Hello, my name is Davison Chimenya and I am the Operations Manager at Autumn Gardens and Anastasia Lodge.

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 and I immediately fell in love with the environment and residents.


I soon became Senior Care Assistant and then worked my way up to Head Carer, Deputy Manager, Quality Assurance Manager, Residential Manager to my role today as Registered Manager.


As the Registered Manager, I am proud to play a vital role in ensuring that our residents are happy and that care quality at Autumn Gardens is up to our very high standard.


Alongside our residents’ care, it is very important to me that our staff are happy and supported, enabling them to develop their skills, increase in confidence and grow professionally in their specific roles.


Managing Autumn Gardens is incredibly rewarding and enables me to make a positive impact on our residents’ lives every day.


Outside of work, I dedicate all my time to my family, especially my young daughter who is the apple of my eye.
