Portobello Place - Our People

Welcome to Portobello Place, a brand-new care home near Chesham offering Luxury Living & Exceptional Care

I’m so glad you’ve found Portobello Place, as I’m really proud of what this stunning care home in Chartridge, near Chesham, has to offer everyone who lives and works here.

Every single person in the Portobello Place team has the wellbeing of the people living here at the heart of all that they do – the standard of care that we provide and the lifestyle you can have here are unlike anything you’ll find in any other residential care home in Buckinghamshire.

We pay all our staff above the living wage as we value the part that every person plays at Portobello Place and we also employ 50% more staff than the average care home. Because of this, we attract the best staff and the people living here benefit massively as we’re able to offer the best care in a happy and homely environment – it’s all about giving you a fantastic quality of life.

Last but not least, we offer culinary delights from a top-class chef and sous-chef. Our in-house kitchen team of married couple, the Manzanos, have won awards for their creative dishes and it’s a pleasure to be able to provide such wonderful food every single day to the people living here and all our lovely guests.

I really hope to see you soon. All the best,

Jan Lovett, General Manager

I have a wealth of experience in Administration and HR. Working in the Care sector for the past 5 years have been the most rewarding of my career. No two days are the same and enjoy working in an environment that allows me to use all of my communication skills with residents and families too.

This home is amazing, the people that work here are outstanding and the care they provide is also outstanding. We, as a family, were made to feel so welcome, they can’t do enough for the family or the residents, nothing is too much for them.
