Profile: Oaklea, 05th Oct, 2021
As you are aware there is a huge national (and local) effort going into encouraging people to work in social care.
Totally focussed on the job in hand….oh and you have some fun on the way too!
Getting new faces in is a huge challenge -but if you’ve ever thought about starting a career caring for others - have a listen to one of our own stalwarts - Neil Sadler. He’s been working in social care for more than three decades….and as a mark of the progression involved - he’s now our Registered Manager in Northumberland.
Neil has been with Oaklea since 2005 and has loved changing the lives of the people he supports.
Gatecrasher -Cheeky man gets everywhere - you can tell he loves what he does -so could you!
It’s definitely not a 9-5 job……but then again…..you change lives - Neil knows this - his journey began at the tender age of 15 when supporting his Grandmother. He’s spent most of time working in Support Living settings in the North East…It’s also made a big difference to him - social care gave him his first trip abroad!
Looking at a great career - so far!
It sounds so obvious - but you don’t devote 30+ years to doing something unless you really get something out of it….Giving something to others is more than enough reason to get out of bed everyday and change lives - including your own!
Some of the people Neil refers to in his video include Jimmy - sadly he passed away earlier this year - but Neil has fond memories of making his later years that bit more special - such as arranging a special 90th Birthday party -and an Exec box at his beloved Newcastle United!
Raising spirits as well as flags…
In the frame for a top role - Always time for a selfie on a fun trip with those Neil supports…
The final image says it all - best foot forward for Neil!
