My name is Louise and I am the new Senior Carer/ Team leader for White Cross Care in the Chatham Branch. I have worked in the Health and Social care sector for 12 years, I started my career as a Care Assistant in a Nursing Home and soon realised this was the sector I wanted to progress in. I knew I wanted to help others and to improve the quality of life of the individuals who I cared for. I decided to gain my NVQ level 2 and 3 and my QCF level 5 in Health and Social. I worked my way up from a Carer to a senior, to a deputy manager and then I worked as a Registered Manager for 5 years. I have worked for various companies and within different settings such as Residential Care homes, Nursing Homes, Extra Care schemes and within domiciliary Care.
I decided to join White Cross as I have recently relocated to the area, I am excited to work within a company with such a good reputation and I have already been made to feel so welcome by the team.
