From overcoming adversity to “carer of the month” in 3 months – read Danni’s inspirational story
Until recently, Danni had a long and successful career as a beauty therapist. She found her work rewarding and had a real sense of fulfilment helping people boost their self-confidence. Unfortunately, Danni encountered some personal difficulties that caused her to put her beauty career on hold, as she was now unable to commit to the working hours her
Danni began seeking more flexible working opportunities, so she could continue earning around her personal commitments. Danni considered a career in Health and Social Care, as she wanted a rewarding job, and had some experience working with children and elderly people, but she lacked the qualifications and training necessary pursue a career as a Healthcare Assistant (HCA). Danni discovered Source Care and jumped at the opportunity to attend our free Care Certificate training course. During the course, Danni impressed us with natural talent for care, as well as her commitment to learning and gaining all she could from the course.
Since completing her training in January, Danni has gone from strength to strength, and is now working as a HCA supporting adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs. From the start, Danni’s devotion and enthusiasm was on full display, with seemingly endless passion for her work. Danni continues to do all she can to assist residents in every way possible, spreading smiles to all. Danni has gone above and beyond for those she supports, arranging pamper nights, trips to the local community and even group cooking sessions!
“Danni is such a caring person. As soon as we met Danni, we knew she could do so much good. She is now working for an organisation close to my heart, as it is where I started my career in Health and Social care! Danni is doing a fantastic job!” – Toni Hamilton, Source Care Head of Training Business Development.
After just a few months working with Source Care, Danni has been selected as Source Care’s Carer of the Month for March. This is as a result of her unending compassion and dedication towards her work.
With the continuing help and support of Source Care, Danni aims to further her career in Health and Social Care by working within different sectors of the care industry and earning further specialist care qualifications. Danni is doing an amazing job, and we would like to thank her for all her hard work and dedication, as she has brought joy to so many people.
Danni says “I have never felt such belonging and I know this is what I’ve always wanted to do. For me, this is more than just a job, it’s my life’s passion, and having the support of Source Care means the world to me. I feel that my life experiences and the challenges I have faced has helped me gain a greater understanding of those I care for. Just being able to get to know the people I work with and to help put a smile on their faces makes my day.”
