Samantha BARKER - Deputy Manager

I have worked for Old Friends Care since October 2010. As a carer with four years experience I wanted to develop in my chosen profession and to have a challenge in my life. I became a Team Leader in April 2014 where I managed my own team of carers. In addition, I managed the out of hours On Call service and worked in the office dealing with day to day enquires. I also worked in the community supporting new and existing staff.

I have recently been promoted to Deputy Manager. As deputy manager I manage the community support officers and help oversee the day-to-day running of the company. I will also be working with new carers to ensure that they maintain the high standards of care that Old Friends Care are known for.

I am the first person that you will meet (at your home) if you contact us to discuss the services that we offer. Experience has taught me how important it is to take the time to listen to people. It is vitally important that we discuss everything in detail - with the emphasis being to respect "YOUR" choices & to get everything correct from outset.

"I look forward to meeting You"
