After ten years of beaches and ample access to Vitamin D, Community Care worker Liam decided to come back from Australia to Belfast.
On return, Liam spent a few years working in several driving and warehouse jobs, so was very used to being quite isolated, but enjoyed being out and about.
But something was missing…. and the thought of providing Care appealed, but could Liam do it?
“To be honest the thought of being a Community Care worker scared me, I was used to being isolated on my own company in the jobs I did here, so didn’t know if I would cope with going into other people’s personal space and then helping them with their quality of life”.
To some people, moving into Community Care can be quite daunting and that is perfectly normal thing… it’s a big responsibility to make a difference to another person’s life.
“I really enjoy the interaction, the characters, the laughs and smiles…. I have really been taken aback to how well I have settled in, my colleague is great (Liam works on a double run), and the wider team have been really helpful”.
Liam is not long with #NWCare and has already shown great enthusiasm and professionalism….
Thank you Liam, for making a difference in #Belfast
“Doing this work has inspired me, and in a short period of time, I have firmly made my mind up to use it as a platform for a career in Mental Health….”
