Kerri Altinbas – Care Coordinator

Hi, my name is Kerri I have worked in Elderly adult care for around 24 years from the age of 17. Although I have worked in other roles outside of the care sector working in care gives me a sense of belonging. Over the years I have gained a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience. I have worked in both care homes and domiciliary care, as a carer, senior carer and now in my current position as care coordinator at Meadow lodge home care services. In between all this, I completed my degree in Health well-being and Social Care which I am incredibly proud of.

My role as a coordinator requires me to manage my own team of carers to coordinate care calls for our service users on a daily basis. It also includes liaising with carers, service users and their families as well as other healthcare professionals involved in delivering their care. I am also responsible for taking on any new care packages where possible, carrying out meet and greets building care plans and auditing care plans, MAR charts as well as carrying out reviews and supervision

I have been in my current position at Meadow lodge for around 18 months now. I would love to continue building my career in care and maybe one day work in a managerial role

When I am not at work you may find me running around the streets, running is a passion of mine it’s my escape and what keeps me sane. I have also taken up walking. I also have a very busy home to keep with a Husband and 3 grown up children.
