Dedicated, diligent and loyal – three words to describe Ian! He is an excellent employee for the Greenock branch.

Ian is a very professional and a caring worker who is always prepared to go above and beyond to support his clients. He has worked predominantly

over in the Dunoon Service, travelling across the water regularly to support the team. More recently, due to COVID, Ian has found himself working back on the mainland and is already a hit with his regular clients who find him polite, supportive and friendly.

During a field supervision the supervisor confirmed the caring and compassion shown by Jessica. She is always willing to help others and has taken on additional shifts to help out. A client described her as a ‘ray of sunshine’.

He gives regular feedback to the office if any of his clients require changes so their care plans to reflect the care and support they require.

Mike also works outside his availability when required in ensuring all client visits are met and works across all areas. Client feedback is always very positive and many request for Michael to attend the calls due to his very supportive nature and reliability.

Jan has never had any time off sick, she has always been very reliable and conscientious. Clients and colleagues are all fond of Jan. She will be missed by all the Macclesfield team. Happy retirement Jan!

Byron Leeming – Prestatyn

Byron recently supported a client, who has very complex needs and who suffers with white coat syndrome, to an A & E department. Due to Byron’s knowledge of the person he was supporting and his calm approach, he was able to ensure that the relevant checks were completed whilst ensuring that the customer remained calm and was reassured throughout the visit. Byron is very knowledgeable and adapts his support to each person. Keep up the good work.

In addition to William’s fantastic caring skills, he is a great support when required to cover extra shifts. William is very person centred, caring and polite and an absolute pleasure to speak with.

We approached William’s client to receive some feedback from him and the client’s next of kin wanted it noted that “William is a good worker. He is so patient and caring with his client and his client has a lot of confidence in William” – such lovely feedback to receive. Every single person in branch speaks highly of William and we are so happy to have him looking after our clients.  We know he always gives his absolute best.
