What made you decide to be a carer?
I wanted to make a real difference to people’s lives and after 5 years, that passion hasn’t dulled away
Over the years, Cyan has willingly worked all the hours she could because she knows that all the while, she was giving someone the care they need to live well and in Cyan’s words: “I couldn’t imagine a more fulfilling way to spend my time.”
What’s your favourite memory with a client?
“I have so many wonderful memories! Sometimes it’s not even the big things, it’s often the little things that make me smile. I remember being told that my client wished I was her granddaughter – it’s always lovely to hear that!”
How has being a TrinityCarer changed your life?
“Being a TrinityCarer has changed my life in so many ways. When I started, I was a bit uncomfortable to take responsibility and make decisions, but every day as a carer can bring new challenges and you’ve got to be confident enough to be responsive to changing needs. The more I got to know my clients, the more I noticed when anything didn’t seem right and my instincts are usually accurate!”
Without Trinity, Cyan explains that she wouldn’t have discovered her passion for caring for others and Trinity have supported her in so many ways.
I took the qualifications I needed to enrol on a nursing degree and now I’m nearly qualified, I know that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I couldn’t thank Trinity enough for that.
How has being a TrinityCarer helped you as a nurse?
“Having practical experience of caring has been so important because it reminds you that patients are human beings with feelings and experiences and lives of their own. Caring has certainly helped me understand how my patients feel and I take the time to support them emotionally as well as medically.”
