Mike - Owner
Hello! I'm Mike, the owner of Home Instead Senior Care Worthing and Steyning. After 20 years working in London and travelling around Europe for work. I am really looking forward to becoming part of the local community here in Worthing and Steyning and providing it with the truly outstanding home care it deserves!
My primary role here is to make sure we provide an outstanding level of care and support. I do this by ensuring that my team share my values and I enable them to provide that support by giving them the time, training and tools to provide great care and to change the face of ageing here on the South Coast.
In my spare time I love to travel, hike and have my Private Pilot's Licence. I live with my two beautiful ginger cats Fraggle and Wizbit (who has been nominated for the 2018 Cat's Protection "Cat of the Year" award).
Cece - Registered Manager
Hello. My name is Cherie-Chantelle however I like to be called Cece and I am the registered manager of Home instead Worthing.
I started working in care when I was 17 and fell in love with the job. I started as a carer and worked in the community supporting individuals with different health conditions. In my previous job I was business development manager and worked closely with social services and with the NHS. I enjoy working in care as I like meeting new people and making a difference to peoples' lives. After 15 years I finally feel that I found my home working with Home Instead
When I am not at work I spend my time trying to keep up with my 7 year old son, Bradley, and spending time with my husband.
Lucy - Care Coordinator
I have been with Home Instead for two years, starting in our Chichester branch as a caregiver. I was motivated to join by my sister, who has severe learning difficulties. After a negative experience with the home care we were provided, I wanted to give others the supportive, person-centred care she wasn’t afforded.
As our Care Coordinator, I would like to support our CAREGivers to enjoy their work as much as I do, helping them to grow and give the skilled, individualised care we know they can provide. My role backs-up our office team; introducing CAREGivers to clients, and meeting regularly with the people we care for to make sure each person receives the help that is right for them. I am also responsible for scheduling all of our care calls and ensuring everything runs smoothly.
In my personal life, I’m an aspiring fiction writer having just completed my Masters in Creative Writing. At home, I’m either buried in a good book, researching my next creative exploit or puppysitter for our Irish setters, Rosie and Amber.
Emily - Digital and Compliance Lead
I’m Emily and I have been in the care industry for 10 years. I first realised that I wanted to become a CAREGiver when I was around 11 years old as I grew up watching my older sister caring for the elderly which inspired me. As soon as I was old enough I started an apprenticeship within a local care home and completed my Level two Diploma in Health and Social Care. Since then I have fallen in love with home care since moving on to a home care agency. I have loved looking after the elderly and bringing fulfilment into their lives every day.
With the experience that I have gained over the last ten years as a caregiver, co-ordinator, recruiter and trainer, I have decided to join Home instead as their digital compliance officer whilst also completing my Level 5 in Leadership and Management.
In my spare time I enjoy carrying out beauty treatments at my local salon. I have always wanted to become a beauty therapist but I have always felt that I belong more within the care industry. However, I am delighted to be able to have the best of both worlds.
Shannon - Community Engagement Officer
Shannon is the Community Engagement Officer for Home Instead Worthing and she manages our social media.
Shannon originally joined the company as a CAREGiver and she does still enjoy getting out in the community and caring for our clients on a regular basis. Shannon gained her experience through working in many different industries throughout her working career and most significantly from when she worked for a telecoms company where she had the responsibility of managing their social media accounts and learnt a lot about the role by completing online courses, lots of research and networking.
When Shannon isn't running around after her two dogs Manny and Peep she enjoys spending quality time with her family and Fiancé.
