Saskia is a community care support worker in home care. She previously worked in bars, shops and hotels and started working in care by chance but says “It’s the best decision I’ve ever made.”
She is currently doing a diploma in health studies and has been accepted into university to do a nursing degree.
For people considering working in the sector, Saskia says “If you’re thinking about going into care, I would try it. Until you try it, you really don’t know how rewarding it is. You help people and there’s no better feeling.”
“It’s a great job, I did try it and I never thought I would. I’ve come so far; I never dreamed of ever doing a degree – care has been the path that has led me there.”
