Denise from Your Home Care becomes Mental Health First Aider

Denise from Your Home Care becomes Mental Health First Aider

Our wonderful registered care manager, Denise has become an official Mental Health First Aider.

Denise Pitts, from Your Home Care, in Mansfield Woodhouse, has worked in the Adult Social Care sector for more than 10 years, starting out as a home care assistant.
Her new qualification will enable Denise to support Your Home Care’s workforce, including home care assistants, and their wellbeing needs at all times.

Denise said: “This course has allowed me to gain an in-depth understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect wellbeing.

“I want to give our staff, and clients, the support, reassurance and an understanding of how to keep themselves safe, and where to go for additional help and advice if needed.”

Your Home Care operates an open door policy and encourages staff to drop in for a coffee and a chat to discuss any issues they may have.

Paul Pitchford, co-founder of Your Home Care, said: “Well done to Denise, a highly-experienced person who knows home care and truly understands the importance of staff wellbeing.”

Client’s Daughter

We have been using your home care for a couple of months now for my mother and father-in-law and are so impressed with their service. Not only have they given us peace of mind knowing that our loved ones are being checked in on, but they also did some checks on my father-in-law which highlighted that his blood pressure was extremely low. They contacted us straight away which meant we were able to contact the GP regarding this and as a result, my father-in-law has had his medication reduced and his blood pressure is now normal. Without your home cares intervention this would have gone unnoticed possibly resulting in my father-in-law becoming unwell.

I can not recommend their services highly enough. They give us peace of mind knowing that someone has been in and checked on my mother and father-in-law and we know that they will contact us with any concerns they have.

Client’s Daugher-in-Law

We recently started using the support service by Your Home Care for my grandad and we only have great things to say about the team. The care, consideration and support the team have provided for my grandad have been second to none. The daily visits have really boosted his morale and he has found the staff so helpful and supportive. He has said he feels like they really care. I would recommend using Your Home Care to anyone, they are wonderful. Thank you so much for helping my grandad.
