Leeanna Fountain, day club manager 

I started working for Care UK in 2015, having previously worked as a dementia carer for 10 years in a specialist dementia care home.  I have also worked in a range of residential and nursing homes as a carer.   

To carry out my role, you have to be very patient, have good listening skills and a lot of imagination to be able to come up with new ideas for interesting activities. 

I thoroughly enjoy my role as day club manager and love my working day from start to finish.  It’s lovely to take time to talk to the club members and doing various arts and crafts and baking with them.  

My career highlight to date has been my promotion to day club manager at the Cedrus Club, and my biggest professional challenge has been gaining enough confidence to stand up in front of a group to deliver training.   

I enjoy the life story work we do with residents - I believe we can all learn so much from the people we care for, and everyone’s life history is a specialist novel that will never be the same for anyone else.

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.
