How was your time at the BFS in Bad Kötzting?
"The cohesion in the group is what I remember most. It was great. We really stuck together as a class. Everyone questioned everyone, which made school and the exams a lot easier."

What are the most beautiful aspects of the job for you?
"For me, it's the mix that makes it so appealing. It's nice when you can give recommendations for the care sector - whether private or professional - and these are then successfully implemented. The intertwining of the various sub-areas also means that the work never gets boring . There's a lot more to it than meets the eye in public."

What advice do you have for prospective caregivers?
"Don't take everything too seriously. I was more of a perfectionist myself - but that's not always possible. Especially in everyday working life, every situation is individual and there isn't always the only right way. Make sure there is a good exchange and ask questions, are for it Instructor there."
