Karen Henderson

Registered Manager

With years experience in the care sector, in both the community and residential settings, working as a carer, supervisor, care coordinator and recently deputy manager.

As well as carrying out our induction days, I have undertaken accredited courses and am certified to train our carers in moving and handling and basic life support and also qualified to assess the carers without previous care experience who all complete an accredited Care Certificate qualification.

I like to be very much hands on and love nothing better than to be out and about in the community, either working alongside staff or giving staff support, and share David’s vision of Right at Home Tyneside being one of the very best care providers in the north east. We’re definitely making progress, having won a Top 10 Provider Award in both 2015 and 2016.

Managing the day-to-day care packages gives me great satisfaction, as does seeing the positive impact we have on our clients lives. David and I meet all our clients at assessment stage and follow up with frequent visits and regular Care Plan reviews.

Right at Home Tyneside is a great place to work, where we firmly believe in providing unique, individualised care and putting our clients at the heart of everything we do.
