A former construction worker is building a new career as a homecare assistant with Westmorland Homecare.

Sam Parker, 28, is delighted with what he says is a very rewarding job. "When you wake up in the morning and look ahead to what the day has in store it doesn’t feel like it’s work," he said. "It’s more like you are going out to help friends and family."

"I also take some of my clients out on social visits. We might go bowling, to the cinema or out for a coffee and cake at Levens Hall or Rydal Hall. I took a younger client to a gaming shop in Kendal - I am an avid gamer so we have a lot in common."

He said the main satisfaction he gained from the job was helping to make people’s lives easier. "If it wasn’t for me, they would not have the quality of life they have."

"The best thing is helping people, and knowing you've made a difference" says careworker
