Domiciliary Care Worker (Current Employee) – Kent – 27 June 2017
Due to poor management and lack of organisation it is possible to be on hand for over 14 hours but only work 4. The set up does not allow for consistency of care and the poor organisation does not appreciate constructive solutions to the organizing of workers

Support Worker (Current Employee) – Clacton-on-Sea, Essex – 21 February 2017
Looking after the elderly within their homes helping them with the day to day requirements of living. I have learned a lot in this job and have become a lot more appreciate towards my family and life. The hardest part of the job is saying goodbye to clients that do unfortunately pass away at times. The most enjoyable part of the job would be the rewarding feelings that come with looking after the elderly and making new friendships.
Care Support Assistant (Current Employee) – Wisbech – 23 October 2016
An early start in order to assist elderly and / disabled people with their personal care, getting dressed, preparing food and drinks, providing medication. Using hoists, stand aids and other equipment needed to ensure the safety and comfort of the service user. Working either alone or as a double. After a morning (breakfast) shift and a short break, its on to the lunchtime shift. Again preparing lunches, drinks, assisting with toileting and personal care. Back again in the evening to assist service users to bed, provide medication and ensure service users are safe and comfortable for the night. During this time there is a good camoraderie amongst workers. The hardest part of this job is the tiredness and, sometimes, unsociable hours and trying to keep on time for service users medication and individual needs. Should an emergency (ie Ambulance called, District nurse required), you play catch up for the rest of the shift but.. the most rewarding thing is walking into somebody's house, being accepted and making a positive difference to their day. If you can make a lonely person smile the job is worth doing.
Community Support Worker (Current Employee) – wisbech – 9 February 2015
I loved my job, but unfortunately i do not feel that i can no longer do it, the service users are people are human, and not a number, the amount of responsibility we had for someone on less than £8 per hour, i worked along going into peoples homes, going to any situation the person could be dead, which has happened several times, or injured, calling ambulances, dealing with medication and end of life care, with no help. it takes its toll on you they can less than 10 notice if they needed you to do more work, and on every day off got phones calls. Carers need more money, the company as a whole was not too bad to work for, and the other carers where a good bunch of caring people.
