This early start continued through volunteering in a local care home before university and working as a Home Carer primarily for the elderly during my vacations and as a residential Carer for adults with learning difficulties. My life then took a totally different direction and I worked in the corporate world for 20 years finally as an HR Director. Choosing early retirement (it really was early I’m currently 47) has enabled me to return to my passion of caring once more and had the privilege of working with a care company for almost 2 years. In that time I achieved my Care Certificate and met many lovely people along the way with differing needs; advanced dementia with double incontinence; palliative care of someone with bowel cancer and body wide secondaries up until hospice admission and those with age related physical limitations. Since leaving this company I have worked in a Consensus owned residential care facility for adults with complex learning difficulties supporting the individuals there to live their best lives. Both companies are great with training so I am up to date with all regulatory and additional training. Food can often become a chore for individuals and I enjoy making food enjoyable by involving them in the decision making and cooking process as much as possible. I enjoy gardening at home and where possible spend time with those that like to doing light gardening or visiting garden centres. When it comes for quieter times, reading aloud or sharing puzzles can be relaxing way too spend the time as can a good chat. I’ve travelled extensively so can usually join in with anecdotes on the places we have in common and love to learn about new ones.
