Crossroads Caring For Carers

On Tuesday, our Health & Social Care Level 3 Year one students received a great opportunity to find out all about what career paths they could take upon completion of their course, when they were visited by Helen Simmons, the care manager for Crossroads.

Crossroads Caring for Carers is a leading provider of practical support for family-based carers living in Worcestershire. Their service is about improving the lives of family – based carers by giving them a break from caring thus enabling them to spend time on themselves. They supply a service with added value – not only providing care for the person with care needs but also respite to the family based carer(s). Operating as an independent local charity with over 35 years’ experience and employing trained professionals, they provide the highest quality homecare services that gives each family – based carer the peace of mind to let someone else step into their shoes.

Bright Futures

Helen Simmons (Care Manager) came to talk to our Health and Social Care Students about how Crossroads Caring for Carers improves the lives of people living in their own home and their family-based carers.

Helen said

“All the students were lovely and joined in the discussion. They are our future Health and Social Care Professionals and I would be very happy for any of them to care for me when the time comes. I hope I helped a little with their dreams and career path. I wish them all the luck in the world.”
