Care Manager Sadie welcomes them both – “I am really pleased to welcome Becca and Trish…..they come with a wealth of experience and a real passion for making a difference in people’s lives!”
“Hello everyone, let me introduce myself, my name is Trish Giles recently commenced employment with Broomfield Care. I retired from Gloucestershire Hospitals in December 2017. A happy and successful career spanning 40 years as a registered nurse is what I have been fortunate to have had! I qualified firstly as a registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) and then trained as a Registered General Nurse (RGN). Old age medicine, mental health issues and caring for people with medical conditions are just some of my experiences. I also qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse. My final role was managing Gloucestershire Nursing Bank and previous to this I held many positions from ward sister to senior nurse positions. My memorable highlights have been numerous including recruiting in Dubai and Madrid. I have met so many people and have made lifelong friends.”
“CQC gave outstanding for Care”
“Once I allowed my nursing registration to lapse it allowed me to to apply for the position at Broomfield as I enjoy caring for people, supporting people in their own homes, is completely new to me. Why Broomfield? I considered a few providers that supply domiciliary workers, I like the ethos behind the company name and CQC gave Outstanding for care, and that is so important for me. Although, I have only just started I am enjoying the role.”
“I am married and my interests include travel where I have been lucky enough to have travelled to some fabulous parts of the world, including India, Sri Lanka, Iceland and Mexico . As a member of a pub quiz team I enjoy socialising. Other interests of mine include gardening, days out (National Trust Member) and I also enjoy DIY. Last year part of my retirement plan was to redecorate the house, I fulfilled it (little help from my husband). I enjoy new experiences, I have a bucket list working through before I reach a big birthday!!
I look forward to meeting all of you.” – Trish
“My name is Rebecca Lawrence (Becca) I am a third year Occupational Therapy student. My placements whilst studying have been an Acute hospital Elderly care Ward in the Royal Berkshire hospital working with people with dementia and Cancer Haematology/Oncology in the Churchill Hospital in Oxford.
“The team are very supportive”
Seeing clients in their own homes is widening my knowledge about the caring profession once someone has been discharged from hospital. I enjoy working with the clients they have all been so friendly and welcoming. The team are very supportive and I enjoy learning from the knowledge of others.
In my spare time I love to go on walks and go to the gym to maintain a healthy work-life balance.” – Becca
