Levanne Croasdale – Quality Practice Leader
Levanne loves to see the people we support living their lives and achieving their goals. She feels really lucky that she gets to be involved in their support and meet their families. The highlight of her day is when she sees somebody smile and living life their way.
However, Levanne’s disability support journey began before she embraced the industry as her career path. Her son Declan was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus (a condition where there is an accumulation of fluid within the skull). After her son passed away, she felt a real desire to help others with disabilities. She feels that this experience is what makes her particularly invested in the people we support. It’s not about the money – it’s about the individuals and seeing their transformations. And as a Quality Practice Leader, Levanne is passionate that leading by example with this philosophy of personalised support is what makes the difference.
Before coming to ConneXu, Levanne spent 10 years as Team Leader at the BUPA care home dementia unit in Thames, and then went on to work with people with brain injuries and tetraplegia at Panacea Healthcare, also in Thames.
Levanne and her partner have 8 children and 5 acres in Kihikihi. As well as loving people, she also loves animals, of which they have several. You can imagine that they are a really busy, family-oriented bunch – and they love it that way.
