After graduating as a social worker within the Hungarian hospice sector I knew that I wanted to be a full time carer. I researched the UK providers and attended a number of interviews and they all went well however Helping Hands stood out and were clearly the organisation who gives their Carers the most ongoing support. The training and selection week was well-organised, the Helping Hands team were really helpful and treated us all as potential colleagues. My first placement started in September, 2013 with a 19 year old wheelchair-bound man with the intention of supporting him in his daily routine and enabling him to live and enjoy his own complete life. We get on really well, I take advantage of my previous experience and learn new skills. I am really enjoying the chance to make a difference. I know myself that I would always want to stay at home and have the chance to be among my loved ones, to live in your own home as long as possible is always the best choice. As a Helping Hands carer I am willing to contribute to people’s life this way.
