Hello, my name is Davison Chimenya and I am the Operations Manager at Autumn Gardens and Anastasia Lodge. I joined the team in 2016 having worked with the homes for a number of years before this through my roles in the Care Homes Assessment and Treatment Team and the District Nurse Service for Enfield.
I have a strong clinical and operational background in general health and management of chronic illnesses, delivering patient-centred care in both primary and secondary care settings.
I have a proven track record of delivering quality care and managing CQC compliance. I have vast management experience from the NHS and key business skills gained from various engagements with the private sector. My key attributes are performance management, delivering people-centred care and service development.
I have a passion in elderly care and team development, focusing on continual improvement for the benefit of our residents. Outside work I enjoy events management, watching football and travelling.
Hello, my name is Martina De Vizia and I am the Registered Manager at Autumn Gardens.
I have been working at Autumn Gardens since 2009. I immediately fell in love with the environment and residents and I became determined to build a career in Health and Social Care.
I soon became Senior Care Assistant and then worked my way up to Head Carer, Deputy Manager and later Quality Assurance Manager. As the Registered Manager, I am proud to take part in ensuring that care quality at Autumn Gardens is up to our very high standard.
As a Manual Handling Trainer, Dementia, SOVA and MCA and DOLS trainer, I take pride in helping my team to develop their skills and increase their confidence in performing their daily duties.
Outside of work, I dedicate all my time to my family, especially my young daughter who is the apple of my eye.
