Flight attendant Karin van Bulderen turned toward a job in healthcare for the elderly. Early on in the pandemic she anticipated that the travel industry would be facing hard times.
“When KLM offered me a trajectory in elderly care I jumped at the opportunity. After an online training I now work for a healthcare facility for people with beginning dementia. It is very much to my liking. As a flight attendant, I also often paid extra attention to elderly passengers. Skills like being hospitable, stress resistant and able to act quickly are very useful in this work.”
