I first joined Signature in 2018 joining their soon-to-open home in Chertsey.  I am now delighted to be here at Reigate Grange, a stunning home within walking distance of the historic Reigate market town centre.

My role involves meeting prospective new residents and their families and guiding them through the often emotional decision of choosing their next home. As well as getting out and about in the community building relationships, I  am also a Dementia Ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society and hold regular  Dementia Friends Information Sessions which are open to the public. I feel very privileged to be part of this wonderful team who goes above and beyond every day caring for and enhancing the life of each one of our residents.

Residential Care Manager

Megan Leigh

I joined Signature at Reigate Grange in September 2018 as an Activities Co-ordinator after graduating from university where I studied Psychology. During the Covid pandemic, I transitioned into the care team and found a job I am truly passionate about. I soon progressed to become a Care Supervisor and then in December 2023, I was invited to take the role of Acting Residential Care Manager. My official appointment to the position of Residential Care Manager came in February 2024. It’s a huge privilege to be able to develop my career from within Reigate Grange and to provide continuity for our deserving residents. I’m committed to the values that Signature holds and proud of the care we deliver on a daily basis.

Dementia Care Manager

Mariyana Storey

My name is Mariyana. I first joined Signature in October 2020 as a Care Supervisor in the dementia care community. I was then promoted to the role of Dementia Care Manager. If there is one thing that I’ve learned in my years of working with people living with dementia it is this: The happiest and most fulfilled people are those who devote themselves to something bigger and more unique. There’s nothing more rewarding than helping the most vulnerable people to continue to live their lives with dignity and respect.

Activities Supervisor

Karen Matthews

I was welcomed to Signature at Reigate Grange in August 2023. I have worked in care for 9 years previously in another Signature care home. I have worked in both the Care and Activities departments. Activities are my passion as I enjoy being able to spend time with residents and listening to their life stories. If I am able to make our residents happy and smile, I feel I have successfully fulfilled my job.

Night Care Manager

Abbey Odumeso

I joined Reigate Grange as Night Care Manager in April 2018, driven by a deep commitment to supporting older people to live life to the full. I bring with me a diverse experience with a background spanning Dementia Care, Mental Health Services, Learning Disabilities Care, Residential Care, and Domiciliary Care. Having worked in many roles across the sector including being a chef, customer service executive and carer I achieved my Level 5 NVQ in Health & Social Care and was successful in a promotion to Manager. Beyond work, I enjoy football, rice and beans, Westlife melodies and love Guinness and White Chocolate!

Head Chef

Ancuta Tiriteu

Born and raised in Romania in a family that loves food I became passionate about food and I love cooking with excellent quality fresh ingredients. I attended a private college in culinary arts in 2013 and I was classically trained by one of the best French Chef. For the past 10 years I have had the pleasure the work and cook in luxury establishments. I love cooking traditional British Food, and I also enjoy exploring other cuisines with Mediterranean being one of my favourite. To me, there is no great chef without a great team, you must have people around you who understand the same “ music “, they need you but you need them desperately if you want to achieve the excellence.  In the past few years I have focused my personal life more towards healthy food choices and I enjoy a very healthy diet.
