#YouCanCare in Wiltshire!
Care Manager - Kelly Stalker
Hello, I'm Kelly Stalker, I have been in the care industry for the last ten years and growing up, my Mum was a full time Care Assistant, which is where I started. Since then, I have progressed to management, I have been a Scheduler, a Trainer and an Area Manager.
I have always worked for companies where the majority of business is commissioned through the Local Authority.
Joining Home Instead Senior Care as Care Manager is the job I have been waiting for. To find a company that focuses on quality as much as I do was not an easy task! When I read all about Home Instead, their mission and ethos, I knew I had found it! I am very passionate about helping people and making a difference to the quality of their life.
I am also a Moving and Handling trainer and was trained to teach Medication by the UKHCA.
I have lived in Hampshire for 10 years and have a young son who keeps me busy in my home life.
I am so excited to begin this new venture with Nell, to bring Home Instead Senior Care to Andover and East Wiltshire.
Owner/Director - Mrs Nell Light
Hello, I am Nell Light.
Before opening Home Instead Andover & East Wiltshire, I spent 17 years in the Royal Army Medical Corps. This gave me a passion for serving others and a love for leading people.
The experience I gained delivering medical care in the most challenging environments taught me both that the highest possible standards are achievable in any circumstances but also that delivery depends on a workforce that are trained, nurtured and supported.
I am a Dementia Friends Champion and deliver Dementia Friends sessions on behalf of the Alzheimers Society to groups and organisations in the local community. I volunteer for Healthwatch Wiltshire and am a governor of a local school.
I am proud to support the mission of Home Instead 'to change the face of ageing' and I look forward to providing a first class service to our clients; to create local jobs for local people to care for local seniors and to help the community in which I live to become a great place to be an older person in.
Outside of work I enjoy sailing (enthusiastically), playing netball (badly) and walking the dog with my husband and son.
'My training with Home Instead Senior Care was very thorough and comprehensive. Each day of training made me feel ready to be a confident CAREGiver. It was delivered in a manner that was engaging and interesting. The workbooks really reinforced the days learning and the practical Moving & Handling training has given me the skills I will need to assist clients in a professional and caring manner.'Emma's Training
