Over the last 8 years I have gained experience of working within a day centre for adults with physical/learning difficulties. Some of my duties include; personal care, assisting with meal time, PEG feeding, administrating medication, oropharyngeal suctioning, lone working in the community alongside assisting with different sports and activities inside the day centre. E.g. Wheelchair football, boccia, ceramics, living skills, going on the trampoline and swimming. Alongside this I have also worked in respite care where I take the individual I am supporting away on holiday which includes around the clock care. The summer of ####/#### I worked on a special needs summer camp for both adults and children with disabilities, it was an amazing experience and gave me a insight into the care industry from different countries. I am a caring person and feel that I have the right attributes and personality to make a difference in this job role. I am able to listen to and communicate effectively with individuals. Caring is something I have always enjoyed doing, although I do respect that they may want to keep their independence and sometimes it is more appropriate to assist them with the task
