Shortly after finishing my final year practice placement at Care Direct Plus South I was excited to be offered a post as a qualified Occupational Therapist within the team. Several years later I feel like the opportunities for learning and development are endless. Training courses help me reflect on current issues in social care. Whilst supervision with my peers and clinical supervisor, and support from my colleagues, help me develop and think critically about my practice, enabling me to strive for the best interventions and outcomes for clients.
I have a young family and feel that I have a work-life balance which works well for me. There are so many wonderful places to visit in Devon, plenty of family friendly attractions and the moors and seaside are never too far away.
I love my job; visiting and assessing people in their home environment, supporting them to remain at home with increased safety and independence, it’s a brilliant job in a beautiful part of the country.
