CARE HOME, BOURNEMOUTH, DORSET
CARE HOME, BOURNEMOUTH, DORSET
A former ‘Grand Gentlemen’s Residence’, Windsor Court is superbly located within easy strolling distance of Bournemouth town centre and world-famous sea front. Retaining the high-ceilinged elegance of the Victorian era, the building has been extensively and sympathetically refurbished to provide the first class accommodation and facilities associated with modern care provision of the highest level.
I joined Windsor Court as a Senior Care Assistant but within the year progressed to the Support Manager. There are great opportunities for career progression and I am being encouraged to undertake my Diploma level 5.
I was inspired and passionate about end of life care by my Nan who I cared for at the end of her life. It’s especially important to ensure the emotional side of this journey is very special for everyone concerned and involved and to ensure people receive the best possible care and the upmost dignity when they pass.
I really enjoy working at Windsor Court, I work with a great team where everyone helps each other, there is very good communication and we are just like one big family. The training provided is very good and I receive great support from my manager Lesley

I’ve been working at Windsor Court Care Home since 2013 and continue to enjoy every minute of my time here. I love what I do, caring for people, we do this at Windsor Court with passion, dignity and kindness.
I originate from Poland and came to England with my husband and my young family in 2010. Whilst I was an experienced carer I had a lot to learn especially grasping and understanding the English language. I have been supported to develop my understanding of English and my knowledge in care, achieving a Diploma 2 in Health & Social Care/working with the elderly.
The management team are very supportive changing my working arrangements from days to nights when a medical condition I live with didn’t suit me working days. I am very proud and happy to be part of a team of people who really care for the residents and colleagues
Hi, I have been part of the activities team working at Windsor Court since November 2018. Previously I worked at another care home managed by Beritaz care for 2 years.
Applying for an activities organisers role was a whole new career for me, using skills from my previous life knowledge and experience. I feel privileged to provide a variety of activities to support resident’s individual interests and hobbies, no two days are the same and the greatest gift is seeing the residents happy, I am truly able to say I have the best job!
I am part of a team and organisation that really cares about one another, the support and training you receive is very good. If you feel you are ready for a change in career you couldn’t choose a more supportive organisation than the Beritaz Care Group to work for.
I have been working at Windsor Court Care Home since November 2018. Prior to this I was a live in carer, whilst I enjoyed the work it was lonely and isolating at times. I was looking for a life after work and Bournemouth was just the ticket!
The residents are great, I learn something new from or about them every day, and you never get bored. I really like working as part of a team at Windsor Court it’s great at all levels of responsibility, everyone is supportive of one another and we encourage each other to always be at our best, which has added benefits for the residents.
You are always encouraged to increase your knowledge; I have completed my Diploma level 2 and working towards level 3 in Elderly Care. I am now being given opportunities to learn more about the role of a Senior Carer
I have been working as Windsor Courts Administrator since 2008, previous to this I worked in sales, charity fundraising and as an office supervisor.

I enjoy the variety my role brings and no two days are the same. The residents, the staff team and relatives are what make it enjoyable, the camaraderie and the support of one another makes for a really good place to work.

Since coming to England in 2006 I have only worked in Windsor Court, prior to this I had lived and worked in the Philippines, graduating as a Civil Engineer in 1984. This included 20 years in housing and highways development.
I get great satisfaction and feel really happy when I fix things for the residents; they are always very appreciative of what you do for them. I also appreciate the training I have received which has helped me to understand the culture, ethos and laws of caring for and keeping residents safe
We receive excellent support from the manager and the owner, they look after the residents and staff have done so especially throughout the pandemic, always working hard to do the very best for the residents.
Senior Care Assistant [Nights]
I work as a senior health care assistant on nights, I am a friendly person and like to be around people so I thought I should try working in care, and I love it! I have been working in care ever since and I’m always looking forward to learn more.

Health Care Assistant
Hi I am Ellie-Mae and I have been working at Windsor Court since I left Bournemouth and Poole College in 2016. I studied Health & Social Care and have a strong interest in care. I tried out different areas of social care placements during my time at college but it was working with the elderly I enjoyed the most.
I really enjoy the role of a carer but also enjoy the flexibility of carrying out other roles when there is a need, such as stepping in to help the chef in the kitchen as a kitchen assistant. At the end of the day it’s all about the residents and working together to make sure their needs are being met.
The management team and my colleagues are very supportive of one another; Windsor Court is a really good place to work.

Thank you to the amazing Windsor Court Team. Despite the challenges you continue to be fantastic. As always, professional, respectful and caring and treating my mum as the special person that she is. It is so reassuring to know that my mum is in such safe hands and so well cared for by every single member of the team. You all play your part in making sure that my mum has fun and feels a sense of belonging to such a special community. Words can’t really describe how grateful we are, but thank you for everything you all do.
