Being a Care Assistant is an exhausting job, are you exhausted? Work for the wrong Care Provider and you could find yourself burnt out, working extremely long hours, running from one care call to the next and burning yourself out! What if it didn’t have to be like that?

A True Story from someone who joined us recently.

Many experienced Care Assistants join our team from other care providers because they hear about the way we work…. We are immensely different!  We recently had an experienced Care Assistant join us, who had been working for another local Homecare provider and she was tired and exhausted, but still loved caring for others and had even thought about giving it up! Luckily for us, she had heard great things about us. Since Jenny joined us, she looks better in herself, she has more colour in her cheeks, she loves our hour/two-hour long care calls and loves her job so much. She is so happy she made the move.  Jenny’s experiences will resonate with so many Care Assistants just like you.

  • She was running around doing 15 minute – 30-minute care calls and working 60 hours p/w.
  • She really was not giving the clients the time they really needed.
  • She had no time for herself at all.
  • Becoming disillusioned with care was overwhelming, but she knew she still cared.
  • She started to become ill.  She now works less hours, but still pretty much earns the same.
