Lindsey's Story;

I may be in my early 50s but I have only being working in the care environment for almost a year and honestly wish I had made the move into caring a long time ago.   It is only now with the satisfaction I get everyday that I realise how unhappy I was becoming in my previous job.  

I had been self-employed working from home for 12 years but decided that when my youngest child started high school I would take on a whole new career.  I had been around care workers through a care package that my mum was receiving and I decided to look into the different types of care work. It was then that I decided that I wanted to work in the community to help support people who wanted to remain at home for as long as possible. Due to my own parents situation I knew how important this was to people.   I am so glad I took the step.  I love every thing about my job!  

I love the ongoing training I receive and the fact that I know I have the correct knowledge to carry out my job.   I love talking to my customers and finding out about them.  I am so glad that Bluebird didn't think that I was "too set In my ways" to take on a new career and have helped my development every step of the way.
