Challenging but rewarding
Hove City Council, Home Care Support Worker (Current Employee) – Brighton, ENG – 6 January 2016
My day at work currently can vary which I find both stimulating and challenging. I work with a number of service users with varying needs and all range in their independence.
I can deal with very difficult situations but have learnt from all of my experiences, from supporting someone in crisis to enabling and supporting someone with everyday life.
I get a lot of enjoyment and job satisfaction from helping someone with aspects of life we can take for granted, such as helping someone with their finances to creating and developing their person centered care plan which enables them to be in control of the support they receive.
I have learnt to work with a number of people and have developed my communications skills tailoring this to whoever I am working with.
