I have 7 years experience as a support worker in the UK, firstly two years for a company called Horizon Care working with teenagers from broken homes, who lived in shared houses. Most of the clients had behavioural problems. I worked shifts there making meals, driving them to appointments, school, shopping and general running of the homes.
Then I worked for 5 years for the NHS as part of a team looking after learning disabled and autistic men in their purpose built home in Bolton, Lancashire. This was a challenging job working 11 hour shifts, including waking nights.
I was fully trained in all aspects of personal care, have NVQ2 in health and social care, first aid, administration of meds, fire safety, manual handling, de-escalation, part one Child Protection etc. I can send you a full list of my qualifications if you need it.
