Adriana’s first Live-in Care placement
Adriana’s training and development is ongoing but she has settled into a sometimes challenging but ultimately rewarding career that suits her lifestyle. Most importantly for us, she is the right person to support Mrs J, ensuring her safety, health and well-being. For Mrs J, Adriana’s support has enabled her to continue to live in her own home, surrounded by the friends and neighbours that are so important to her.
Before I met Mrs J, I was given a really detailed profile. I arrived and was met by the Regional Coordinator and Care Worker. I felt comfortable because I was shown what to do and knew that I always had help or advice on the end of a phone. At the beginning it was sometimes difficult because I was new to care but with the help of Mrs J and my Coordinator we worked it out. We have a good relationship and it is a privilege to help her – it is not always easy as she is getting older but we work as a team. My Coordinator visits us and I am now Mrs J’s permanent Care Worker. I work 6 weeks and have one week off – this really suits my life and I am now saving for a deposit my first flat. I am now doing a distance learning course to help me with my career in care.
