I am a confident and highly proficient Social Care Manager with 13 years working experience augmented by qualifications in BA Hons Social Care and Dip in Addiction Studies and 10 years continuous personal professional development . I’ve spent 13 years working in various areas within Disability Services, social justice services and Eldercare.
I have an approachable, friendly but professional persona. My work ethic ensures that the individuals I support receive the highest standard of care and support in personal development. My aim in completion of work being to provide for the self-development, individuality, and independence of everyone by providing a fun, creative, supportive environment.
I lead the team of Social Care Partners who were employed for their education and experience but also for their compassionate and empathic natures. We will work with you to tailor a social programme that will meet all your needs. I will consider all your abilities and any limitations you may have and ensure you have a very meaningful, social and engaging day in The Pottery. I will support you in linking in with any multi-Disciplinary team member you require.
I strongly believe Seniors who are socially engaged benefit from a bigger sense of belonging and higher self-esteem levels. When seniors connect with those who are passionate about the same things they are, it forms lasting bonds and confidence. The feeling of connectedness to others and to a community or neighbourhood contributes to wellbeing as well as a feeling of independence.
Some activities on offer will include: Art therapy, music reminisce, armchair travel, bingo, quiz and crossword, sing songs, baking, gardening, book club, wood work, beauty and grooming sessions, aromatherapy , reiki , aerobics classes, indoor golf and many more games. Alongside this we will also offer excursions to many local attractions.
