Pros: plenty of training to go on, unfortualty one course i would like to go on is makaton, but they dont do it in my area with mencap
Cons: very long hours for example 3pm till 11pm, then do the sleep in, and wouldnt finish the following day until 4pm, very tiring.
I have learned a lot in my job and love caring and supporting people that need it. My job is very rewarding and seeing my Tenants faces when they have achieved goals/wishes that they wanted to do and thanking me for supporting them to do this.This could be anything from a pair of shoes, taking them to shows, holidays supporting them through difficult – more... times.a typical day at work is making sure my tenants are supported to cook, supported with medication any support that they need. updating support plans and risk assessments, taking phone calls, making sure i am recording anything that i have done with my tenants and how there day has been at their day center.as i love my job and as i ask for support or help from either my work colleagues or manager when i need it, i don't really find my work hard.In my work i do normally work on my own initiative but do work also as part of a team and when we have any problems or idea's we bring them up at our team meeting or leave a note either by email or in the communications book. – less
