Hi there! My name is Lorraine Kingham and I have worked in the care sector for 33 years, starting out as a carer, working my way up to supervisor, then into management. Although a manager for over 20 years, I still enjoy being hands on, as it helps build a good relationship with my customers and their families.
I have worked for corporate companies and franchises and have grown the businesses successfully, both financially and in reputation. However, the personal touch can often get lost on the way. I wanted to put this right by opening my own company – Belgrave Care. Along with my dedicated team, the 50 years of experience between us has enabled us to hit the ground running and I cannot thank people enough for their support.
My person-centred focus has been my driving force and, with my good sense of humour, I always say “If I can make someone laugh it makes my day” and I’m always there to listen.
I am also a semi-professional vocalist – and like to paint in my spare time, as well as being an animal lover.
“I would like to wish Belgrave Care a very successful venture and can say that having dealt with the Director Lorraine Kingham for a number of years in the caring profession I can honestly say the care she provided was excellent.”
Sandra Barnes, Social Care Assessor, CWAC
Hi! I’m Jane Burgess and since coming on board with Belgrave Care as a Carer and Communications Manager, I have never looked back. The company invests in its staff, encouraging them to develop their skills, so I was delighted to be given the trust and support to study and qualify for my NVQ5 in Care in Leadership for Health and Social Care.
This, in combination with several year’s work experience at the General Medical Council and Health & Safety Executive, has helped me to grow with the business, and to be given the opportunity to become Registered Care Manager.
I have taken to this role wholeheartedly as I am so proud to work with a dedicated and enthusiastic Belgrave Care team. I truly believe that if we look after our staff they will look after our customers.
I share the same vision as Lorraine, understanding people’s circumstances and doing what we can to help them stay more independent in their own homes. Every customer is different with their own individual needs so person-centred care is at the heart of everything we do.
Belgrave Care is committed to delivering an excellent service in a traditional way with staff who know what they are doing. Our senior carers are doing a fantastic job of supporting everyone in the field.
Our office is well located at 3 Faulkner Street, Hoole, Chester, where we welcome anyone who has any enquiries about finding care for their relatives and loved ones, or for anyone who wants to join our friendly team of carers.
I too love animals and am interested in current affairs, history, reading, writing and running.
Entering our seventh year with Hoole move
Belgrave Care’s story continues as we enter our seventh successful year as a care provider.
We’re also delighted to have moved from our Hoole Road office to 3 Faulkner Street where
we are closer to the community.
Belgrave Care has established itself well in the local community with a reputation of being a
good care provider, enabling people to stay independent in their own homes. We take away
their worries and concerns so that they can enjoy their lives and give peace of mind to their
relatives, knowing that we are providing the best possible person-centred care for them.
Care Manager Jane Burgess said: “We’re delighted with the wonderful feedback that we
have received from our customers in the last six years. No-one could have foreseen the
huge challenge we faced with Covid-19 but Belgrave Care took extra measures to ensure
that all of our customers, carers and office staff have always been fully protected.
“We know how hard our carers work so to help them with the increased cost of living, we
have increased their pay to an hourly rate, as well as mileage. We also recognise that our
customers are faced with the same economic challenges so our rates are very competitive.”
Director Lorraine Kingham said: “These are exciting times as we have relocated from Hoole Road to
Faulkner Street where we now in the heart of the local community. I cannot thank people
enough for their support as we enter our seventh year of business. We have created a
happy, supportive environment for our carers and customers and we welcome anyone
wanting a change of job to pop in and have an informal chat with us.
