Jennifer works for HomeInstead Senior Care in Cardiff where no two days are the same. Her role ranges from client to client, from helping them up in the mornings, preparing their meals and administering medication.
Question 1: Why is it important to have Welsh speakers in social care?
“I have a few clients that speak Welsh and they feel so much more at ease with me speaking their language.”
Question 2: What does a typical day look like for you?
“Every day is different. It’s not monotonous and you don’t know what you’re going to walk into because all clients’ needs are different.”
Question 3: Have you always wanted to work in the sector?
“Not at all. I had a career change after seventeen years, but I wish I’d considered going into the care industry a lot sooner.”
