Justyna Pokorska – Joint MD
Caring for people has always been present in both my personal and professional life. Growing up in Poland instilled in me strong family values and respect for the elderly, values which have remained with me throughout my life. Being able to support my loved ones means so much to me and having the chance to be a part of the Visiting Angels family has given me an opportunity to share my caring nature, not only with our wonderful clients but also with our caregivers who are at the heart of everything we do.
My career prior to Visiting Angels includes retail, customer service, Ofsted registered childminder and my most recent being the NHS as a community physiotherapy assistant. Adding my customer focus skills and my working experience in the NHS, gives me confidence in dealing with the different needs of our clients and their families.
With Visiting Angels, I will help create a change in the perception of care in the care industry. Our carer and client matching approach, where the client chooses a carer of their choice, a minimum 1 hour visit which will be quality time and not rushed, no more 15 minute visits! With Visiting Angels carer-centric approach I want caregivers to gain increased recognition in the industry for the hard work that they do. I am very proud and excited to be East Dorset and Hampshire representative of Visiting Angels UK.
