We pay all our staff above the living wage as we value the part that every person plays at Portobello Place care home, 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 residential care, respite care and day care in a happy and homely environment – it’s all about giving you a fantastic quality of life here in our care home.
Last but not least, we offer culinary delights from a top-class chef and sous-chef.

I really hope to see you soon. All the best,
Jan Lovett, General Manager
I am lucky enough to have been working in the care profession since the early 1990s, starting as a night carer to fit in with family commitments and moving up the ladder until becoming a Home Manager in 2006. I have lived in and around the Chartridge and Chesham area for four decades and I am incredibly familiar with the surrounding area including Amersham, Great Missenden, Bovingdon, Berkhamsted, Tring and Beaconsfield. Leading a team to deliver Luxury Living and Exceptional Care is my mission at Portobello Place care home.
Portobello Place is a very special care home in Chartridge, in a wonderful setting in the Chilterns, and I’m delighted to be part of the team here. I have a large family and have worked in care for over two decades in various roles, bringing me to this point. I have gained promotion through hands-on experience and leading by example, and I deliver and expect the highest standards of care for the people I look after. Portobello Place is a wonderful residential home offering the very best residential care, respite care and day care and I’m proud to be part of that.
I am really excited about joining the team at Portobello Place. I have worked in the care sector for 19 years in the Business Support Centre in various roles and loved every minute, especially when going out to the services. No two days are the same, and I enjoy working within an environment that allows me to use my communication skills with residents and their family members. Portobello Place is a state of the art luxury care home situated in a beautiful village on the edge of Chesham and I look forward to welcoming people to enjoy the experience we have to offer.
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.
