I was a caregiver in London in 2001 – Rita Dominic

Actress Rita Dominic has revealed the reason behind her temporary departure from acting in 2001/2002

I quit acting to become a caregiver in London – Rita Dominic

Speaking at the recent Women of Valour International Women’s Day event in Ghana, Rita journeyed back on why she left the movie industry to resort to taking care of elderly people in London.

She said: “Many of you do not know but in 2001/2002 I stopped acting, I left the industry, I moved to London because it was a very dark period of my life like I said, I had these issues, I just fell out with some friends I considered family and I just gave up acting for a while, I needed to get out, just leave that space for a minute.

“And then I moved to London and then gave up stardom and then, you won’t believe it. This is something I never told people before but while in London I was trying to make ends meet so I started working in a care home as a caregiver for adults with special needs, while some might view it as a step-down, I don’t.

“Taking care of others brought me joy and purpose at the time I needed it most because I remember I took care of my mother and my father when they were ill because I was alone with them.”
