I have been in the care industry for over 17 years, I started my journey as a community care worker with zero experience. From day 1 of starting, I knew id made the right choice to join the care sector, I am passionate about caring for people, its such a rewarding industry to be a part of, being able to make a difference to peoples lives every day.

I joined Care at Home Group in November 2019 as the Registered Manager for the Wirral branch, before joining I met with the CEO Karl Jacobie and the Managing director Sharon Lindley and within minutes of meeting them I knew it was where I needed to be, they shared my passion and ethos for quality so I left my role as Registered Manager from my previous care company and my 15 year service to start fresh with a company that was just starting out in my area. In January 2022 my company gave me an opportunity I couldn’t refuse, to be part of the quality department for the group, It was hard letting go of a role I loved and had lived for 5 years but I had to grasp the opportunity and I’m so glad I did!

My role as Quality and Compliance Assessor sees me travel around the branches, I love being able to get to know the amazing teams we employ and offering my support and guidance to the Registered Managers. My role links into our central operations and I liaise on the review, creation and implementation of our governance, policies and procedures, I also carry out branch inspections to allow the registered manager to have an overview of their quality in line with the KLOE’s to enable them to feel confident in their service.

What I love most about my role is that I get to advocate for quality and positive change whilst still having the support function that I love, I love offering people support and guidance and I love working with like minded people who too have a passion for quality care.

Case manager

I started in domiciliary care in 2006 as I originally wanted to be a nurse. I worked as a carer until April 2020 and loved the job! By this stage my kids were old enough for me to progress further in my career so I joined the Care at Home Group in November 2019.

In April 2020 I became a Quality Monitoring Officer. I loved my new role which included going out to meet new clients and completing assessments to ensure they received the care they needed. In February this year my role was changed to Case Manager, in this role I schedule rotas which I found easier than I thought due to knowing the clients already as I had assessed most of them. I love my role, even at the stressful times as the team I work with are brilliant and we all pull together.

My role now consists of assessments. Carrying out carer supervisions and observations, rotas along with taking phone calls and dealing with anything that comes in. I love working for Care at Home and have found a job and company that I enjoy.

Client manager

My first job, working in care started 19 years ago in a care home, supporting elderly individuals. I remember my first day clearly, I was so nervous and I didn’t really have a clue but I knew from being very young that all I wanted to do was look after people.

Read more
I stayed in this position for 8 years then had a complete career change. I bought an ironing business where I regularly dropped off and picked up elderly customers ironing. I started off just dropping their ironing at their door and over the years, I ended up bringing them shopping and making them their dinner, helping them to make a phone cal.

I knew that caring for people was where I needed to be so I sold up and applied for a job in a Rehabilitation unit, supporting males detained under the mental health act and supporting individuals with a wide range of complex mental health issues. This was a new challenge but one that I quickly grew to love. During this time I completed my level 5 in Care Management and became a Senior Recovery Worker. I held this position for several years till I heard of a Team Leader position with The Care at Home Group, for complex care.

I felt ready for a new challenge, so when I was chosen for the role, I was really excited. I started with CAHG in April 2022 working at supporting a young lady with Autism and learning disabilities in her own home. The package was complex and I was over the moon and honoured when I was offered the position of becoming her client manager.

I now work closely with the team of amazing carers and MDT to continue to provide the best possible support for this lady. My days vary, one day I can be in the office, attending meetings, writing care plans and risk assessments and the next day I am in my clients home with her, engaging in sensory activities and supporting her in any way she needs. This is what I love about this role, I am still able to keep my hand in and support her.

It can be fast paced and busy but that’s how I like it, and even during the odd stressful time it is worth it to see the smile on my client’s face.

Deputy manager

I have worked in the care sector for around several years. I started my journey as a domiciliary care worker, working around my university degree. After which I went to work for a charity called Scope. supporting adults with cerebral palsy.
Read more
I stayed with Scope for around 11 years. During this time, I supported the registered manager to run a 12 bedded residential home. My role as Team Coordinator allowed me to grow and develop and it was in Scope that I completed my Level 5 Leadership and Management. In 2021 I left Scope to become the Deputy Manager at Care at Home.

