Linda Devine (Hillingdon)
Linda works closely with clients with learning disabilities as well as those with dementia and her patient and thoughtful way of working with them has brought forth some lovely compliments. Whatever she is doing, Linda always works in line with best practice principles and the Caremark system.
“Linda is such a star, I don’t know how I would manage without her,” said one client, while another commented: “Linda is truly a fantastic person and a very patient person; nothing is too much trouble for her.”
When trying to find activities for her clients to enjoy in the local community, Linda tries to come up with different ideas. One was an afternoon at the local theatre when she took two clients to a musical show that included hits from the 40s to the 70s. They loved it and sang along to the different numbers!
Linda is completely reliable and has never been off sick or late for her clients. Her communication and reporting skills are second to none. She is a great team player and will always help out covering calls at very short notice as well as offering to take the on-call phone every six weeks.
Nominated by her Care Manager, Christina said: “Linda may be the oldest member of our team but she has more energy than some of the younger ones!”
Well done and congratulations Linda!
