Hi, @Sam Luvit , you don't know me - I've been around on here a long time (Mum died 2 and a half years ago - I never thought I'd be saying that, though of course it's inevitable) and been reading your thread. Glad you are so enthusiastic and it's going well for you at the new caring job. One word of caution, though I think it may be unnecessary in your case as you sound quite feisty! - don't let the agency take advantage of you. I know ours did to the girls on their books. Some of them were run ragged going from one call to another, often overstaying their time if necessary, then ending up finishing late. And you may find some people working with you not as good and keen as you too. We had some really apathetic carers and the training was poor - some couldn't use a hoist for example. But are you doing solo calls rather than double? All the best.
