My mother, my patient

Nelia Aban

It's a long way from the Philipines to the UK, but a journey many care staff make. They come with many motivations, but central to them is the desire to care. Nelia comes to the UK to provide care for the elderly, and to provide a better life for her family in the Philipinnes. That journey brings her commitment, devotion and skills to her elderly clients in the UK, but when her mother develops dementia back in the Phillipines, her experiences of caring in the UK also feed back into her awareness of her mother's health back home.
