Is this the job for you?
“My name is Charlotte and I started working for this company just over 3-months ago, and it is the best thing I have ever done. When I started, I had no experience in the care sector, but I was recently made redundant from my previous job and I wanted to do something more rewarding. This Support Worker role was perfect for me. I got the best training, shadowed another member of staff and I always feel supported by Senior staff and the rest of the team.”
“I support a lady called Louise who lives in her own flat and she has a wonderful personality. I will help her first thing in the morning with her routine, giving her the choices for breakfast, deciding what clothes she wants to wear that day and letting her decide what music we listen to whilst we tidy up and do household chores. This sounds simple to some of us, but these decisions are big for Louise. She also loves a special trip out to the cinema, but crowds can scare her, and she gets anxious. I help Louise get ready to go, decide what she needs to take with her, how much money she needs, and reassure her and explain things to her in a way she will understand. She has the best time, and it makes my day seeing her smile and laugh and knowing I have played a big part in her daily life.”
