Aug 2018: Baycroft Grays Farm Road celebrates first birthday!


A year has passed since Baycroft Grays Farm Road first opened its doors and welcomed their first resident on 29th August 2017.

Baycroft has been home to 58 residents over the past 365 days. Their stay has been accompanied by a variety of things to ensure it is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible:

20,000 cups of tea
258 bottles of prosecco
730 bowls of the chef’s special tiramisu
520 haircuts
300 singalongs
150 card games
And much more.

To mark this anniversary, a celebratory event was organised on 29th August 2018.  It was a day of food, drinks and activities for Baycroft residents, their families, staff, and all the people who have supported Baycroft’s efforts to provide an excellent service over the past year.

Staff and residents who had been working or living at Baycroft Grays Farm Road since last year were recognised as founder members. All founder residents received an engraved photo frame with a picture of them with their family, which was taken at the event.

At this milestone, they also welcome a new General Manager to the home. Shirley Emilio has joined Baycroft and brings with her over 25 years’ of experience within the care industry and a passion to provide the best care and lifestyle for residents.

Shirley said:

“It’s a complete privilege to join the team at Orpington and be part of this exciting brand which is bringing another level and elegance to support in care.”

Baycroft will be holding Meet the Manager sessions over the next few weeks, so keep any eye on the website for more details soon.
