Rose Garden

A unique approach to care

Rather than segregating care types, residents live in mixed groups, which has been shown to improve mental stimulation, so residents keep their skills for longer. It is this unique approach that sets Rose Garden apart.

Deputy Manager

Ana Rita brings enthusiasm and dedication to her role as Deputy Manager of Rose Garden, having worked on the site since Olive Tree House first opened in 2016 she brings a wealth of experience. Ana is from Portugal and says how much she loves the sun and hot weather! Before moving to the UK Ana had a career in real estate.

The decision to embark on a career in social care was made after Ana cared for her grandparents, both of whom were diagnosed with dementia. Ana took time to educate herself about dementia and how she could best support them. After Ana’s grandparents passed away, she moved to the UK and started working in a nursing home. Ana’s career quickly progressed from care assistant to team leader as she completed her NVQ Levels 2 and 3 in Adult Social Care. Four years ago, Ana became the trainee deputy manager of Olive Tree House completing all her training under the mentorship of the home’s manager, Amanda including obtaining the NVQ Level 5 in Management and Leadership in Social Care.

The experience of caring for her grandparents changed her career path, she says it made her realise how much she enjoys helping others and making them feel happy and comfortable.

Catherine Crawshaw

Catherine Crawshaw

Regional Resident Liaison Manager – Western Region

Catherine has worked in sales and marketing her whole career, after graduating with a degree in Textile Management she worked in Corporate Workwear for many years. Catherine’s first role in the care sector was working with a disability charity that ran nursing homes and enablement projects for young adults. While her two children were younger, she joined her husband in his estate agency, but was delighted to return to the care sector in 2020 and now cannot imagine doing anything else.

Catherine’s role with Allegra is to support residents and their families as they explore care options. Working with the teams in the individual homes she ensures that during every stage from initial enquiry through to moving in with us every question is answered, and we offer the reassurance needed for the next chapter in our resident’s life. It is important for our residents to remain part of the community in which will have lived for years, often all their lives, so the other part of this role is connecting with local community groups, charities and organisations. Catherine has said that working for Allegra with their groundbreaking household model means we are offering a home with compassion and care whilst ensuring residents are retaining their independence and quality of life.

Out of work Catherine enjoys baking, gardening and walking the family Labrador. The children are older now, but still keep her busy!
