Meet the team

Marta Carter

Home Manager

‘I enjoy looking after the residents and supporting them in maintaining their independence, I also like the chance to meet so many different people’ – Marta Carter

The Home Manager runs all aspects of the home, taking care of the business side of things and ensuring their home provides a high standard of care. While each Manager brings their own flair to the role, they do all have some qualities in common, especially their leadership and organisational skills. The role is very varied, involving plenty of resident interaction alongside the more administrative work to keep the home running smoothly. Our Managers typically hold, or are working towards, a relevant qualification and have proven experience in caring for older people. 

Jade Fang

Deputy Home Manager

The Deputy Home Manager shares responsibility with the Home Manager for running the home. Deputy Managers will each bring their unique skill set to the home, some offering more assistance with the business side of things while others focus largely on care. However, whether they look at it from a business or care perspective, the focus of the Deputy is always to ensure that their home is offering the very best quality of life for our residents. Experienced and either holding or working towards their qualifications, Deputy Home Managers are capable and driven to providing the best of everything for their residents.

Marian Sutton

Housekeeping Manager

‘I enjoy interacting with the residents and knowing I have made a difference to their living environment’ – Marion Macdonald

Keeping the team of Housekeepers running as it should is the Housekeeping Manager. Supervising and organising their teams is just part of it as these Managers work alongside them to keep the home clean and inviting. The comfort of residents is the most important thing to our Housekeeping Managers which is why they work so hard to create an environment in which residents can’t help but feel at home. Multi-tasking and communication skills are some of the most important of the Housekeeping Manager’s qualities as they and their team create a home where resident’s dignity is never compromised and independence is always encouraged.  Our Housekeeping Managers ensure that all areas of our home are safe, clean, well maintained and presented in a way to create a warm and homely environment.  They have an important role in maintaining our infection, prevention and control standards to make sure our residents stay well.

Ingrid Lucas

Q Club Day Care Manager

"Hi, I am Ingrid, I have been a part of Quantum Care since 30.03.2015 starting as a care worker and I have been in various roles since.

My current role is that of Q Club Manager at Bushey Day Centre, I love this role and my team are amazing. It was definitely the best choice in light of the changes of 2019.

We have a diverse clientele who we enjoy helping feel like it is their home from home.

I will go that extra mile to ensure all new clients feel happy when at the centre. We have a client who loves to walk doing 16k steps easy a day.  When she arrived, she was very unsettled and had to do two half days, on leaving on the second half-day I promised that we could go for a walk if she wanted on her next visit. Low and behold, on her next visit she reminded me that I promised to take on a walk. Now we have a routine, if she wants to go we set off for at least an hour. She does not realise this is helping us both - she is helping me to get fit!

On one of our hilly walks, I must have been breathing heavy, my lady asked me if I was okay, then she said "well if you are struggling then we should do even more walking" - we were laughing so hard!

My staff and Clients will also tell you I love music and dancing and can move my body." - Ingrid Lucas
