A Message from Our Carer
Natalie – “I have been working at this company since late 2020, to say it’s brilliant is an understatement. I genuinely love working in the care sector. Following my first contact with the office, they were so understanding of what I was looking for and they explained how flexible the role can be. The Registered Manager is amazing, incredibly supportive, and there if you need a hand. I already feel like a valued member of the team and I know that the work I do is having a positive impact on my clients. My lovely clients have recently sent me thank you cards and texts which makes it all worthwhile, I was in tears. Being able to have that connection and making a difference is a privilege. It’s certainly not like going to work, but more visiting family. I’ve found a forever home here.”
