Felicity with resident Jean

Posted by: Caroline Hall, on 23/03/2015

Meet the team at Sussex Housing & Care

Each week we will feature a member of our staff here on our website, so you can get to know them a little better. We have around 170 staff across our care homes, housing schemes and central office. Each and every one of them is unique and works hard to provide the best service possible to our residents.

This week we introduce you to Felicity Verity, who is a Care Assistant at Ardath care home in Bexhill:

"I have worked at Ardath for around four months. I care for residents, making conversation with each and every resident while assisting with personal care throughout the day. 

"I believe this makes the residents more comfortable, and forms a bond of trust, and then you learn more about them. Depending on which shift I am on, I help to get residents ready for bed, or ready for the day ahead. But most of all I make sure residents are happy and content in their day to day life."

"The thing I enjoy most is helping and chatting to the residents that seem down or lonely, making sure they know someone is there if they need them, and forming a relationship with residents.

"It is very rewarding when a resident confides in me as I know that they trust me.

"Outside of work I enjoy the simple things - shopping, sleeping and hanging out with friends and mum. I love spending time with my horses, cats and greyhound, relaxing in the countryside."
