Sandra – General Manager
Our Manager Sandra Lea joined the Company in 2011. Although her educational background is in Business Management and Employment Law, one of her first steps within the Company was to sign up to undertake the Carer’s training so as to keenly understand the work and world of Care Staff.
She gained great personal insight into the challenges of older people by walking alongside her parents as they lived with Motor Neurone disease, Parkinson’s and Dementia. Sandra values people of all ages and is quick to notice the strengths and talents of each individual. She loves to see people released to contribute to the overall work of the Company in the area of their strength.
Sandra is proud to lead the dedicated Company team of 90 Care staff and 16 Office staff for whom she has an ‘open-door’ policy. Her mission is to lead and inspire all staff to give of their very best so that the quality of care provided by Finglas Home Care is at the highest level of best practice standards.
Sandra pushes the Company forward on a journey of continuous improvement, welcoming the future HIQA regulation of homecare. As Manager, Sandra also networks with other relevant organisations and is a member Dublin Home Care Partners Consortium and of the Strategy Committee for the National Community Care Network – an organisation of 20 non-profit homecare providers who consistently advocate for best quality standards of person-centred care for those who need home support.
