On return to Australia, former pilot John Skewes has found a new passion for caring for others in the community with Calvary Community Care.
John Skewes with Home Care clients Bonnie and Jill;
As an international pilot, John has spent most of his life living overseas navigating around the globe. An eager sportsman and long distance runner, he has competed in the Boston and New York Marathons and swims regularly.
After resettling in Adelaide, John was looking to do something where he could get out and about and meet people. The Home Care Experts by Calvary appealed because he could learn different skills whilst supporting people of all ages.
"The professional training is a real advantage," says John, who has completed his Certificate III in Home and Community Care and manual handling and First Aid credentials. "It is great to be always learning and I will do anything from cleaning houses and showering clients to transport and respite."
John reflected and said, "I work with very friendly people, who appreciate it and that is what makes it all worthwhile for me."
