Health and Social Care is both a vocation and passion. It enforces a very positive impact on the lives of the people being cared for. Providing health and social care is both challenging and rewarding. Aside from genuine passion to serve, you have to possess the knowledge and skills necessary to better perform your health care and social work duties.
