Meet The Manager

Krista Hallett is Registered Manager at Gardiner's Homecare.

Krista has worked in the care sector for over 16 years, starting as a health care assistant through to her current role now as the Registered Manager for Gardiner's.

"Gardiner’s is a company I feel extremely proud to work for. When I joined, I soon realised how dedicated the staff were to their service users, staff in the office and out in the community.  The minimum hour duty allows service users to maintain as much independence as possible in their own home, allowing care workers to have the time to support them without having to rush off.  We always strive to provide the best possible care to our service users and when we receive wonderful feedback from the service user or family members, this is something that makes the job very rewarding."
