Nadine Curtain – Ex Reablement Worker, Reablement Team
Working at New Directions has been a great opportunity and stepping stone in furthering my career, I was with the company for two years which allowed me to gain the experience needed to go on to my next steps.
Since starting with New Directions I have been given the opportunity of multiple training courses and working with other members of staff to build my knowledge in the health and social care sector.
Within my role, I was working with different health care workers to support individuals with the correct care and the best outcomes this has helped me be able to communicate in an effective professional manner, especially due to going to varied service users, some individuals with minimal rehabilitation goals to individuals with complex health needs needing further care which has allowed me to see healthcare from different viewpoints and change the approach needed in different situations. In addition to this working in the community has been a fantastic opportunity for gaining confidence when driving.
The support provided from the management team allowed me to get to this point in my career, nothing was ever too much and they were just a phone call away, whether this was in a work or personal aspect the support was always provided, as well as support from my colleagues who welcomed me to the team and assisted me when needed, overall working for new directions has been the opportunity and experience and confidence I needed to allow me to use my degree. I could not have asked for a better team to work with, I will miss them all.