As a Deputy Manager no day is ever the same. I provide support to the Registered Manager and oversee the delivery of care to around 66 clients. Ensuring we always provide responsive, effective care. Sometimes the role can be challenging however it is always rewarding knowing that you and your team are making a difference to so many lives.

As a Deputy Manager you form many different roles, you step up in the absence of the Manager and work alongside Case Managers when they need support. You are out in the field and provide direct support when cover cannot be achieved. I manage compliance and ensure the office function always delivers expected at the standards.

I guide and train staff and provide advice and support when needed. I challenge bad practice and mentor Case Managers with difficult decision making. I recognise when moral is low and respond accordingly. I support the Registered Manager through internal and external audits ensuring we action any areas for improvement and support the service to grow and develop.

I thoroughly enjoy being part of the Warrington team and look forward to what the future holds.

Onboarding officer

I joined the Care at Home Group back in September 2021 as admin support with no previous care experience. After a couple weeks I moved into the role of Recruitment and Compliance Officer as I felt I was more suited to this role.

Each day I check Indeed.com and other social platforms to book candidates for interviews. Potential candidates are interviewed, and successful candidates are booked for training. All the necessary documents and references are gathered and checked to ensure all new staff are fully compliant before starting work at Care at Home.

A typical working day for me includes checking my calendar for the any interviews planned for the day. I check emails for responses to queries and I respond to any candidates who have submitted applications. Once completing all interviews, I will evaluate the candidates on whether they are the correct fit for the role for which they have applied. I process the applications for all successful candidates, book them on training and start work on their compliance.

After that I will look at our candidate pipeline for each area and chase up any outstanding compliance documents or references to ensure our new staff can start working with us as soon as possible.

The Care at Home Group is an amazing place to work, I find my role to be varied, challenging and really rewarding, especially when we signed-off our candidates quickly and we are able to give someone a new job opportunity.

HR Advisor

I started with Care at Home Group in 2019, I joined as a part-time Community Care Worker as I was looking for a new challenge, working along my university studies. I was looking for a role that would allow me to gain my confidence, skills, and abilities.
Read more
I have always had a passion to give back to the those that need it and found this would be the most appropriate role. I appreciated the role that I was in that much that, I decided to apply for the Care Coordinator role when this became available, at the time I had graduated and decided to study a master’s degree in International Business, Care at Home Group were always very supportive of me when completing my studies.

The Care Coordinator role allowed me to gain knowledge, experience and understanding of the care sector, my confidence grew and allowed me to work closely with my Registered manager and deputy to manage a small care team; completing rota management, completing care worker compliance, including, supervisions, team meetings, spot checks and medication competencies, this was something that I really enjoyed and I realised that I wanted to be able to help people succeed in their role.

After several discussions with the senior management team, I was made aware that there was a HR role available within the company and I jumped at this, I had recently completed my university studies and HR had always been something that motivated me. I knew that applying for this position would allow me to put my studies into practise, the CEO and Managing Director of Care at Home Group supported me throughout the transition from Care Co to HR Assistant, the support I received was remarkable and I could not thank the team enough for allowing me to land my dream job.

Care at Home Group is a great place to work, I have found that my role can be varied and challenging from day to day, but overall, very rewarding, I enjoy onboarding new candidates and welcoming them to the operational team, this can vary from Registered managers to Care coordinators, I enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to the CAHG culture. Having recently started in the HR role, my main priority is to ensure that CAHG recruit candidates, hire the right employees, update policies, maintain employee records, and ensure that the correct policies and procedures are in place for the Registered Managers and their teams, this can include, investigation, probation and disciplinary meetings, we have recently introduced a Business Induction programme for pre-existing and new employees, where we discuss the importance of the policies and processes that are in place.
