Personal experience

Beth Younes was inspired to become a professional carer after personal experience helping to look after her Nana who was receiving end of life care at Teesside Hospice.

She explains: “My Nana didn’t like staff providing personal care, so I used to come in and do it, and this came me a good insight into what being a carer was like.

“The staff at the hospice treated my Nana with so much dignity and respect and made her final days as comfortable as possible, so this is what inspired me to become a carer myself.”

Beth was working at another home before she joined Roseleigh in October 2022 and in that role, she rose from Carer to Senior Carer and then to Deputy.

Beth says: “The home I was working in closed so I came to Roseleigh and the first impressions from my first few months here are very positive.

“Everyone is really nice, and it is clearly a well-run home with great communication between staff.

“I like it so much that I recommended Roseleigh to some of the families who had loved ones in the home which closed and three of them are now living here.”

Beth has some sound advice to anyone who may be considering a switch to working in residential care.

“You have to the right mindset,” she says.

“Residents, particularly those with dementia, can pick up on emotions so if you are in a bad mood, they will notice this and this can have a negative effect on them.

“So, you have to be a caring and patient person and, above all, love working with the elderly.”

Outside of work, 27-year-old Beth enjoys socializing with her friends, looking after her nephews and nieces, and walking her two dogs.
