Leeanna Fountain, day club manager
I started working for Care UK in 2015, having previously worked as a dementia carer in a specialist dementia care home. To do my job well, you have to be very patient, have good listening skills and the imagination to come up with new ideas for interesting activities.
I love my working day from start to finish. It’s nice to take the time to talk to the club members and take part in various activities such as arts and crafts and baking with them. My career highlight to date has been my promotion to day club manager at the Cedrus Club. I enjoy the life story work we do with residents - I believe we can all learn so much from the people we care for.
When I’m not at work, I like to spend quality time with my family. I also like to read and love to be outside in the fresh air, especially in the winter months.
