Why Raffy loves Mondays

By E GRACE•01 Aug, 2019Raffy Hardy-Pearce works as a Care Supervisor at Purely Care. She began working for the company in an admin role in 2010. She initially worked in recruitment and sold the idea of working in care so well that she signed up as a care worker herself!    
She went on to work in a number of different care organisations, gaining various NVQs along the way, including a level 3 in Health and Social Care. After maternity leave she returned to us as a part time supervisor. 
The supervisor role is varied and never boring. Raffy loves to get out in the community and meet our clients and catch up with the care workers. She is still involved in recruitment and often takes new carers out for their practical training. She also carries out initial assessments for new clients. This involves talking to the client and their family about what they would like help with and which tasks they can manage themselves. From this information she puts together a person centred care plan. She then briefs the care workers and gets the care package started. She keeps in close contact with the client and the carers to make sure everything is running smoothly.
Raffy has now completed her level 4 diploma in Management which has enabled her to develop her management skills and progress within the company.
As a mother with a young son, Raffy finds finds that working for Purely Care allows her to utilise both her business and caring skills, and balance the demands of a growing family.Purely Care, The Old Corner Shop, Cromer Road, Norwich, NR6 6LZTel 01603 407707
