I’ve been with Care UK since 2012. I joined because I love working with older people who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. I was a senior care assistant before I joined, so this was a step up for me.
What makes someone a good carer and team leader? I think being able to put yourself in a resident’s position is key. Having empathy is vital.
My favourite part of the day is the time between meals when all the home staff can interact with residents and take part in activities. I love interacting with residents and seeing them happy. I also have a great team and enjoy my meetings with my colleagues.
