Registered Manager of Cheval Roc
Chantal started her career in nursing in the ’80s. Right from the outset she had a keen interest in elderly care and undertook the ENB Teaching and ENB Care of the Elderly qualifications. She then spent the majority of her career working within orthopaedics and trauma whilst she raised her family. Once the children were teens she again focused on her career and was promoted to Senior Orthopaedic and Trauma Sister in 2005. As part of this role she acted as Site Manager of the JGH which covered many roles including bed manager, infection control, workforce coordinator and off island emergency transfers. Chantal enjoys expanding her knowledge and holds a BSc (Hons) in Nursing Practice and a PgDip in Biomechanics. She has presented her dissertation research on heel pressures to international audiences including Australia, New Zealand, Malta and the UK. More recently she has developed a keen interest in dementia and in 2017 won two awards for her work on dementia at the JGH. Chantal decided in 2019 she would like to follow her interest in the older person and was delighted to be given the opportunity as Registered Manager of Cheval Roc.
With a passion for continually improving practice and standards, Chantal is proud to have achieved truly compassionate, homely and person centred care at Cheval Roc. The visiting booth, resident pets and piano lessons are a few of her innovative solutions to challenges that occur, fostering the residents personal growth and creativity and keeping seniors engaged and active. Chantal believes building a strong team culture and valuing everyone is key and leads to exceptional care and services being delivered.
