Dejalmo Pereira Maia Jr, better known as Junior, is Home Care Preferred Barnet’s enigmatic new Care Manager. Junior has a deep passion for the sector and has held positions of responsibility in other care organisations that he has worked at.
When I first met Junior I was taken aback by his comprehensive knowledge and “go getter” attitude. I later learned that a personal journey led him to the care sector and ignited his passion for providing care. I was also surprised to find out that his background wasn’t in care at all, in fact he had graduated from Law School in Italy and completed a PhD in the UK soon afterwards. Juniors journey into the care sector started after completing his PhD. Junior experienced a short-term illness which meant he needed to be cared for in his own home. Junior told me:
“The experience made me realise the need for good care out there in the community and ever since then I have been refining myself in the field”
Since that time Junior has become an expert in the provision of care, his unique perspective as someone who has received care means that he now has outstanding knowledge and experience. I was curious to find out what Junior felt he would bring to Home Care Preferred Barnet. He is clearly an intelligent and driven individual so must have some good ideas of what he could bring to the new branch. Junior told me that he wanted to lead Home Care Preferred Barnet from the front:
“Being hands on with the team will ensure outstanding levels of care are being provided at all times”
This attitude is something that resonates with me personally and is also in tune with Home Care Preferred Barnet’s fundamental principles. We believe that good leaders should do so by being on hand for their team and leading by example. It is an attitude that we have see first hand motivates a team and results in top quality levels of care.
I was interested to find out how much Junior knew about Home Care Preferred Barnet. He was able to tell me that he was attracted to our innovative attitude and the inclusiveness that we encourage throughout our extended network of colleagues and franchise owners. Junior told me a little about his personal plan at Home Care Preferred Barnet:
“At Home Care Preferred Barnet, I aim to help devise and assist with the company’s strategy and ensure we deliver care that is top quality in a safe responsive and effective way”
