Trusted to care in Islington, London
I began working in the care sector at the start of the pandemic in 2020 – initially in domiciliary care.
I wanted to experience working in a care home, so I applied to join the Lennox House team and began working as a care assistant here in early 2021.
A few months later, when the role I’m doing now became available I was keen to give it a go. I love supporting residents to enjoy each day to the full and supporting them to try new things.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the home so far. It’s a privilege to get to know the residents and finding new and interesting activities that they’ll enjoy or to help them to rekindle past hobbies. Everything I do is about ensuring they enjoy a meaningful, fun and rewarding lifestyle.
