What made you choose to work in hauora?

MSD had implemented a training trial, to help people change careers, I had just quit my job and was put on this training list, of only 15 people were chosen.
I have never looked back after that, I get great satisfaction of helping people in their homes where they are most comfortable.
I’m a helper by nature, this is not just a job.
