When Lindsay joined Hendra Healthcare in January 2010 she grasped the opportunity of undertaking an Adult Apprenticeship and NVQ level 3 in Care. Her employers were committed to training staff, and Lindsay found her experience of learning made her aspire to more. She is soon to complete the apprenticeship in record time, having trained for just over a year. She has also completed a First Aid course and specialist footcare programme, and is now qualified to use a defibrillator and administer medication. She has already been promoted to Team Leader and is currently completing a First Line Managers’ programme. Lindsay uses her skills to help deliver quality care to elderly care home residents, always going the extra mile to provide personal touches that vastly improve their quality of life.
Lindsay is committed to her role, the lives of the residents and also to helping other staff in their training. She said: “I now recognise that not only do I have a job which I love, but more importantly a career with opportunities for progression in the future.”
