About Pinewood Lodge
About Pinewood Lodge
The day care service is aimed at those who may benefit from a little extra support and the opportunity to meet new people and try new things with us. To find out more about day care, take a look at the Q Club at Pinewood Lodge.
With a wide range of communal areas including lounges, cosy corners, dining rooms, themed areas and more, there are plenty of opportunities to socialise and spend your time with others, but you are welcome to simply enjoy the privacy of your own room. All bedrooms are fully furnished and include en-suite facilities.
At Pinewood Lodge, our team of Activity Care Workers are on hand to plan a wide range of activities for you to enjoy. Within the home, you will find a Best Friends Café, where you can enjoy tea, coffee and homemade cakes with visiting family and friends.
The home runs a number of clubs to suit the interests of the residents, including a boys club on a Saturday afternoon, a knitting circle, a Friday evening pub night, a gardening club as well as regular movie nights, so you are sure to find something to get involved with.

Welcome to Pinewood Lodge Q Club. Open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm, our Oxhey club offers day guests the opportunity to make new friends, whilst taking part in a choice of activities.
Most of our day care centres are attached to one of our care homes which means that many of the facilities available to our full time residents are also available to our day care guests - such as a visit to the hairdresser (booked directly with the centre).
The Pinewood Q Club team would be delighted to welcome your family member into our Oxhey club. Within the purpose built Q Club which is designed to suit the needs of our members, they offer a host of activities from games, exercises, music, cooking, quizzes and more. The team also enjoy celebrating special occasions such as birthdays and nationwide events, and do their best to help members with any day to day issues, such as booking an appointment with their GP”
Meet our team
I enjoy the challenges and variety to the work I do and like to keep busy
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.
The Deputy Home Manager shares responsibility with the Home Manager for running the home. Deputy Manager’s will each bring their own 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.
I am the Chef Manager at Pinewood Lodge, I have worked here since 2013 started as a carer looking after residents and know I get to look after them in a different way by ensuring they have deliciously cooked meals daily, and ensuring their nutritional needs are being met. I get great satisfaction from this.
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.
“I am the House Keeping manager, I have been at Pinewood Lodge since 2016, I started as a casual Handyman, I developed my skills and moved my way up to Housekeeping Manager, where I motivate a team of excellent housekeepers”
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.
I am the administrator for Pinewood lodge, I love my job and the fact that no two days are the same. I have worked for Quantum care – Pinewood Lodge for just over 6 years, I started as a carer in 2012 I love working in care.
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.
