Introducing Suzanne, Our new Community Engagement Lead
Hi my name’s Suzanne and I’m the new Community Engagement Lead at Home Instead.
I have worked in the care field since 2007 assisting people with varying needs and helping them stay in their own home for as long as possible. Over my years of work in this sector, I have worked with various other agencies that also assist people with their health and social care needs and therefore have a vast amount of contacts for services with knowledge about what interventions they are able to offer individuals. I had heard about the excellent service Home Instead Senior Care offered through previous job roles and when the opportunity to become part of such a highly rated service arose, I decided to pursue it.
I have achieved qualifications in Principles of Dementia Care, Doing What Works in Dementia and an NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care and I plan to utilise these skills that I have learnt within this job role – ensuring that I build relationships within the community with those who will recognise the values and adapt to the needs of those with health and social care needs.
