I came to the United Kingdom in 2014 after being recruited in Portugal by a UK care company. I was trained in all aspects of community care work visiting clients in their own homes. I learnt a lot about various types of medical conditions, how to assist clients in a variety of settings and the administrative side of care work.
As I am keen to learn as much as I can about all different aspects of caring I went on to work in a residential care home focusing on dementia patients. As part of this ongoing learning I then became a live in carer to give me greater overall knowledge of all aspects of caring.
I have become very interested in more specialised care work particularly in spinal care.
I am very keen to work, study and learn to become a spinal care home assistant as this something that I would like to do as a long term career.
