Meet the Team
We would like to introduce you to the Moorlands Lodge team.
I have been working in the Health and social sector for over thirty years, inclusive of serving nine years in the Queen Alexander’s Royal Naval Nursing Service.
I have developed extensive experience in Oncology, Chemotherapy, Dementia and Care of the Elderly. I am passionate about providing a high-quality service and developing high performance teams within the service.
This helps ensure Moorlands Lodge is not only an exceptional Home for our residents to live in, but an exciting and supportive environment for the Team to work in.
Care Services Manager
Care Services Manager
Janyce qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1984. Having spent the large percentage of her career in the community Janyce has also worked as a nurse in the pharmaceutical industry where she provided training on respiratory care for nurses in primary care. Janyce moved into the Criminal Justice Setting in 2006 setting up and leading the Forensic Nursing Team working in Dorset. In 2010 She moved on to become a manager for the Metropolitan Police Service ensuring her teams looked after the health and welfare of detained persons in police custody, and become part of the custody teaching team in relation to health needs.
In 2015 Janyce moved back into the elder care sector.. She demands high standards from her team and works on the ethos that she would not expect anyone to do anything that she herself is not prepared to do. She is very reflective on the contributions everyone she has been and continues to be involved with have made to society within their lifetimes and believes it is a privilege to assist them in their twilight years.
Janyce is delighted to have joined the outstanding team at Moorlands Lodge and hopes to bring her nursing, management and teaching experience to continue implementing the excellent care model already in place.
Client Liaison Manager
Client Liaison Manager
I have been working within the Care Industry for the past few years.
My role as Client Liaison Manager enables me to show what Moorlands Lodge has to offer seniors who feel they now need care, support and ultimately a fun lifestyle.
I am passionate about helping people make the right choices when looking at their options for the next stage in their lives.
Moorlands Lodge has a wonderfully supportive team which is a privilege to be a part of.
I started working in HR over 15 years ago and qualified to CIPD Level 7, in 2010.
My previous roles have been in either Healthcare or Security and have been very much HR generalist roles in an advisory capacity.
I have gained a lot of experience over the years, particularly in Healthcare, and have faced many challenges within the different organisations I have worked in.
I started at Moorlands in January 2018 and am very happy to be part of a very supportive and friendly team.
With a wealth of experience, Linda and her team are responsible for ensuring our residents lead a full and enriched life while living at Moorlands Lodge. A comprehensive activities schedule, as well as trips out are provided and Linda is passionate about offering our residents a full and varied programme seven days a week, including evenings, to appeal to all needs and abilities.
I am a fully qualified chef with over 19 years' experience in catering and have filled various roles including fine dining, hotel and banqueting, contract catering and the Gastro pub sectors. I am proud to have cooked for the athletes at the Summer Olympics in Sydney and the Winter Olympics in Canada as well as the England Rugby Team, Muhammad Ali and Bill Gates.
My aim here at Moorlands is to utilise my skills to produce a high standard of food that's varied, nutritious and suits all dietary requirements using locally sourced produce.
I fell in love with Hospitality when I started working in pub kitchens at the age of fifteen. I truly found my passion when my experience allowed me to take a leading role in Front of House operations and I began working through various sectors including pubs, Michelin star restaurants, events and hotel operations. Every role and environment I experienced spurred me on to squeeze more out of the industry, and in 2010 I graduated from the University of Surrey with an honours degree in International Hospitality Management.
Six years ago, I became Restaurant Manager of Moorlands Lodge and the challenge of bringing a five-star Food and Beverage service to the Care Industry has become a labour of love and satisfaction.
To be in a position to support nutritional health and provide an environment that makes our Residents feel warm, safe and dignified is one I am truly thankful for.
