Area Care at Home Manager Newcastle
I am the Area Care at Home Manager for EveryDay Care and Support in Newcastle. I currently manage the care provision at Allerdale House and Hodgson House, and the community Care at Home for Newcastle. I support 34 members of staff and 55 customers.
I was appointed in the role in February 2022 after working in care for around 10 months. In this time I have completed my Level 4 Certificate in Health and Social Care Management.
My background prior to this role was working in the Criminal Justice Sector for the National Probation Service where I worked in prisons, community, courts and approved premises.
In 2013 I started to care for a close family member, and my interest in working in the care sector stemmed from this. I decided in 2021 that I would like to move into the care sector, and used my transferable skills and knowledge to do this.
I really love my role and I am starting my Level 5 Qualification in the near future. There are a lot of different vocational opportunities at EveryDay Care and Support, and it is great to see staff developing and then progressing in their careers.
I am passionate about supporting people to live in their own homes and retaining as much independence as possible. Person centred and excellent quality care are really important to me and that is why I chose to work for EveryDay Care and Support.
