14 Sep Acacia Angel: Sarah’s journey
Previous to my role as an Acacia Angel I was a recruitment consultant and a bar manager, I didn’t even think my skill set was interchangeable to care. I gave up work to look after my dad when my mum passed away and he moved in with me as he had Parkinson’s. After his passing I decided to look for work again.
I hadn’t considered care but I saw an advert for Acacia and thought that sounds like a company I would love to work for. I fell in love with home care instantly! I loved it from day one as everyone was so friendly and helpful from out in the field to office staff.
Seeing the look on my customers’ face’s when I walk in having a laugh and a joke with them makes me know that they are pleased to see me! I can’t put into words how I feel knowing that I am helping people to live their lives as normally, independently and safely as they can.
This job also gives me flexibility to be able to look after my grandson as well, so the best of both worlds with Acacia.
I have been working with Acacia for just over 6 months and would love to further my career in care and knowing I can do this is amazing.
