Our Senior Care Coordinator in our Bournemouth and Poole Home Care Office has featured in a national Government campaign to attract people to the care sector.
The campaign highlights the interesting and varied role Sharna does:
“It’s a busy, fast-paced role, and it keeps you on your toes, because every day is different!” Sharna joined Good Oaks five years ago as a Home Carer, working her way up to become a Team Leader, then on to Care Coordinator, and Senior Care Coordinator.
A typical working day for Sharna would be arranging and attending assessments, working with clients to put together care plans, and dealing with enquiries. She also supports her Team Leaders to manage their team of carers.
“I really enjoy helping people, especially our long-term clients as I have got to know them from when I cared for them. Now I can ensure they are continuing to be well-looked after by managing their care. It’s also really nice to meet new clients and is a very rewarding feeling when you know that you have assisted a client to remain safe and independent at home.”
Quality Home Care in Bournemouth
Sharna and the rest of the home care team have earned a place in the finals of the 2019 Home Care Awards in the category of Recruitment and Training.
