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.
