I live in the south east and have had arthritis for some years but now it is spreading to new joints which makes working life extra hard. I manage retirement housing schemes and I swear I am worse off than the people I support.
The main reason for me joining is to ask for some advice if anyone can help. I have been in my job for about 15 years and every 3 years we have to renew our 1st aid certificates and I am booked on a course in February. 3 years ago I found it very difficult and painful to kneel on the floor to do CPR. In order to get the certificate you MUST kneel on the floor. I guess I wont pass it this year. I have asked my manager and she has just said that I should speak to the trainer. If I don't pass am I likely to get the sack? I 'only' have 3 more years till I can retire.
Any advice or signposting would be very gratefully received.
