My name is Magdalena Lacová, I come from Slovakia, I have 55 years and for 35 years I live in the capital, Bratislava. I was born in a family of Lutheran priest and my mother was a teacher, but as the wife of a priest she was persecuted by the communist regime and could not work at her profession and had to endure much. I have a sister, 45-year-old, who is single and currently lives with my 83-year-old father. We grew up in a harmonious family where there was ever love and mutual respect.

My main hobbies are singing and painting. After the secondary school I have entered the choir Lú?nica. I have visited many countries of Europe performing and then worked in the external choir of the state opera. After the birth of my two daughters I was forced to give up this hobby and devoted my life to my family because for more than 15 years I have raised my children alone.

My two daughters (31-year old Lydia and 25-year old Milica) are also musically talented. Lydia is married, has a 1-year-old son and lives with her husband in the Czech Republic. The younger daughter Milica is a student and is soon graduating at the Faculty of Arts from Slovak language and literature. Both daughters have developed a very strong relationship to the children as well as older people. Lydia has also completed an university degree at Department of Therapeutic Education and since she was 16 years old while she studied she cared for children with various mental and physical disabilities (autism, hearing and visual impairment, cerebral palsy, etc.). Younger daughter was diagnosed with celiac allergy (intolerance for gluten) since 4 years old. Therefore I accustomed to cooking and baking for a special diet - without gluten.

In 2006 my mother's health deteriorated so much that she needed home care. Six months before her death I had cared for her exemplary with help from my children as I had to be employed but because of continuous illness and other health problems she succumbed to a heart attack and stroke.

In September 2011 I lost my job due to the worsening working conditions at the workplace and feeling the need for change at work and in my life in general I immediately decided to attend nursing course the Red Cross because I wanted to seek work abroad as an health care assistant. The nursing course I attended contained also a praxis in the rest home where I took care of people with different diagnoses. There I saw that the work is demanding mentally as well as and physically but it feels rewarding, useful and to help and aid gives me joy. Currently, I assist my friend who takes care of immobile 90-year old mother if necessary.

My hobbies still include singing and painting but I also enjoy learning foreign languages and I love cooking and baking. I began to learn English since 1990 and I used it at work (newspapers) and abroad (Ireland) where I worked for about a year but I learned German language only long ago and actively resumed only recently so it was also one of the reasons why I opted for the Netherlands.

Netherlands was also recommended to me by my friends and family who were there for business and know the country a bit and have only the best impressions. I am looking forward to working and helping in family environment and to know better the people and country.
