I have been working in care for almost 4 years. It is very rewarding to know that I am making a big difference to my clients’ lives. For some, we are the only people they see each day, so knowing I have played a part in brightening their day is a wonderful feeling.
I really enjoy working with people who have dementia, so I would like to further progress in this area. Dementia is becoming more widely recognised now, yet it is still such a taboo subject. I would love to have the knowledge to be able to help and support our clients, and their families, in more depth.
I enjoy a good chat with our clients, especially about their families and their past. It is insightful finding out how they were brought up. I have a daughter of my own, and the clients like me sharing my stories about our outings and what my daughter has been up to.
Over the next few years, I would like to develop my knowledge and progress my career within care.
