WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE PRIOR TO WORKING AT CAREMARK?

After looking after both my parents until they passed away, I decided to go into Care, starting my career with Carewatch (Bexley) for 2 years, gaining my NVQ 2 and 3. I decided I wanted a change and joined a care home called Sunrise in Sidcup in the Dementia unit which I loved, acquiring significant medication experience and becoming the Lead for Care Wellbeing.

After working in the Care Home, I moved back into the community and joined Alzheimer’s & Dementia Support Services (ADSS) in Northfleet where I started training carers. Whilst here I competed the PTILL, enabling me to teach other carers, and did other roles in ADSS where I learned so much more about medication and diagnoses of patients that would be suitable for ADSS. I have also completed my Level 3 in Dementia Care, where the training was run by Buzz Loveday who has written books and run lectures on Dementia. I also still go to a client on a Saturday morning and have been visiting this client and her family for nearly 9 years.

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT ROLE AND WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT IT?

In February 2020 I joined Caremark in Gravesend as the HR and Recruitment Coordinator; my responsibilities include interviewing and training successful candidates, as well as running refresher training for existing carers. Training is my passion and I want to provide Caremark with the best carers who are trained to national standards and have the confidence to provide exceptional care to all our clients. I always make myself available to support the carers out in the community.

WHAT HOBBIES OR ACTIVITIES DO YOU ENJOY DOING OUTSIDE OF WORK?

Spending time with my partner, grandchildren and my cat.
