Dee - Springwood

I’ve worked for Sheffcare for over 15 years; I came to Springwood as a care support worker, after a few years I moved onto senior carer and now I am a Night Care Support Worker.

I really enjoy working in care, even though there are challenges every day, even if I just make one person smile, or reassure one person, when I go home my face is beaming. Care work can be very hard, but the rewards surpass any challenges we face, and you always have a supportive network around you.

As soon as I walked into the care home in which I work I knew that’s where I wanted to be; the warmth and friendliness hits you as you come into reception and all the staff truly care and work hard every single day to ensure our residents lives are filled with happiness. It makes me so proud to see my team making a real difference each day.

I always tell our Care Support Workers that they should aim to provide care that they would want their family receiving, and that to be a great carer you need dedication, commitment, compassion and kindness

A lot’s changed in the years since I started at Springwood, but one thing has remained the same, this place is a family. We create truly lasting friendships with our staff, relatives and residents, which help Springwood feel not like a workplace but a home.
