Experience: 9 Years
My first job in care was working for DR Barnardos looking after teenagers with behavioural problems. I have also worked with sexually abused young people who have become abusers themselves.
I worked for six years in a residential home for children with all kinds of conditions including Autism, Downs syndrome, Prada Willy, aspergers and physical disability.
Recently I have been working in a home that has five men in residence with severe mental disabilities.
My role in all all of these positions has been one of personal care, teaching social skills, giving medication, taking part in annual reviews with social workers and all other interested parties, writing reports, taking service users on trips, home visits, court appearances, key and co key working and other related tasks.
I like to work in jobs where I am able to give back to people and caring fulfils that need in me.
