Experience

Retired from working with East Sussex County Council Services in the social care arena in October 2016 - as an assessor care manager with older adults following a long service career from 1979.
I would like to continue working with adults providing my experienced learning/training and services to those in need living in their homes within the community.

Background

I hold a City & Guilds in Social Care.
I have good knowledge of local resources and services that I have built up over many years of working within Adult Social Care.
I am aware that clients can often be in crisis situations and will need to negotiate and plan for future care needs or changes in their lifestyle or living arrangements.
Assessing personal risk and risk to service users is also required and the need to negotiating with family, friends and other agencies to minimise this risk.
Review and evaluation of care plans with users with complex needs.
Good communication with fellow workers, agencies, managers, clients and carers and recording information accurately for others to follow clearly is import in the position of manager a service.
I have knowledge of current legislation, NHS and Community Care Act, National Assistance Act, Housing Act, Carers Act Direct Payments, Safeguarding and the policy for supporting vulnerable adults.
I know knowledge of the Mental Health Act and the Care Pathway Approach.
