I am glad that I chose Ashfields for my work experience, and I’m very happy this week. I’m very sad that today is my last day because I found the staff members really kind and supportive, also I loved the residents, they are very nice and sweet. If possible I would want to stay longer, and get to know more about the residents.

I think this whole week was very fun and relaxed especially the last few days. Although I’ve been in the kitchen for over three hours on some days and I found it a bit boring and tiring, but for me it’s a very good experience.

I don’t know if it is possible to continue for me to come and visit and help the residents and staff. I desire to get a better relationship with the residents. Maybe you could try and arrange something for me, to come in periodically to be involved with activities with residents. I would much appreciate this. This is mainly because thinking of not getting in touch with the residents and staff, it’s making me feel a bit sad.

For me personally, I’m the kind of person that needs a longer period of time to get used to talking to people, and therefore the longer the time, the more bright and breezy I will be. So a week is a bit short for me, and that’s why I have been very shy and talked with a very quiet voice. Although I am not at work experience anymore but I still want to get involved and participate more.

I think Ashfields Care Home is a very nice, comfortable and relaxed environment, also very reliable too.
Thanks for giving me this opportunity.
Yours faithfully
