What advice do you have for people in this sector to be successful?
Anyone who would want to join the disability sector needs to be compassionate, and should truly have the willingness of making a positive impact on the lives of others. They should be able to value their role and should always have the “can do” spirit.
I think hard work, passion and dedication toward work is most important to be successful in any sector. But in health care especially in disability secor kindness and ability to overcome challenges, and motivation is also equally important as other skills. People working in this sector can make a big change in community so be passionate and re sponsible about your work.
