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 Chris Argyrou and I am the Registered and Nursing Manager at Autumn Gardens.
I have been working in older people’s care since 1993. I first joined Anastasia Lodge as the Registered Manager in 2008 and moved to become the Registered Manager at Autumn Gardens in 2012.
When I started nursing, I worked in many different areas both in Cyprus and the UK and I found my calling when I joined my first nursing home. It is a real pleasure caring for older people. They are so inspirational and have such determination and drive. My primary goal is to have a good team, to deliver high quality care and to comply with the CQC. I also take pride in helping my team to develop and progress in their careers.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and in particular watching my grandson play football, especially when he scores!
Hello, my name is Martina De Vizia and I am the Residential 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 Residential 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.
