Laura Parker - Team Leader
Meet one of our Team Leaders, Laura, who has previous experience within residential care homes and working with people with dementia.
Laura says that she wanted to work at The Crescent as she loves the idea of 3 hour minimum call times, which gives her the opportunity to build up a good relationship with her clients and she is able to really get to know them.
Previously, Laura used to be a travel agent but she found a passion for care when her grandma became poorly and she helped to take care of her, now she can not imagine herself doing anything else other that working within the care and support industry.
Kath Griffin - Team Leader
Meet Kath she is one of our Team Leaders, she has been with The Crescent for nearly 10 years and loves her job. Her passion for care started when she cared for her mum, shortly after she realised this was the job she wished to purse to make a difference.
It all began when Kath worked for our Founder Paula previously and followed her when she set up The crescent and shared her passion for quality care.
The thing which Kath loves the most about being a part of The Crescent is that we are one big family and she loves enlightening the lives of our clients with her beautiful and caring personality and can’t wait for what the future holds
