Hi, I am Beverley Simms-Dick and I am Home Manager at Queen Elizabeth House care home in Bickley.
Home for residents
Queen Elizabeth House is an award winning home. We are proud about the ethos of the home which is run ‘for the residents and by the residents’. The staff and the management team take pride in the knowledge that all residents regardless of their cognitive needs have a voice, choice and total control.
The residents are actively involved in the management of the home. From managing the main office, marketing the home, running the weekly shop, to running daily film shows, interviewing staff. The residents also get involved in participating in catering committees, theatre groups, designing the garden, bathroom and all refurbishments within the home. We empower the residents to lead the life of their choice. That includes any likes, dislikes, hobbies and social needs and/or desires they might have.
