Caring is such a rewarding job that I can’t even call it a job. I love taking care of people in need and I began four years ago when I was working as a painter.

I still love to paint and do art but I can do this alongside my caring roles. I have found that painting taught me to be patient and thoughtful, which are key skills for caring.
I spend some of my time living in Greece and I am in the UK the rest of the year. I love all kinds of animals, but especially dogs.

Vicky was employed as a carer for a lady who had vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
