Jacqueline Venables

I was born in Hednesford in the West Midlands and loved living in the county, racing over the fields, and jumping the brooks and streams. Then, when I was eight, we moved to Shelfield to be nearer my mother's family. I started work at the age of fifteen, straight from school. I married my much loved husband, Laurence, in the seventies and have two grown up daughters, three grandchildren and one great grandchild. But my pastime and interest has always been drawing and writing short stories and poems. I still love working as a care assistant.

About Book

The prospect of living and working in a residential care home does not enthuse the outsider, yet Jackie Venables writes a very entertaining story based on her experiences. The coming together of staff and residents with different characteristics produces infinite cameos... some sad, others with side splitting humour.


This is not all about commodes and administering to the residents. Opportunities for the carers to expand their ability to entertain, match residents in compatible pairs and be investigative into the wily ways of the ‘rogue resident' are prolific.


The making of rice wine on the premises causes havoc, the traditional Christmas and Easter Parties have all their own characters. Despite minor setbacks, the sheer resolution of Jackie and her colleagues really does make her vocation... A Job Worth Doing
