The Wembley Team
Director - Leena Lakhani
Hello, my name is Leena Lakhani, I am incredibly proud to say I am the owner of Home Instead Senior Care Wembley. I live in our local area with my family and I am a mummy to two beautiful boys.
All my life, all I ever wanted to do was make a difference to people’s lives. As a young girl, I wanted to become a lawyer and help those who were not in a position to help themselves by giving them a voice and access to justice. I specialised in Education Law, helping children with special educational needs and their families to secure educational provision that would allow them to make educational progress and ensure that they could go on to lead a meaningful adult life. I loved every moment of helping these vulnerable children and making an actual difference to the quality of their lives. This is what I will bring to our local community of elderly people. I want to make a real difference to the quality of their lives, making it enjoyable, making it fun, making sure they have a smile on their face and ensuring they are happy, safe and comfortable in their own homes.
Home Instead Senior Care is all about making a difference and I am passionate about delivering the highest levels of care. We are person centred and focus on continuity of care whilst building the relationship between the elderly person and their CAREGiver. Our CAREGivers are chosen on the basis that they will provide a level of care that I would expect for my own loved ones.
Registered Care Manager - Fran Edwards
Hello my Name is Fran Edwards and I am proud to say I am the Registered Care Manager of Home Instead Senior Care Wembley.
I started as a CAREGiver in Sussex where I have lived all my life. I started work in care to support myself through College. I fell in love with care and the difference I was making on a day to day basis. 10 years later I still love working with our elderly community and helping those to remain independent and to stay at home. I love listening to their stories, which are often inspiring and making a difference to their lives. There is no job more rewarding, walking away and leaving a smile on their face knowing they are happy.
I have my Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care. I thoroughly enjoy learning and am of the view that you can always learn something new. I still enjoy learning different things from different people.
I am married and Mum to two amazing grown up boys, and a Nana to five very precious grandchildren. I am also a step Mum to five daughters and a further 12 grandchildren. As you can expect, outside of work, my life is very busy.
I am very proud of the difference Home Instead senior Care Wembley is making to peoples' lives and the local community.
I am very passionate about high quality care and would like every vulnerable person to be looked after, kept safe and to live their lives to the fullest, enjoying their golden years.
Quality Assurance Manager - Ginette Meade
Hello my name is Ginette Meade and I am very happy to say I am the Quality Assurance Manager of Home Instead Senior Care Wembley.
I started my career in care in 2007 when I was a successful Home Instead Owner for nearly 10 years, I ran an Office locally, learning a lot from the experience and loved making a difference in my local community. I had kept in touch with many of the local owners and kept in contact with Leena.
One day, Leena called me to ask for advice and I managed to offer my help! Next thing I knew, I was working part time in the office as the Administrator helping with the every day tasks. It was so nice to be back and even nicer to be able to help another community. Obviously, I have Home Instead in my blood and couldn’t keep away! I now work as the Quality Assurance Manager, ensuring that the support and care we provide in the community is the Home Instead way of delivering care, going above and beyond and making a difference to our Client's lives.
Over the years I have gained a wealth of experience and knowledge in all aspects of Health and Social Care and have achieved my NVQ Level 4 Registered Manager Award and attended many training courses over the years.
I enjoy meeting our clients and building a rapport with them and learning from their life experiences, it’s such a rewarding position to be in and I am proud and privileged to be part of the Home Instead team.
Administrator - Florina Tat
Hello my name is Florina Tat and I am the Administrator at Home Instead Senior Care Wembley. I have worked here since December 2017 and have loved every minute of my journey.
Growing up, I spent a lot of my time with my grandparents and have a very strong bond with them. I loved being with them, listening to them sharing their memories and spending qulaity time with them. I am very close to my grandfather who I miss terribly as he lives in Romania.Whenever I can we will talk on the phone and he likes to tell me about his day and how proud he is of me.
When I first arrived in London I used to work as a carer in a Day Centre for young people with physical and learning disabilities. I supported lots of the young people in their day to day activities. I supported them to complete simple life tasks which was extremely rewarding. We also went swimming with them and that was great fun, because not only did they thoroughly enjoy swimming, it was very rewarding to see how much independence the water gave them.
At Home Instead I work in the Office, helping with all aspects of the business, but sometimes I go to visit and support our Clients and I really enjoy that as well.
I do believe that with a little bit of more support and care, our elderly community can remain independent and remainin the confort of their own home.
I love the fact that at Home Instead we are trying to make a difference and “to change the face of ageing”. It feels amazing to know that we are making a difference to people's lives every single day.
I am very happy with the quality of care provided by Home Instead Senior Care to my 91-year-old father. He values the reliability and consistency of the care. He enjoys the company and the relationship that he builds up with the carers. This includes driving him to his classes.Son of Client PM
