Healthcare assistant, determination to succeed

My work as a health carer has taught me valuable personal lessons, particularly that it is all too easy to take one's health and freedom for granted when it is not threatened by disability. I have learnt to support patients with their physical and psychological needs. I have come to understand the key role of confidence-building with those in my care and the need to develop their self esteem. There have also been many administrative duties, such as keeping proper records and reporting to unit mangers and community hospitals. The central skill, though, continues to be the ability to maintain good relations with often deeply troubled people and to deal calmly with problems.
I enjoy being able to offer comfort to my clients, to bring a smile to their faces, to escort them, listen to their concerns and to reassure them. My love for the profession is accompanied by real determination to succeed and to gain a degree in the field.
I have also worked as a volunteer care worker, ensuring the safety, welfare and individual daily needs of my clients, encouraging independence and maintaining a safe and pleasant environment. I am a hard-working and well organised individual, reliable, punctual and meticulous in matters of detail.
