Alison Gray Home Manager Solent

Alison Gray

Home Manager

I joined Future Care Group as Home Manager of Solent Grange in June 2021. I have a passion for providing quality care and encourage feedback from our clients, their loved ones and our staff to ensure we are constantly striving to be the best we can, by understanding the needs and wishes of everyone we encounter.

Other than the beautiful location, what drew me to the home was the welcoming and happy atmosphere. Our team of dedicated staff go above and beyond to promote a person centred service and seek opportunities to incorporate innovative ideas for the benefit of those we care for. I am proud of the busy activities programme we offer and love to see the positive effects this has on our clients and staff.

“Leadership is about being a servant first” – Allen West.

As a trained nurse since 2013, I must say that I have found my true purpose as a professional in taking care of vulnerable adults.

Being a Deputy Manager here, at Solent Grange, makes it possible for me to lead and practice my nursing skills at the same time.

I am elated that my role has given me opportunities to work with my supportive colleagues and take care of our lovely residents which gives me the most rewarding feeling.

It also opens doors for further career advancement and professional development as we are supported with up-to-date, relevant trainings which makes us more competitive in our respective roles, thus ensuring we provide quality care to our clients.

Many of us can relate to the selfless values of care, comfort and compassion when supporting the elderly who have been there for us over the years. Being part of a company that live these core values every day was very important to me when considering Future Care Group as my employer.

My role as Administration Manager at Solent Grange is to oversee office operations in support of the Home Manager and Care staff, ensuring all policies are adhered to and relevant legislation requirements are fully met. This in turn permits the Home to operate effectively and efficiently.

I value the opportunity of being a part of the Future Care Group and delighted to have joined a dedicated, friendly team who are truly passionate about delivering quality care to all of our residents here, at Solent Grange.

Clinical Lead

I joined Solent Grange in February 2021. My role in the home is Clinical Lead which I absolutely love as it gives me the chance to really listen to our residents, their families and support our staff. I feel very proud to be working here, at Solent Grange, as we provide excellent care, support and not to mention a sense of comfort and merriment for our residents and staff. We regularly hold themed parties such as a “Hawaiian themed party”, a “Zoo party” and of course “Halloween and Christmas parties”.

I was born in Sweden but left in my 20’s to explore Spain, where I met my husband, who is British. We moved from London to the Isle of Wight in 2018. It was the best move we have ever done; we love this beautiful little island!

We have three boys and we love spending time together; walking, exercising, swimming, and watching movies. My family is my everything. My days are busy, but I would not want to change anything. I love going to work and it’s a joy when you have a great work-life balance. Solent Grange gives me that.

It is important to me that our residents feel safe and comfortable living at Solent Grange. I like working alongside a team who are committed to delivering a quality life for our residents. My role gives me the opportunity to spend time with our residents and get to know them which I find most rewarding, especially when I have one to one time with them. In my free time away from work I like to relax with my family and enjoy knitting and studying.

I enjoy being the first face people see when they visit Solent Grange, I am always busy as I meet and greet visitors to the home and also answer telephone calls from families and friends to ensure they can communicate with their loved ones. I am always available for our residents for a chat or to answer their questions. It is always nice passing on messages or taking visitors to see their loved ones as they are always so happy when spending time with the people they most care about. Outside of work I keep busy, but when I have the time, I like to relax with my two sons, go to the cinema or walk my gorgeous bulldog.

I assist with the running of the kitchen ensuring our residents have delicious and nutritious meals prepared for them each day. I particularly enjoy the feedback and ideas I receive from the residents as it enables us to create meals they like to eat.  I get satisfaction from knowing our residents find the food we serve tasty. When I am not working in my free time I enjoy going for walks and Deejaying.
