As with all social and health care settings, it is of a very complex and challenging nature, where a typical day offering something different.
I have learnt and developed my social care skills, particularly in regards to risk assessments, care planning and intervention and the importance of being confidentiality and professionalism.
In- house training is provided to all employees which aid in job development. I also managed to study two degrees whilst working night duty and day duty for one year, which was a challenge in itself.
I believe that the hardest part of the job is that there is never enough hours in the day, despite how well you plan or prioritise your work. You have to be ready for anything!
The most enjoyable part of the job is when a service user says a thank you or you notice an improvement in their health and well-being.
