We are all committed to improving the standards of care for our elderly people, to give them options to continue to lead as full a life as possible in their later years. Although many carers have already worked in the health sector, professional experience is not always needed. For instance, you may have cared for a family member in the past. The important ingredients for the role are universal, such as compassion, dedication, common sense, a positive, outgoing personality and a good level of fitness. Needless to say, you’ll be comfortable working on your own.
Don’t worry. As a carer, you’ll never feel on your own. As part of your professional development, there’s a real sense of team spirit. As a demanding job, the support on offer tends to be very high. Carers and clients are carefully matched, making sure you and the person you’re looking after will get on well throughout your time together. In fact, your wellbeing is taken just as seriously as the client’s.
Supervision is also there when needed, along with expert coaching and mentoring. All so you can deliver the very best care, without ever feeling you’re being left to cope alone.
If you’re brilliant at your job, there’s also the potential to step up into a supervisor or management role, which means you’ll enjoy lots of scope for career progression with us. And of course, you can relax knowing you’re working for a trusted, experienced company.
We’re passionate about training carers to be the very best they can be. Our training and induction process has since is inline with Skills for Care which is the strategic body for the adult social care workforce. Our training covers the essential skills and knowledge to provide care, in line with the Care Certificate. You’ll learn how to support someone at home, including safe use of hoists, personal care, dementia care and medication support, to name a few.
