After caring for a family member who required nursing and EMI care, I realised I wanted to be a carer. I started applying for care assistant posts and I was offered a position within an EMI unit. Within 6 months I had passed all my exams and had been offered a senior position.
My role within care fills me with pride. Knowing I am making a difference to someone's life is the most rewarding 'job' I have ever done.
Dignity, care and empathy are key to me.
I have experience in terminal illnesses, EMI needs, nursing needs and end of life care.
I then went into learning disabilities and challenging behaviour, as a team leader.
Due to a recent move I am now back as a senior for those suffering with dementia.
