Can you tell us about your key responsibilities as Specialist Care Liaison Officer?
My key responsibilities are to check-in regularly with the our Service Users to ensure they are happy with their Care Worker and the support they are receiving from Abbots Care. I also visit at regular intervals, again just to check everything is ok. It’s lovely to have a face-to-face visit as they are always pleased to see me and it’s great to catch up!
Part of my role is to also help Service Users arrange appointments, meetings with their social workers, trips out and meet & greets with Care Workers.
I also check in regularly with the Care Workers to ensure they are happy with their rotation and their placements.

I started my career with Abbots Care in the customer service department, During my time I realised I really enjoy speaking with our Service Users. My role now allows me to do this which I love.

What does a day in your work life look like?
I audit all our Care Workers log notes, to see what activities everyone has been up to and how they have been doing the past week.
I call our Care Workers that are in placement, check they are well and check they have the PPE they require.
I call our Service Users; check they are well and if they need anything, I also check if they have any plans.
I will plan who I am going to visit.
Research activities in the area for the following month and email this out to the care workers in placement so they can plan with their Service Users.
