Bolton based ‘at-home care’ provider, Home Instead is delighted to announce the appointment of Geraldine Watterson to the key role of Care Manager heading up the team of Caregivers at their offices on Chorley New Road.
Geraldine has over eight years management experience in the care sector including a spell working for the Local Authority arranging Service Level Agreements with domiciliary care providers. She is also an active Caregiver herself supporting her elderly father and mother who has dementia.
As soon as Geraldine met with the owners of the Bolton based business she was impressed with the ethos of the company and their emphasis on the delivery of high quality care.
This, she says, shines through everyone in the Home Instead team:
“The team here is highly motivated, they are all very special individuals dedicated to making a difference to the lives of others. They are very innovative too, following recent training the team decided to form its own learning group as part of their Continuing Professional Development. They meet regularly in local libraries across the area to discuss all aspects of social care and support each other in providing the best care possible.”
As demand for care of the elderly in the UK increases, the office at Bolton continues to expand and is looking for more like minded individuals to join the team of Caregivers. Geraldine continues. “We do need more people to train as Caregivers. You don’t need to have previous experience but you should be compassionate and committed to what we do, we want special people to deliver the right care in the right way.”
