Senior Team Leader Amy Glover at Meyer House loves putting the care into caring and seeing her residents happy
“What I most enjoy about my job is seeing the residents happy and content. I love making a difference to their lives and it’s wonderful to see them enjoying entertainment and interacting with other residents. I go home at the end of the day knowing I have made a difference and had an impact on others. The best thing about working as part of a team here at Meyer House is that you have always got someone to ask for advice and support you in what you are unsure about.
I joined Meyer House in 2014 and my current role is Senior Team Leader. Previously, I have worked as Team Leader, Medication Handout, Hairdresser, and I have helped out in the Laundry and the Kitchen at times too. I have seen many positive changes throughout my time here including the use of Nourish – an online care planning technology – which has made a big difference to the way we work.
I feel proud of my professional achievements. I achieved my NVQ Level 2 and 3, and love learning new things every day while working. I am currently waiting to start my NVQ Level 5 and I am really looking forward to doing it and learning new things.
In addition to my NVQs, I have completed all the mandatory training plus Health and Safety, Fire Awareness and Fire Marshal, COVID-19, Safe Guarding, Mental Health, GDPR, Palliative Care and End Of Life, and Bereavement. I look forward to more training for myself and my team in the future, including Train the Trainer; knowledge is the key to empowering staff to progress in their development.
Our team is very supportive and always willing to listen and help when they can – willing to listen to any concerns we may have and help as much as they can. Our Manager has always had an open door policy and will always meet your needs and concerns as much as she can. Together, we are putting the care back into caring; we work as part of a family as well as a team.”
