It’s true what they say, we aren’t just employees, we are part of a family for this company. Everyone supports each other and the service users are the most important things. I’ve seen some amazing staff develop into fantastic Carers and that’s due to the support from the office team. Not all companies are like this one. Yes it isn’t always plain sailing, and the job is hard work - but isn’t every job. It’s the little things that matter, like being able to walk into the office and be greeted by a smile from the owner, managers and other staff. To feel appreciated in your role and to know you are supported and everyone has your best interests at heart is what matters. I’ve seen a few staff leave because they think the grass maybe be greener, then watched them crawl back begging for their job back. If your thinking of working in care definitely read the reviews of all the companies, as it is so important you know what your are getting yourself into. Luckily I made the right choice joining Professional Carers, and hopefully you will too !
Ps I’ve done loads of training, got my NVQ and thinking of applying for senior care worker. It’s nice to see I have the opportunities to develop.
Training, support from colleagues, free Samsung phone (which is ace), clients
Lots of walking, long shifts, would prefer weekly or for nightly pay.
