Welcome to The Mead Q Club. Open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm, our Borehamwood club has been designed to provide care during the day for older people who are still living in their own home or with family, perhaps with the support of either a professional carer or family and friends.

This service is ideal if you are caring for a loved one but need to take some time off for yourself or just want to know that your loved one is being fully taken care of for the day

The Q Club is situated within a beautifully refurbished conservatory style day room which benefits from lovely views of the garden.

The team aim to provide a calming yet stimulating and safe environment and organise a wide range of activities for guests to enjoy including arts and crafts sessions, cooking, gardening, board games and more.

Meet our team


Alison King
Home Manager

The Home Manager runs all aspects of the home and ensures that the 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.


Ivan Panev
Deputy Home Manager
I started my career in August 2017 as a Care Assistant and I progressed to Deputy Home Manager, passing through all positions until my current one.
I believe in people’s values and respect. I love working with people from different cultures. Open and honest communication is very important to me, and I found that Rhythm Of Life is a unique approach to providing person-centered care.


Lisa Humphries
Chef Manager
The Chef Manager organises every aspect of the catering operation and provides a safe, nutritious, quality service to our residents using freshly produced food. With a hands-on role, leading a team, they provide a quality catering service and help create a warm and friendly atmosphere for our residents. Working with our residents they help to create menus to meet their needs and suit their tastes. They also create and provide fine dining events, using Quantum Care’s award-winning Dining Club concept.


Caroline Perkis
Housekeeping Manager
I enjoy working with and being with residents and the challenges I find in my role. I like the teamwork aspect of my work.



Susan Humphries
The Administrator will focus on the smooth running of the home; in whatever area they may be needed. From greeting visitors to recruiting, the Administrator is present in many aspects of life in the home, even if you don’t always see them! To be successful in the role, our Administrators have to be flexible and calm, able to multi-task and always keen to take on a new challenge. It’s often the Administrator that brings the IT skills to a home, helping them to keep everything organised. Above that though, Administrators are communicators, able to speak confidently and listen closely to everyone from Managers and Care Workers to visitors and residents.
