Q

Get to know Toby Parr our Care Home Manager here at Glenfield Woodlands…

Length of time at Glenfield Woodlands:

Almost 3 years. Glenfield Woodlands attracted me due to its size. After spending the majority of my career supporting 70+ Bed Care Homes I thought it was time for something new. Due to its size, Glenfield has the ability to charm and draw you in. It really is a home. Managing a service of this kind is unique, you feel very close to the people you support. Therefore the ability to provide truly person cantered care is possible. Having the ability to support people in this way, was the reason why I started working in the care sector.

Fun fact / memory:

I love to cook and host dinner parties for friends and family. I find this a good outlet to unwind after a busy week. Good food and company bring people together. On one occasion, whilst hosting I did burn all the food. Therefore I ordered it in from a local takeaway, refried it, and passed it of as my own cooking….no, I didn’t get away with it! However the table wine did help people forget…!

My ethos as Glenfield’s Manager:

This career certainly found me, no other way around it… I’ve always been a caring person, in everything that I do. Personally, one of my primary focuses is ensuring my residents have a voice, which is listened to, respected, and reflected in how they want to live at our Care Home.

Biggest achievement since working at Glenfield Woodlands:

Remaining Covid-19 free throughout the pandemic which resulted in the Development of a Covid-19 Impact Assessment and Planning Toolkit, shared with the Leicester City Council and CQC (to help aid and support care services locally and nationally).
