Care Manager

I qualified as a general nurse in 1986 and worked for the NHS in both acute and community settings for a number of years. More recently I have worked in the private care sector as a registered manager. I enjoy the diversity of my role. No two days are ever the same! I believe that everyone with care needs has the right to be treated with respect, dignity and given choices around the care they wish to receive. I love meeting our clients and supporting our team to deliver the best care possible.

Eight years ago I had a career change and moved into the care industry. I initially started as a support worker, thereafter moving onto a Senior Care role, after which I was promoted to the Registered Manager in 2013 and completed my Level 5 Diploma in Health and Social Care. I enjoy every aspect of delivering a good quality service ensuring dignity and respect for people using care services. My aim it to keep care services efficient and compassionate and taking action, however small, in order to create a caring system.

I am proud to be working for care@carersresource, a service of Carers Resource, in an industry where you feel that you can help to improve other people’s lives. Having previously worked in administration in various industries, I have found this to be the most rewarding - by far. I have only been here for 1 year, but hope to continue in my role and look forward to the future and the challenges we face.

Care Co-Ordinator

I worked in the N.H.S from 1977 to 2015. I have a wealth of experience working with people with learning disabilities and their families. I retired in 2015 but soon realised that being without a job was not for me so I applied to become a support worker with Crossroads and than transferred to Carers Resource in April 2016. I am now working as a care-coordinator and thoroughly enjoying my new role. I have been really impressed with the high standard of care that is delivered and I am looking forward to making a bigger contribution to the service in the future.

Claire Barrett

Care Co-Ordinator

I have worked as a senior support worker for many years within the mental health sector gaining my NVQ levels 2 and 3 in care. I changed my role to become a carer for the elderly within the community and loved the change; I came to work for Carers’ Resource in 2017 as a carer and applied for the role as Care Coordinator as I felt I had a lot of transferable skills to bring with me to the role. I now work as a care coordinator part time and also a carer in the community part time; this for me is the best of both worlds as I love both sides of the job.
