Care Coordinator

I joined Alcedo Care in November 2019 as a Care Ambassador, and was then promoted to Field Care Supervisor and then Care Coordinator for Lancaster & Wyre the following year.

I have worked in Health and Social Care for 20 years and I graduated from Blackpool and Fylde University in 2017 with a BA Honours in Health and Social Care – Children and Families pathway

My journey started when I was 17 as a Kitchen Assistant in a nursing home. Since then I have worked in nursing homes, domiciliary care, on EMI units, in a children nursery and in mental health supported living.

I enjoy caring for others and helping to make their days a little brighter. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my partner and our children.

Steve Sinnott
Care Assessor

My name is Steve, and I am the Care Assessor for Alcedo Care Lancaster and Wyre, responsible for assessing new clients care and support needs and maintaining data quality on all of our client Care Plans. I have worked in the adult health and social care sector for over 30 years, and my roles have included operational management, business development, contracts management and consultancy.

I was attracted to work as a home care worker at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic as I wanted to make a really positive difference when the care sector really needed people on the ground to support vulnerable clients.

After working for Alcedo Care for 6 months I was promoted to a new role of Care Assessor  which has enabled me to further develop my skills and apply my previous experience to support the team in continuing to deliver very high quality care and to help grow the business even more.

Field care supervisor

Hi I’m Maureen, I’m a Field Care Supervisor at Alcedo Care Lancaster & Wyre. I have worked in the care sector for over 20 years, only recently returning back to it after a break. I have mainly worked in mental health, working in care homes as a Senior Carer and now moved over to Home Care as a new challenge.

I have a very keen interest in photography and in my time off I am out with my camera, trying to capture the perfect shots. Nature is what I enjoy the most. I also enjoy horse riding and had a horse until two years ago.

I am an Administrator for a charity called Zoe’s Journey, which raises money for research into curing cancer in dogs. The charity was set up by the owner of a dog called Zoe who beat cancer and eventually passed away of old age. The charity is in her memory.
