What inspires me in my role?
“I am lucky that I get to meet and work with a lot of inspirational older people in my role. The strength of people in the face of adversity, such as the determination to carry on following the loss of a spouse or to keep living the life they choose after a devastating diagnosis of dementia, is absolutely inspirational. Working with a centenarian who remains living independently, or a person with incapacitating health issues who recovers to thrive in the community once more really opens my eyes to the strength of humankind, and provides me with a level of positivity that I can’t help but apply to my own day to day working life.”
