Connected to Care – Opeyemi Alabede

My name is Opeyemi Mariam Alabede, and I work with Hartwig Care Ltd. I am connected to the care sector as a healthcare assistant, and I love my job so much. It provides me with numerous opportunities that have completely changed my perspective on life.

I love the fact that I am making a difference in other people’s lives. I know that what I do helps them maintain their independence in their own homes. My clients are always happy to see me walking through the door, and I love seeing them every day.

Caring for other people makes me feel valued. You can’t beat the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve helped put a smile on someone’s face.

My personal connection to the Care Sector runs deep. I come from a diverse family background where from a young age we are taught to care and show love not just to ourselves but to the elderly and vulnerable in our homes and society, so caring is just a big part of me.

I enjoy what I do because it allows me to make a positive impact on people’s lives every day. Being able to support others through their challenges brings me fulfillment and purpose. It’s rewarding to be someone they can rely on for comfort and assistance. Knowing that I’m making a difference motivates me to continue giving my best in care work. Ultimately, it’s a privilege to be entrusted with the well-being and happiness of those I care for. As domiciliary carers, we provide the opportunity for people to remain largely independent in their own homes instead of having to rely on family and friends who have their own busy lives.

Being part of the Care Sector is not just a job for me; it’s a calling. I’m committed to making a positive impact every day and feel privileged to contribute to the well-being of others through my work at HARTWIG CARE LIMITED.
