Tenniece is a mum of three young children aged, 5, 3 and 2 so she is a busy lady. She originally worked as a teaching assistant before deciding to pursue a career in care. She lives locally and decided to join the team at Priors Mead as she was looking for a career change and something that would offer her a bit more flexibility around her young family.
Tenniece says, “Family is important to me and I love the feeling of family here, we put our residents at the heart of all we do. We have time to spend with them every day, chatting and making sure that their preferences regarding the activities they enjoy such as taking a walk are catered for. Working here I have a lot of flexibility and because we are so well organised we all know exactly what we’re doing and when, which makes for a very calm and stress-free environment. There are always really good hand-overs and great communication in the team which means that our residents receive seamless care. I joined to develop a long-term career in care and I’m excited about the future. I love the potential the company offers me training and developing me; I’m extremely proud to be a carer.”
