Tina has been working in care since 2010. Tina started her care career as a passenger assistant in Luton, assisting children with a range of disabilities to and from school. Tina worked with children who were wheelchair bound, had learning disabilities, were autistic and those displaying challenging behaviour and felt confident in assisting each and every child to and from school, putting a smile on their face at the same time.
Following this Tina went on to work with Allied care where she worked with elderly and vulnerable adults in their own homes. Tina thoroughly enjoyed this job and really enjoyed making her residents happy and comfortable.
Tina joined Kare Plus Milton Keynes in 2015 as a HCA and made a great impression with all of our clients, often being requested by name in many homes. Tina completed her QCF 2 in Health and Social Care in this time.
Tina loved being able to care for residents in care homes but due to a change in her availability could no longer do so and instead took up a different role with Kare Plus Milton Keynes handling enquiries and shift bookings out of office hours. Tina thrived at this and showed skill as a coordinator and eventually was asked to join the office team to do coordination and also recruitment.
