Meet Jerry, a retired teacher who now works as a carer

Jerry, a visiting carer in Redditch“After I retired I worked for a while supporting young adults with learning difficulties, but I soon came to realise that the job needed a lot more energy than I now had,” Jerry shares.

Today, Jerry is a Helping Hands carer and visits customers in his town of Redditch on a part-time basis. No longer doing any of the physical tasks, one of the biggest things he loves about his role is leaving people in a better state than when he arrived.

“If you have that interest in care, try it,” he says. “Most people in this world are capable of kindness and consideration. Doing this job brings out that caring aspect of your nature, which you may not have realised you had.” Read Jerry’s story
