Lynn says that Woodstock is a very homely and happy place to work:
“Hello, my name is Lynn Clemons and I am the Head Chef at Woodstock. I started as the Weekend Cook in October 2000, where I then had the opportunity to work full time as Cook. The training has improved since I started, as we now have the same training as all our care staff including Dementia, SOVA and Moving and Handling. This has given me a greater understanding of the people we care for; I enjoy my job making sure my residents eat well and enjoy their meals.
Woodstock is a very homely and happy place to work. The food we provide has massively improved and our residents have more choice – even the puréed meals have improved with the use moulds and piping techniques. The puréed meals we serve our residents on a soft food diet retain the attractive appearance of the regular meals we serve everyone else.
We have a very supportive team here at Woodstock – from the managers to the care staff – we work as a team. The best part about working with and leading my Kitchen staff is to making sure that our residents are happy with the catering services we provide. We also strive to ensure their families are happy that their mums, dads, and grandparents are content and well looked after.”
