Overview

Since working in childcare for many years I always wanted to move to adult care. Over the last three years I have gained lots of experience from carers and nurses which has made me confident and skilled in what I do.  I’m very proud that I’m a carer I find it very rewarding, I feel that I discover something new from every person I care for.
