My name is Ellen. I live in Vauxhall. I've been a carer for about six years. I like the companionship. I like talking to people, especially if they are elders, they can tell me about their past, the history, World War II, how it was for them. And also, it's rewarding. I like going to museums, art galleries. I like well-manicured parks, Buckingham Palace, just walking around, really up-kept places of interest.
