I am qualified occupational therapist and my degree gave me a higher level of experience in care. I am looking for extra work to top up my hours. For the past 8 years, I have been working as a health care assistant and have worked closely alongside patients with dementia, neurological conditions, different physical and mental health disabilities and end-of-life care. I believe that everyone deserves the best quality of life possible and being able to complete everyday tasks is a part of this. It is easy to take these tasks for granted and not consider the effect an inability to complete them would have. I want the opportunity to make a difference by helping people gain independence and increase confidence. I want to be part of such a rewarding and diverse career; working closely with people and helping them to progress. The years in care taught me to effectively communicate with people of all ages and abilities, as well as how to encourage and support people in tasks that help them be independent. These skills will help me form a better rapport with service users as an occupational therapist and a carer. I learned to adapt my communication to support patients with cognitive needs by speaking clearly and not overloading information. My desire to learn and develop further skills encouraged me to study and finish 3 degrees that includes International economic relations, Public relations and finally Occupational therapy which gives me a sense of purpose and I now consider to be my true vocation.
