Welcome to Tracey, our Registered Manager…
A very warm welcome goes to Tracey Bennett (pictured), our new Registered Manager at our Care With Choices service in the Oldham & Greater Manchester area (see website below if you live in this area and may be interested in care services or a career in care). Tracey has worked in the health and social care sector for more than 25 years and first became a Registered Manager in 2004.
Since then she has provided care for people in the Tameside and Stockport areas. Tracey has also been a Peripatetic Manager supporting branches in other areas, from Sunderland to Wrexham over the years, providing support when this has been needed.
Tracey explained that: ‘You could say care in the community is my passion. I think home is the best place to be and to support clients to stay at home, where they want to be, is great. I know people feel happiest within their own home, with all their own memories and belongings and where family can visit when they like. I believe it’s important to keep it feeling like a family home, where people can feel comfortable and I always do my very best to make them feel happy.’
Tracey then went on to say that she loves working with clients and delivering care services and says she is a very ‘hands on’ kind of person and really enjoys meeting clients. She doesn’t believe in being ‘just a name on paperwork or a voice on the phone’, she likes to meet and greet all clients and have input with their care. She enjoys working closely with staff too and is looking forward to meeting them and supporting them, to ensure we always deliver the best possible service.
Tracey strongly believes that, with the right support, people can stay in their own homes and commented that she likes to think that if we can put a smile on a client’s face, or have a little laugh with them whilst attending to their needs and making them feel comfortable, a company is doing a good job and she is looking forward to bringing her ethos to Care With Choices!
Welcome to Care With Choices Tracey and to the Optimo Care Group, we wish you all the best and hope you’ll be very happy in your new role!…
