Home Instead in Horsham is delighted to announce the appointment of Sharon Blades as new care manager.
Sharon (aged 41) has been interested in the care sector since she helped to look after her Grandparents when she was young. Twelve years ago she decided to give care a try and became a carer at a day centre in Walton on Thames before going on to be given the role of project manager for a local charity.
Commenting on her recent move to Home Instead, Sharon said: “Although I enjoyed working for a local charity, I was eager for a new challenge and wanted something that would allow me to build meaningful relationships with my clients. I was told about this position by a different Home Instead owner and was really excited to find out more. The company is renowned for providing such a high standard of care and so I jumped at the opportunity to join this reputable company.”
Sharon’s new role involves working alongside clients and caregivers to ensure they receive the best service and standard of care. Having only recently moved to the area she is keen to get out into the community and network with people in the local region and is looking forward to her future at Home Instead.
Sharon said, “The team’s passion and dedication to their clients is inspirational and I am looking forward to helping them continue their incredible work. We have been very busy since opening and although it has been a huge learning curve for me, I am thoroughly enjoying the job so far.”
Outside of work Sharon enjoys cooking and is a keen traveller. She has recently returned from a cruise round the Norwegian Fjords which she said was one of the most beautiful places she has ever visited.
