About

I became a live-in carer for my landlady. I shared the house with her. She had no family and when she got ill I slowly started helping her until she was unable to take care of herself any more. Before that, I was a store assistant manager but it was never a job I enjoyed. I have known my landlady for the past 12 years as she was a family friend. Her condition has improved considerably over the last 2 years and I now have more free time. I have no real professional knowledge that can be related to the care field other than the online courses I have been taking to give myself better knowledge and understanding of care and support.
