I have been working in care for over 30 years. In this time, I have covered most areas of care. You would think that after all this time, I have seen everything relating to care, but my clients still like to surprise me with something new, keeping me on my toes.

The generation that I care for have a wealth of knowledge, and really enjoy passing this on. I could sit and listen to them for hours.

From my first day, I knew working in care was the right job for me. I’m very outgoing and bubbly, and I enjoy seeing the clients’ faces light up when I walk in. I couldn’t see myself working anywhere else for the foreseeable future.
