Anthony Odigie started working as a volunteer carer for St Mary’s Hospital before joining The Care Team 6 years ago. During this time he has never lost the inspiration that drove him to volunteer all those years ago. The more involved Anthony became, the more commitment he gave.
He is frequently the first one up and the last one to bed: a work ethic that has been a driving force through tough times.
Anthony’s strength lies in his experience, commitment and versatility. He frequently handles some of the most complex cases on the roster, while always being more than willing to go out of his way for anyone, whatever their needs. This experience is matched by his charm. As all carers know, they work in a delicate profession. Deftness of spirit is as necessary as deftness of hand. Through his charm, intelligence and sincerity Anthony has won fans across Manchester.
For many clients, their carer is one of the only consistent aspects of their lives, a well from which they can draw strength. In this regard, Anthony is more like an ocean. The vastness of his spirit is embodied by the fact he is well known and well-loved amongst those lucky enough to have him as a carer, and we are honoured to send just a little recognition his way.
