“The quality of your life is directly proportional to the positive effect on others lives” by Chris Matakas
I have worked in the care industry for 15 years. In 2005 I joined Crossroads Caring for Carers as a Support Worker and in 2010 I had the honour of becoming a Team Leader. In those years, my work with various service users and carers has been both a humbling and eye-opening experience. I came to realise the value of ‘quality’ life and things many of us take for granted.
While, like my predecessor, I share her concerns faced by carers daily, I also feel strongly about making a difference to people’s lives which will enable them a good quality of life where possible.
