Better late then never…

Lynda Ingram
Support Worker ( Beckside lodge )

Since starting at Horizon Healthcare Homes Limited ( Beckside Lodge)  in August 2020, it has been a real eye opener for me as I’ve never done any sort of care work before- (  I worked in retail for 16 +years and in the textile trade)  I didn’t know if i was ‘cut out’ the this kind of work but I soon found out it was a fantastic thing to be doing.

Horizon have supported me through all of my training and never once have I felt alone in my role. My management team are ‘superstars’ and are there for any advice or reassurance I might need. I have just begun my NVQ 2 in care, something at age 49 I would never have thought I’d be doing ( it just goes to show your never too old to do something new!)

The people we support and the team I work at Beckside Lodge are just fantastic and as they say ‘if you do something you enjoy you never work a day’ –  well that’s how it feels!!! 

I wish I’d started  work in care  years ago, but better late than never.
