    I want to be a Healthcare Assistant in a hospital, but apparently I have to have previous experience in care work to apply.
    Only thing is, I don't want to work in a Care Home for just the elderly, do I have any other options?

    Try care homes for the disabled, or those with mental health problems! There will be others around where you live!

    You could do work experience in a care home or wherever for disabled people.
    Could you get some sort of work experience in a hospital or somewhere.

    You could work with special needs children/adults. I have volunteered with them and i found it very rewarding and was a brilliant experience
