Meet Pauline and her Journey Through Care...

Meet Pauline, our Team Leader and her Journey on how she became a Care Professional


Pauline began her nursing career in 1977, and she worked in orthpediatrics for ten years at the former Salford Royal on Chapel Street. Pauline then transferred to North Manchester General Hospital, where she worked on the orthopedic ward for the next 30 years. She began her nursing career as a staff nurse and worked her way up to senior nurse, where she stayed for 7 years before becoming a ward manager for 4 years before departing. She then spent six years working as a medical report writer for a doctor.


Pauline is currently a Team Leader at Home Instead Salford & Worsley and is one of our incredible Keyplayers! Along with providing exceptional care to our most vulnerable clients, Pauline meets with new Care Professional’s for a coffee to check how they are settling into their new role. She not only nurtures the newcomers to Home Instead, but she also serves as a support network for ALL Care Professionals, old and new.


We have been extremely blessed to have Pauline and all her years of nursing experience. She is a true ambassador for Home Instead Values, always going above and beyond for not only our clients, but also our care professionals. We hope Pauline stays with Home Instead for many years to come.

We asked Pauline why she wanted to be a Care Professional, and this is what she had to say:

“I had been driving past Home Instead Salford & Worsley for 7 years because I live nearby, and one day after seeing the Kate Garraway advertisement of an elderly man being alone at Christmas, it moved me. When I arrived at the office and chatted with Susan, our Director, I knew I had made the right decision to finally come in.”

… and what it is like working as a Care Professional at Home Instead:

” I love walking into my clients and seeing their reaction, it really is a rewarding experience knowing you are making a difference to people’s lives. The care goes beyond the client but extends towards the family aswell. All my clients are matched to me and I love visiting them, even my family noticed when I started this job how much happier I was, it really is a lovely job building long lasting connections.”

… and how she feels about the support from the office:

“The training provided is expectionally good and the support by the office is amazing. If I have any concerns they are always acknowledged and I know I can be open and honest. The support is truly amazing.”
