucial moments of an individual’s journey, whether it’s a lifestyle choice or a care need.
My experience has taken me on a training pathway with medication and manual handling and I am looking forward to being the internal trainer for Elton house.
