I have officially been working in care for 17 months now, but prior to this I was a full-time carer for my mum. This is what lead me into a career in care because when my mum passed away, I really missed that caring role, so I decided to follow my heart into care.
I really enjoy giving back to our clients, especially as when my mum had carers, I saw just how important they were to her. I enjoy reading books as well as doing arts and crafts, which my clients also enjoy, so this gives me something to share with them.
As I am still fairly new to care, I hope to develop my knowledge over the next few months and complete my Health and Social Care diploma.
