Hopes are realised for care worker Charley
December 2014 | Hopes are realised for care worker Charley
THE hopes of a young jobseeker to start a career as a care worker have been realised thanks to a partnership between recruitment specialists Ingeus, which delivers the government's Work Programme in West Yorkshire, and Ilkley-based 247 Nursing. 
For 20-year-old Charley Smith from Leeds, this is her first permanent job since leaving school four years ago. She has had a long-term ambition to be a carer, looking after the everyday health and social needs of elderly people and others in the community. However, despite her passion and persistence, finding an employer willing to give her the chance she craved proved almost impossible. 
Charley Smith is pictured with 247 Nursing's Kate Barnett and Cassie Good from Ingeus.
Proud Sheila sees granddaughter's graduation day - 5,000 miles away
December 2014 | Proud Sheila sees granddaughter's graduation day - 5,000 miles away
A CARE home resident was able to watch her granddaughter's graduation over 4,623 miles away with help from tech savvy staff. 
Sheila Christie (pictured) desperately wanted to see Lara graduate from university in America so staff at Bield's Coxton Gardens in Glasgow made this possible with a live stream.  
Other tenants gathered to see Lara in her cap and gown at her graduation in Texas.  
Sheila's son Gary left Glasgow and moved to Texas with the rest of his family 14 years ago. Sheila has been out to visit her family in Texas four times, including on her 80th birthday.  
But when it became apparent his mother may miss on Lara's big day, Gary contacted staff at Coxton Gardens to see if anyone could help.  
Senior housing care assistant Josephine MacLennan saved the day by setting up a link to a live stream at the University of Texas. She then arranged the viewing in the communal area of the development.
