I have gained skills and knowledge on how to support people with learning disabilites with their daily activities, to communicate and establish trust relationship to them and their family etc. Support them with their wishes and needs towards helping them to achieve as much independence as possible.

one free meal in each shift
long hours but always given an hour break which is fair
