Gillian O`Shea- Senior Carer

Hi, my name is Gillian and I have been working in Amberley Home since 2015, I am qualified FETAC level 5 Senior Carer. I have been supporting Activities since 2018. My job is to plan and coordinate Activities with Activity staff for residents in Amberley Home.

Stimulating Residents is quite challenging as no one person, so we welcome any inputs from the residents themselves and their families and rely on that information and their life stories to try and make the daily activities interesting. And believe me, I learn more from them than they do from me and I love it.

If any of you has any suggestions and would like to discuss your loved one’s interests and what you think they would like, specially to those who can’t voice out what they want feel free to approach me or Gillian to discuss it or contact us at 025 40900 or email we look forward to hear from you.
