Amanda's story

Amanda talks about she changed careers from retail to care.


I joined Westcountry Home Care two and a half years ago. I had no experience in care other than caring for my mum who had Alzheimer’s.

After working in retail for 15 years I wanted a change and following a recommendation from my daughter to join Westcountry I applied.

All of my experiences have been enjoyable, especially making new friends and meeting clients and their families. I’ve enjoyed supporting people with different needs and helping them with their day-to-day lives.

It’s a challenging job but extremely rewarding. Every day is different. The in-house training is good and always ongoing, alongside some amazing training from out-of-house.
