Hannah Smyth

Hannah Smyth - Recruitment Administrator

After graduating University with a Media and Communications degree, alongside raising a family, I have spent most of my career working for the support services in the Education sector. When I came across Home Instead, I was captivated by their mission, vision and values. I joined the team in 2019 as a Recruitment Administrator and I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of my role. I particularly enjoy supporting and caring for our wonderful CAREGivers, whether that be offering a listening ear or anything admin. As part of my role I am involved in the recruitment and selection process for CAREGivers, which gives me the perfect opportunity to find people who are extremely passionate about delivering high quality care. I have always worked in a front facing role and it’s where I am happiest, so I’m very fortunate that I often get to meet some incredible people who truly want to make a difference to our Client’s lives. Home Instead is a unique family culture where we all support one another and strive to be the best for each other and our Clients, and I count myself lucky to be part of it.

Roisín McLeod - Registered Care Manager

I have worked in the care industry for over 15 years and have progressed from a Care Worker and Supervisor to Registered Manager. I have worked with people living with mental health difficulties and learning disabilities as well as vulnerable children, young adults and the elderly. I also worked as an interior/product designer for a number of years but I really missed working in care and decided to return and develop my knowledge and skills to ensure everyone receives care suitable to their needs. Working in care instilled in me to always value people as individuals and to deliver a quality service. I have joined Home Instead as these values are echoed in their ethos and mission statement.

My passion is delivering high quality inspiring training sessions that engage our CAREGivers and focus on promoting and developing their knowledge and key legislative understanding. In the training I emphasise the importance of person-centred practice, mental capacity and consent, understanding and supporting dementia care. Home Instead Senior Care offers a wider scope to the services which people an avail of, we are not ‘task’ orientated. Looking forward, I hope to support the company to flourish and develop whilst maintaining the quality and individuality that it demands as a leading provider of senior care services.

Una O'Duil - Owner

Originally from Kilkeel, I now live with my husband and active young family in Waringstown, County Down. Before joining Home Instead I worked in Lurgan as a Solicitor in private practice supporting people across a range of areas from Conveyancing and Employment issues to Wills and Administration of Estates. As a Solicitor I often came face to face with the worries and challenges faced by ageing Clients and their busy families who were trying to plan for the future and find the right type of support for their loved one. I frequently encountered the overwhelming worry people faced about losing their independence and recognised their preference for remaining in their own home for as long as possible. It was clear to me that our community lacked a service that truly put individuals at the centre of their own care and it was when I was exploring this further that I came across Home Instead Senior Care. The quality based Home Instead model really resonated with my own values and so much so that I made the decision to open the Home Instead office in Banbridge in 2018. I wanted to offer this exceptional service within our local community. I am now responsible for the overall running of the business from recruiting to compliance and I am committed to offering a service where the needs of our Clients take priority above everything else.
