Here to care

Ann Andrew

Our team of dedicated carers is led by owner and resident manager Ann Andrew

Ann has been in the care business for over 20 years and has 4 care homes.

Mrs Julie Jakuba

Julie Jakuba

Deputy manager Julie Jakuba assists Ann in the running of Southfield, has 20 years experience, a level 4 NVQ and registered Manager Award.


Additional Staff

There are 18 senior carers and care assistants, all of whom have between level 2 and level 4 NVQ and bring a wealth of experience within the care profession to Southfield.

All are involved in continuous professional development, attending regular training courses to keep abreast of the latest advances in care practice.

We are acutely aware of the importance of familiarity and continuity in care and so we never employ ‘agency’ staff. All our staff work as a team, are employed directly and there are always two care staff members available through the night.

Each resident has one staff member who works most closely with them as a ‘key worker’. They are responsible for monitoring, reviewing and co-ordinating the resident’s individual care plans. Key workers are offered regular supervision by the manager, who has responsibility for chairing reviews and for communicating with outside professionals, who may also be involved with particular residents.

    Three Decades Of Care At

    Southfield is celebrating 30 years as a dedicated residential care home. The house was originally transformed from a family home and developed to care for the elderly in 1985 by then owners David and Marita Blackwell. The couple converted and extended the original 90 year old property in 1992 into a purpose-built care home to tend to the needs of 15 residents.
