Choice Care are pleased to introduce their newest senior appointment. Registered General Nurse Donna Garret joins the company to take on their recently developed role as Nurse Care Manager.
Managing Director Andrew Key said ‘Donna’s prime role will be to supervise and monitor complex care for people in their own homes, provide enhanced training and mentoring of all the care staff at Choice Care focusing on developing skills of our carers, deliver enhanced services designed to go beyond current traditional models of care and bridge the widening gap between care and nursing. The home care sector is constrained by the way that commissioning of care by local authorities and health is done. My mission here is to push back at current boundaries to innovate and demonstrate that a broader range of services delivered by skilled and experienced carers benefits more people, including those whom commission the care.’
Continuing on Mr Key said ‘Over recent years we have repeatedly heard about the
problems around people not getting the services they need when they need them, the hospital bed crisis etc now exacerbated by the pandemic. We have deeply felt that frustration. So, we have been busy behind the scenes over the last year planning and developing our services to implement national and clinical programs, training our carers with the skills and knowledge needed to redefine the way that local care is provided to the benefit of all concerned.’
Donna Garrett has been a registered nurse for 8 years and has worked within surgical wards, elderly units, as a disability analyst, as a clinical lead nurse and now as nurse care manager for Choice Care.
Donna said ‘My nursing career has naturally progressed and being given the chance to work for Choice Care is allowing me to grow further, improving my knowledge and skill base. I have been welcomed into the team and have begun training with staff to improve their own skills and knowledge, but more importantly to improve their confidence when carrying out their role. Domiciliary care is very different to anything I have done before, but I welcome the new challenges and know I am and will be supported by the team.’
