I’ve been working in care since 2016 and love every moment of it!
As a compassionate and caring person, I enjoy helping people, especially the most vulnerable. It’s great to see improvements in their wellbeing and independence, and the positive impact of anything that I have done personally. I agree 100% with whoever said that “He helps himself by helping others”.
There are challenges though, especially around understanding the needs of those we support and communicating openly and effectively, both to them and others.
Away from work, I sing in my local church choir, which means regular rehearsals and plenty of practice!
