I have been working in care for over 35 years, covering all areas within the industry, starting out as a carer and progressing my way into the senior role I am in today.
I currently hold my Level 3 in Health and Social Care, which I feel helps me to be the best I can be. I have really enjoyed my time working in care. I find it such a rewarding job, knowing I am playing a big part in keeping people independent and living within their own homes.
I never run out of things to talk about with my clients, as I have a keen interest in dogs and show mine regularly. My clients love looking at the photos and coming on the journey with me, and I think that helps them, especially the ones that are unable to get out and about.
I’m hoping that I can continue to work in care for as long as possible, as I really couldn’t see myself doing another job. I love helping people to remain independent – it’s what I was born to do.
