The Huntingdon Team
Cheryn Rook - Owner & Care Manager
I have worked with disabled people for over 20 years. I started my career visiting and training deaf and deafblind people how to use specialist braille and large print equipment. I then worked for a large national charity for deaf people delivering training and support to deaf, deafened and deafblind people in their own homes and went on to manage all outreach activities in the East of England. Most recently I have been working for a local disability charity, training and managing volunteers to support disabled people in the community.
I have always been passionate about helping and supporting others to have the highest possible quality of life and retain their independence.
I decided that I wanted to make a real difference to people’s lives by starting up a high quality home care service. After researching the care industry I discovered that only Home Instead Senior Care shared the same high values as myself, by providing a reliable service that focuses on the individual, their needs and requirements. I am proud to be a part of that service.
Zena Betts - Operations and Training Manager
I have worked in the care Industry for over 15 years and in Care Management for the last 10 years. I believe passionately in delivering personalised care and came to work for Home Instead initially as a CAREGiver so that I could spend time with my clients delivering quality care. I now work delivering training to our new staff in the skills and knowledge required to deliver our unique one-to-one service and support existing staff with their developemnt in gaining new qualifications and training in health and social care.
Ruth Montgomery-Law - Supervisor
Having helped a close friend care for her sick husband, I realised that being a career and helping others would be very rewarding. I joined Home Instead as a CAREGiver in 2013, a role which I really enjoyed. Prior to becoming a CAREGiver, I worked as a riding instructor and I still have several ponies. I also worked with people who had dual sensory loss, again this was very rewarding work.
I was promoted to Supervisor in July 2016. My role now includes visiting new Clients and completing Care Plans, ensuring that Clients are happy with our service by undertaking Service Reviews and Quality Assurance visits. I also support our CAREGivers, delivering advice and guidance about their roles and delivering training/shadowing visits and introductions to our clients as required.
Zoe Brewster - Supervisor
Prior to working for Home Instead I worked in a variety of roles including childcare and supporting adults to achieve qualifications in Health and Social care. In June 2015 I commenced work as a Caregiver with Home instead, a role which I enjoyed and found very rewarding, supporting clients with their individual needs.
I was promoted to Supervisor in May 2016. My role now includes visiting new Clients and completing Care Plans, ensuring that Clients are happy with our service by undertaking Service Reviews and Quality Assurance visits. I also support our CAREGivers, delivering advice and guidance about their roles and delivering training/shadowing visits and introductions to our clients as required.
Samantha Jenkins & Alison Robinson - Administrators
Sam and Alison work jointly throughout the week, dealing with an array of tasks including taking CAREGiver and Client enquiries both over the telephone and via email, inputting information into our Computer system and archiving and keeping our filing system up to date.
They are both friendly and organised and essential to the smooth running of Home Instead Huntingdon.
