We know that our social care staff in North Central London have faced enormous challenges during the pandemic. In KeepingWell NCL’s latest podcast, Marina Palomo, KeepingWell Hub Support Lead, draws from her experience working with staff across social care to acknowledge these challenges and show her admiration and respect for our care colleagues’ skills and continuing dedication.
Marina also reflects on how overcoming these challenges may mean that some of us, or our teams, might need a little extra support, and gives some guidance for taking the first steps to access staff support through the KeepingWell NCL Hub.
Marina is a KeepingWell NCL Hub Support Lead, whose 18 years of experience as a Clinical Psychologist working with families, carers and staff teams has given her a strong appreciation of the importance of supporting those who support others. She is committed to sustaining compassionate cultures of care and work. Marina’s her previous role prior to joining the Hub involved supporting care home teams and residents during the pandemic.
