After taking a position as a Support Worker in 2015, Laura Clarke is now a Care Coordinator for the Reablement team. Having started at the bottom of the ladder, within six months she was promoted to Lead Reablement Worker, creating care plans for service users and carrying out regular reviews.
She was then promoted again, becoming one of the pioneers of the Enhanced Response Team, a role that gave her vital managerial experience and that qualified her for her current position of Care Coordinator.
Emiline Garcia, Lead Reablement Worker, has worked for the Reablement team for almost three years. As well as the satisfaction she gets from helping service users every day, she feels thankful to have had the opportunity to progress and develop her career through training and managerial support. And unlike her previous agency roles, Emiline finds she now has time for her family and herself.
Assistant Care Coordinator Elvira Binan is in her third year with the Reablement team. She feels supported by her managers and her colleagues, some of whom have been with the Reablement team for almost half of their lives. Elvira believes this long service represents how good her employer is, and the job itself.
