“I strive to reach each individual to ensure they feel fulfilled and their needs met, as it is so important for individuals to feel empowered.”

Hello, my name is Alison and I joined the team here at Chestnut Court Care Home in February 2022 as Activities Coordinator.

Like many people, I tried to have a work life balance whilst bringing up three children. Care and education establishments have helped me to do this.

Having experienced over thirty years within care and education, I have a varied background.

I have worked for social services in the community for three years as a Carer, a local mainstream school for five years as a Teaching Assistant, RNIB for three years as a Teaching Assistant, within special needs residential homes for individuals with autism as a Senior and Acting Team Manager, in residential care homes as a Carer, Senior, Activity Coordinator, Admin, Deputy and Acting Manager.  I also was an independent carer in the community which developed to a domiciliary care agency.

Throughout my experiences I have been, and am still passionate about person centred care. I strive to reach each individual to ensure they feel fulfilled and their needs met, as it is so important for individuals to feel empowered.  Supporting individuals to re-visit activities they thought they would not be able to achieve again. Enabling them to become more independent and see their confidence grow is an achievement to them and I feel proud and honoured to be invited to come into their home and support the individuals to achieve their goals.

Regarding qualifications, I feel we never stop learning.  I have completed my NVQ3 in Health and Social Care, NVQ3 as a Teaching Assistant and Level 2 RNIB Award in Care.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me and what I have to offer to Chestnut Court.
