This is the first instalment of our ‘Meet the Team’ series where we will discover more about the people who are the cornerstone of delivering exceptional care and support at Home From Home Care.
This week we feature Alex Fenn, Assistant Manager at The Hollies, based at our Bardney Micro community.
How long have you been at the company?
I started three years ago as a PSW1 and have enjoyed being part of staff teams at the Old Hall, The Reeds and The Hollies. Having worked all the way up from a PSW1, I have gained a wealth of experience working with lots of individuals all with their own specific needs and interests. I have also learnt from the challenges faced when managing a staff team – all of which was necessary to take on the role I now hold as Assistant Manager.
What did you do before you worked at HFHC?
I used to deliver sporting events and activities in the Lincoln community, to children that had been excluded from schools and other educational environments. I wanted a new challenge and had heard about Home From Home Care and its innovative approach. I was excited to move to such a forward-thinking company. I really enjoy supporting individuals in a fun active environment and helping people to live fulfilled lives through person centred activities that the individuals truly enjoy.
Do you have any advice for others working at Home From Home Care?
Gain qualifications. There are lots of opportunities with Home From Home Care to gain skills and experience which help you with your role and your own personal development. Grab those opportunities with both hands.
