What made you decide to work in adult social care?

I wanted to be able to help and care for others.

What is your role?

When I first started working in social care I was a domestic assistant. Thanks to some on the job training, I have progressed to the role of kitchen assistant.

 

Have you always worked in social care?

Before working for Old Prebendal House I was working in retail in the stockroom. I have progressed in my role, and have received training to get my food hygiene certificate.

What does your role involve?

Cleaning Icon

As a general assistant, I work in any part of the house where they need me. This could be in domestic, or hospitality. I help make sure rooms and communal areas are clean and tidy for the residents.

Food Preparation Icon

As a kitchen assistant I am involved with food preparation, cooking, and cleaning. I support the chef by helping prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner for the residents.

Talking Icon

I often sit and chat with the residents and take them out on walks around the grounds.

“I love working in adult social care and getting to be a part of the residents happy moments.”
