The Wakefield Team
Jason Tomlinson, Owner and Director
Hi, I’m Jason and it’s my pleasure to welcome you to Home Instead Wakefield. Having spent almost ten years as a practising pharmacist I have met lots of older people in the community and it has saddened me to see and hear about the poor quality of care available to them. I personally enjoy the company of our senior citizens and learning about their experiences. It’s amazing to see the joy in their faces when you show genuine interest in them, and their past.
I was introduced to Home Instead when they came to visit my place of work. After doing some research and making some enquiries, I realised Home Instead is different from other home care providers. They hold the same values and high personal standards as I aspire to so it wasn’t long before I started to think about joining Home Instead and leaving my career as a pharmacist. I am dedicated to sourcing and employing the best quality CAREGivers so we can provide the best quality care for you.
Outside of Home Instead I enjoy travelling and have visited many countries as a backpacker before getting married. I continue to travel today with my wife and little boy, where we like to mix with local people and experience local food and cultures. I am also a Formula 1 fan and have had the privilege to visit four tracks around the world. We’re here to help with any queries so please feel free to get in touch on (01924 565330)
Dawn Leatham, Care Manager
My career of over 20 years in Health & Social Care has now brought me to the position of Care Manager at Home Instead Senior Care Wakefield. I have first-hand experience and knowledge in delivering care to both young and older clients.
Within my role I make sure that the day to day care operations run smoothly and efficiently ensuring that all clients receive consistent high-quality care.
I am directly involved in the training and recruitment of CAREGivers. Here at Home Instead Senior Care we aim to recruit and carefully select CAREGivers who show the same work ethos and passion for delivering a high standard of quality care. I feel that strong relationships between the client and the CAREGiver are vital and this can only be achieved through good planning and scheduling of the care being given.
I deliver a training programme which ensures that the CAREGivers have the knowledge and confidence to deliver high quality care. I have direct daily contact with the CAREGivers, offering support and advice when needed.
It is very rewarding to see the positive impact of the service we deliver at Home Instead Senior Care on the lives of the people we support, ensuring that they live comfortably within their own home.
I feel very privileged to be working for Home Instead Senior Care and would without a doubt have my own family members supported by the team.
In my spare time, I enjoy walking and can be found walking up the highest, longest point to admire the stunning views we have here in Yorkshire!
