A Word From Our Staff

I find this job extremely rewarding. I really enjoy spending time with our young people and helping them to create happy memories. No two days are the same, I am challenged every day at work. I am faced with extreme behaviour at times and I am grateful that I have the comprehensive training on how to de-escalate a variety of situations. There is a strong support network in place at Care Visions, and my colleagues all share the same sense of purpose and determination that ensures our young people are at the heart of everything we do.
