Q-Club

Q-Club

Welcome to Vesta Lodge Q Club. Open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm, our St Albans 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). 

Our Q Club Co-ordinator at Vesta Lodge is Ella Taylor, and she would be delighted to welcome your family member into our St Albans club. Ella says “Our Q Club is a social club for the older person. We pride ourselves on listening to the views of our members with regard to activities and any needs they may have. We offer a variety of activities, including our own take on the game show “the wheel of fortune”, as well as tasting sessions with tropical fruits, cakes and chocolate! We also offer table top gardening, general knowledge and musical quizzes, and snack making, with past recipes having included eton mess!  We have a jovial atmosphere, with laughter, fun and conversation, and our team make sure each of our members are included in all that we do.”

Coni Anang
Home Manager

People are especially important to me, I love seeing the difference training, development and praise make in the lives of our staff, who in turn make our residents safe and happy.

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.

Ebunoluwa Awofisayo
Deputy Manager

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.

Ecko Eghobamien
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.

Solomon Florinel
Housekeeping Manager

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.

Amila Blazevic
Administrator

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.

The Receptionist plays a key part in keeping the home operating as it should. Organisational and communication skills are a must for a Receptionist as it’s these qualities that allow them to make life in the home easier for their colleagues and residents.
