The Shoreham, Petts Wood and Longfield Team
Jag Yogarajah - Owner
Eleven years into a career within the financial industry, I recently had a break to have my second child. During this time I looked into a change in career which would allow me to focus more on changing the lives of people in need. I wanted to show my children what it means to really make a difference on a personal level.
When I came across Home Instead I knew straight away it was right for me. Every single person within Home Instead that I have met has a compelling passion in their eyes to change the lives of the elderly, and I wanted nothing else but to be a part of that in every possible way. I grew up in a large Indian family where respect and caring for elders was one of the first things I remember being taught, and is one of the key qualities I try to instil in my children. I have also experienced in the case of my grandmother the current shortcomings within the care sector, and I am thankful to have the opportunity to help improve this within Shoreham and the surrounding towns and villages.
Joti Kaur - Care Manager
I started working in the care sector as a part time carer whilst studying for my A Levels. I enjoyed it immensely, and my love for bringing joy to others really grew. I therefore decided to pursue the care sector as my permanent career path after completing my education, gradually progressing to a managerial level through various roles such as lead coordinator and supervisor.
My aim and passion as registered care manager is to provide the highest quality of care. I love working with people, seeing what our work can achieve, and how it makes a difference to peoples' lives, which fits in perfectly with the values of Home Instead Senior Care. I am honoured and proud to be working for Home Instead Shoreham, and I look forward to the challenges, experiences and a bright future.
Lucy Sackett - Recruiter/Administrator
I joined the Home Instead team in November 2017 as our recruiter/administrator. I am responsible for ensuring that first line recruitment and general office management runs smoothly.
After 10 years’ experience working in the recruitment and training industry I was ready for a change of course, and my long-standing interest in care put me in the direction of Home Instead Shoreham. I was attracted to their ethos and commitment to provide the best quality care within the community. I have always felt strongly about my own family members remaining independent, and it is a discussion myself and my loved-ones have had many times. I feel I have found my calling in the care industry as I love helping others and I love the feeling that I am changing peoples’ lives for the better.
We are always looking to grow our team of wonderful CAREGivers to support the number of enquiries we receive each week. If you, or someone you know would like to found out more about the career opportunities we can offer please call us on 01959 546228 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We pride ourselves in making sure that our CAREGivers receive the highest quality training, with the ability to progress within their roles and into other roles within the business if they so wish. Home Instead Senior Care has also received numerous awards for being one of the best companies to work in within care. The key focus within Home Instead is companionship, recognising that often clients want to enjoy someone's company engaging in their favourite hobbies for example, however the service can also include home help such as meal preparation and helping with daily living routines.
We are looking for friendly and compassionate people to expand our CAREGiver team - if you, like us, are passionate about helping the elderly continue to live fulfilling lives in their own homes, and enjoy interacting with people please contact us.
Very impressed with the professionalism, extreme kindness, care and courtesy shown to my friend. Every detail was covered in keeping her safe. They have shown respect and allowed my friend to retain her dignity in her cruel illness.
There was nothing that was too much trouble and their concern and genuine care was very evident. I highly recommend them.
