Chris on Working in Care

Posted on
24 August 2023

The best thing about my job is seeing the difference in people we support, some people come to us and are with us for a long time, and it's great to see improvements over time.


The best thing that's happened to me over the weeks/months is just the simple things like getting someone out of bed that would be quite happy to stay in bed all day and not interact. Every day may be different so it's different things all the time but yes simple things like that make me happy.


The best day in work for me is when everything runs smoothly. When we are fully staffed and working together as a proper team and being able to provide that good quality service to people we support.


Things I'd wish people knew about my job would be that they know it’s not all about providing personal care to people, that you will learn a lot of skills over time and know how challenging at times our roles can be as well as having fantastic days.

They also need to know it takes a certain person to do the job we do, they need to be confident and use their own initiative.
