Jo works as a Supervisor in our home care team in Mendip, she oversees the Emma Sheppard Centre, our dementia active living centre in Frome.

“Working in care gives you a sense of achievement and wellbeing; knowing you have made someone’s day just that little bit easier. It is a fantastic industry and carers are called carers because they care! We do go away sometimes and worry about whether we have done the right thing, but training has given me great confidence over the years. Experience has raised my self esteem and made me a much happier person both at work and in my personal life.”

In 2018, Jo received the ‘Frontline Leaders’ award at the Great British Care Awards (South West) following nominations from her colleagues for the commitment she gives to the customers and staff she supports.
