Seeing as I have no holidays to look forward to this summer, I’ll be spending the majority of it working in a care home and saving up some money to hopefully buy a car. I’ve been wanting one for so long and it would make my life a lot easier at uni. Especially as I won’t have to rely on other people to get to placements or go wherever I want, whenever I want.
I’ve been working as a carer for around three years now and I do love the job. I mean having said that, it is hard not being paid what care assistants deserve. But I’ve recently started work at a new care home which I’m excited about because I’ve heard good things about it so hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy working there a lot more.
