"I love supporting people at home and in the community, making an impact on someone's life is incredibly rewarding. From older people living with dementia, to younger people with a learning disability, it's good to help people reach their full potential. One of my favourite parts of the job is when you get that breakthrough and the person you're caring for really starts to trust you."
