My Homecare Journey

Margaret McKinley


"I previously worked for Northern Health and Social Care Trust until 2014 as Domiciliary Care Assistant/ Rehabilitation Team/ Trust run Dementia/Residential Homes in Newtownabbey Area

Whilst I loved this role in the community I found the opportunities for progression limited.

Being out in the Community was a great opportunity to meet other Private Companies delivering same type of service and made the decision to join Homecare, I had a huge amount of respect for their staff that I had already met in the Community.


I have never looked back! With Homecare I quickly had the opportunity to apply for team leader, working alongside a great mentor, who not only taught me a lot about the organisation, but how to make the role enjoyable and rewarding. Homecare also gave me the opportunity to complete qualifications needed for progression, and this gave me the confidence to apply for area manager. Working alongside a wonderful team of people of whom I am particularly proud of, all of the staff I have worked with, especially the care 

assistants have backed me along my journey. Homecare went through a strategy change to adapt to the evolving environment, and again I had the opportunity to successfully apply for a regional manager role, the position I currently hold. I still feel very much part of a wonderful team, in an organisation that offers everyone opportunities, if you are willing to show commitment to making it the best.
