Hi I'm Andy
I have a number of year in independent care although it all started with 2 years caring for my mother in her own home, although I had the obvious emotional issues that in some ways made it harder i.e. providing personal care to your own mother I found that I was drawn to helping people after she passed and went on to other care work in both care homes and the community. It is very rewarding especially when you can make people smile who may not have smiled for along time, people are still people even if you think they have diminished capacity?
