Welcome to Alexandra Court Care Home
Hello, my name is Lisa Bickerton and I would like to introduce myself as the newly appointed Care Manager at Alexandra Court.
From early on my intention was to pursue a career in care and as such I was keen to enter into a college course from high school to enable me to do just that. I gained my GNVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care at Blackpool and Fylde College in 2003. As well as achieving the qualification I was given the opportunity to take part in placements in all aspects of care from young adults with learning difficulties to caring for the elderly.
Having achieved this qualification I gained employment with the Local Authority, firstly as a Care Assistant and then further developing my career by achieving the NVQ Level 4 in Leadership and Management. After just 2 short years as a Care Assistant I was promoted to a management position. I have since remained a Manager for the past 13 years and I enjoy this role immensely as I am able to not only offer my care and support to the people in my care but lead others in doing so and shape the care that is provided by the service I manage.
Alexandra Court comprises of 34 apartments, 3 of which are available to accommodate couples. The apartments afford the residents the opportunity to enjoy independent living whilst there are relaxed, beautifully decorated communal areas where residents and the families, if they so wish, can enjoy a range of social activities. The home also has large, well maintained, private grounds for the residents to enjoy in fine weather.
The team and I would be delighted to show you around our home at any time and discuss you or your loved ones individual care needs. I look forward to welcoming you to Alexandra Court.
