Our Staff

We are where we are thanks to the efforts of our caring staff. We are immensely proud of the level of support they afford our clients and, with the help of a rigorous selection process and a programme of ongoing training, we do our utmost to ensure this quality is maintained.

Currently 70 % of our team have or are working towards a minimum of a Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care. Each of our staff members are encouraged to attend regular training sessions which include:

  • Dementia
  • Stroke Awareness
  • Falls Safety
  • Diet and Nutrition

We go to great lengths to ensure that all our carer’s are qualified, competent and supported. We also feel that it is important for our office staff and management to have the same caring qualities. So no matter whether you are calling for information, advice or to enquire about care, you will find that your needs come first in our organisation.

The Interview

Each candidate is interviewed by a member of our management team to ensure that they have not only the experience but also the aptitude for the job. It’s important to Leda Homecare that we only take on care workers with naturally friendly, respectful and warm personalities because we know that they will be representing us in your home.

Staff Testimonials

Donna

After working in a shop for 10 years I never felt appreciated or that I made a difference to peoples life. I was looking for a job were I made a difference so I looked into care and decided to go in to Community care I started working for Leda care 2 years ago since then I feel like I have made such a difference for just making a cup of tea for a lady who has no family the smile on her face when I arrive in a morning is so heart warming she tells me story’s about her when she was young and the light in her eyes is amazing to the point you never want to leave.

I love making a difference to our clients lives helping them stay living independently in their homes were they are at there happiest and in a place were they have wonderful memories and feel safe.

I have a great relationship with them while I am doing personal care or their washing or ironing we are laughing and chatting away they tell me stories from years ago and I get as much pleasure from listening to them as much as they get reliving the good times.

As careers we are there at the most vulnerable times of their life so for them to have a warm smiling face coming through the door letting them know that some one does care and are looking after their best interest ; just taking a bun for them can mean the world to them.

Making sure that every morning they are clean and smart we look after all walks of life so some of our male clients still like a ironed shift and trousers and a tie on even though they are sat in a chair all day. We always respect that’s how they like to be and I love to see how they thrive by them staying in their own homes.

A care workers job is never the same from day to day and you learn thing everyday plus we have great opportunities to do more training and keep up to date with new equipment that comes out to help our clients to live Independently.

Even at the end of their journey you can have satisfaction that they have spent their last few week feeling that they had someone who did care and that just listened to them and that they did matter and that they was just as important as anyone else.

That’s why I love being a care worker and always go to work with a smile and come home feeling blessed to meet such amazing people that sometimes people forget ,in fact I use the word loosely work as it never feels like work

Megan

My name is Megan and I have been a Leda Homecare employee for 7 years now. Every evening I leave work knowing I have helped to keep an individual in their own home comforts and helped towards maintaining their health. This is the most rewarding and heartwarming feeling and even though the hours are long and the mornings are very early starts, to see my service users comfortable, happy and content to still be at home makes it all worth while.

My work involves a number of roles from getting a service user up and out of bed, ready for the day, carrying out their personal care, cooking them breakfast, dinner, tea and supper and then putting them back to bed at night ensuring they are safe and comfortable. To administering medication, taking blood sugar readings, applying creams, changing cathiter bags, emptying commodes,the list goes on. To simple little things like making them cups of tea in their favourite cups, to adjusting the cushions in their armchairs so they are extra comfortable and can see the television, to sitting and having a chat about the weather and for offering them emotional, meantal and physical support. However these little things are the most important as that is what makes them still dignified and happy in their own home.

I wouldn’t change my job for the world as every day I know I am helping not only one but a number of people to stay happy, healthy, as independent as can be and most importantly at home where everyone likes to be.
