Careers in Care – Meet Beverley

“Beverley Webb. I work at Bartlett’s residential home. I’ve been here for nine months as part of a promotion.

I was at Stone House, I worked at Stone House for 14 years. Still part of Peverel Court. I’ve always been a caring person. I’ve always thought, you know, I had what they say a calling. Yeah, so I worked my way up through the company, so I wanted to progress, my main aim was to be part of the management team.

That’s all I wanted to do really is to see the part of management side of it. So I did my assistant practitioner’s course in 2017-18, and I passed that with an apprenticeship as well. I was offered an opportunity at Bartlett’s, which I grabbed.

It is positive, yeah. People, they know what they’re here to do. We know we’re looking after vulnerable people. We’re here to support them. I love care planning. Yeah, I really enjoy that, I love the person centered approach.

I love to be able to sit and talk to a specific resident about, you know, what their wishes are, what they expect, what they used to do when they were younger. So it’s continuing with that in mind. Sitting with them, holding their hands, listening.

Taking them out for a walk. Just doing something for them, and if they’re not able to do something, it’s not a case of expecting them to do it. You’re there to assist them. Whatever difficulties they’re finding, then we’re there to help them to support them.

Success, for me is to going home, knowing that you’ve achieved something, knowing that you’ve made a difference to someone’s life, even if it’s just for a split second, putting a smile on someone’s face, knowing that you’ve made that little bit of a difference to someone’s day.

Do you know, I think we’ve got a very good, supportive network here, from the junior staff to the senior staff to the office management, to the manager even to the head office if you need, something there’s always someone there to give you support.

You get benefits. You get Perkbox, you get recognition, you have an employee of the quarter, which I’ve just been nominated and won which is really a great achievement, which I never expected. Lots of training, you can you can progress.

You’re not stagnant. You’re not in the same position if you want to go higher, which I did. If you work towards that, you can gain it with a lot of support”.
