If You Want Genuine Care From Kind People, Then Meet Hopton’s Staff Team

On Hand All Day, Every Day! 

Our Staff Team

Hopton Cottage Care Home is one of the best designed care homes around. What makes us even more special is our staff team.

When choosing Hopton you’re also choosing a group of people – our staff. They’re every bit as important to us as they will be to your Mum.

A founding principle of ours is to make sure your Mum is always at the heart of our service & is treated as an individual. We don’t cut corners & we never cut costs.

Our management team led by Joseph Martin have nearly 50 years of experience between them working to provide care for older people. 

Joseph Martin, General Manager

Melanie Igo, Care Manager for Creenway Cottages

Suzanne Prentice, Care Manager for Woodend & Riverside Cottages

I’ve learnt from years of experience that it’s absolutely crucial to have a team with a positive mind-set, who feel respected & supported in their vital roles. Let me explain why…

Older people tend to be quite proud & find it hard to ask for help at the best of times. If staff don’t enjoy their work & appear unhappy, then residents will pick up on this. This will make it harder for them to ask for help when it’s really needed.

So Hopton is here to help! We only employ the best people for each & every role. Our staff are all passionate about helping people and want to make a difference. We have staff of all ages & backgrounds.

Staff at Hopton are reminded every day that they are valued members of a team. Our care assistants love coming to work & are passionate about providing kindness & care.

Every member of our team from the chefs to the maintenance men are trained in dementia awareness & buy into our ethos of kindness, friendliness & positivity. 

We have a first-class management team here & a team of fantastic carers who are skilled, patient & always kind.

Our staff recieve the best detailed training programmes. They all have an NVQ care Level 2 qualification & most are qualified to NVQ Level 3. We have our own in house training provided through Aged Care TV & skills for care.

Our staff are paid to receive this training, which means that they are always improving. 

“I was overwhelmed by how pleasant & welcoming the staff were” – Rochele

Our staff work short shifts & have flexible working hours. They will become stable and familiar faces in your Mum’s new life. 

It’s a brilliant team & many of whom have families themselves. They look after our residents as they would want their own parents or loved ones to be looked after.

We also pride ourselves on our home being spotless & operate a personalised laundry and dry-cleaning service led by head housekeeper Alyson Doyle.

Being looked after by someone you know and who knows you is really important at Hopton. Our staff will get to know your favourite meals and activities.

They will help your Mum feel comfortable at all times, just like you would at home. Hopton will feel like their home before they know it. 

We also have our own maintenance team at the home to help with all things from; putting up your pictures, to arranging your furniture and gritting the paths in Winter.

Our kitchen is led by highly qualified & experienced Head Chef Joanne Reid. Along with our other chefs, she helps provide beautiful home-made meals to suit all tastes and dietary requirements.

We also have 2 full time dedicated activities staff who engage our residents with a variety of trips, events and games.

“At Hopton Cottage, we found Mum a place where the environment was
adapted to her needs and the staff always sensitive to them.” – Hazel D

24 Hour Care

Hopton is a residential care home & is fully staffed 24 hours a day. Every room has been designed to offer maximum luxury & comfort, which is available for all to enjoy no matter your age or physical ability. 

Hopton has extra-wide corridors with hand rails throughout & specially designed bath & shower rooms which offer the perfect level of comfort for your Mum. 

>50 of the 60 cottages are on the ground floor & residents don’t need to use steps or ramps at any time. 

Our lovely gardens have walkways constructed from non-slip decorative concrete so Mum can enjoy walks safely all year round.

We offer all the help your Mum needs. Including personal care, managing health concerns, support to get out & about & enjoy activities & social events.

We will work with you & other health professionals to develop a plan of care that is right for your Mum.

Palliative Care

We provide care for people nearing the end of their life but who wish to remain in a familiar & caring environment. We understand how important this is to our families.

Also known as end of life care, we aim to ease suffering & enhance a person’s remaining life to help them live as well as possible with dignity & respect until they die.

We work closely with GPs & district nurses to offer support to relatives during this sad time. The whole service is designed around patients & they can remain involved in their care through residents meetings & all manner of feedback.

As you can see, we have hand-picked the finest staff that are truly caring & trained to take care of your Mum. They are the backbone of our care home.

On top of taking care of our residents, they also organise a wide variety of fun activities & prepare delicious home-made meals. I will talk more about this in my email in 2 days, so make sure to check your inbox then!
