Experience: 1 Year
I am qualified social worker (University in Pilsen in Czech Republic) which is near to social care, not quite the same, but I completed practical training with people in need, together more than 1200 hours, Basically my main experience was with a charity´s home care, which includes helping with ADL, home services, shopping, preparing meals (which depends always on the wishes of the person, but on recommended diet as well). Before I started studying, I had a short - term experience in an Alzheimer's centre when I was only 18. And during my studies, I helped in home care for elderly people, which was a nice time, because I participated in occupational therapy. I was reading a books with these lovely people, we were doing all sorts of handy works. I had been educated by them how to knit, which was so nice. Now I know that communication, patience, honesty and a big heart are the most important things. I am really into social work and social care even though I didn't start a job as a social worker. I think it is not about "this is a job", it is about "this is what I want to do, what is my mission, that's what I believe in".
