It is one of the most overused phrases used when it comes to talking about care work, but it really is ‘the most rewarding job’. Here are some of the many reasons why we love our jobs at Lotus Home Care and why you should consider a career in care.
As a carer or support worker, you get to spend hours of one-on-one time with your clients. You get to find out what makes them tick and hear all the amazing stories of their lives. If you are the sort of person who thrives on social interaction, then care work is one of the best jobs you can do. You could well be the only person that your service user sees in a day, so you will be a source of entertainment for them and they will be delighted every time you call in.
As part of a team of social workers, you will soon build up a rapport with your colleagues, as few other people will understand the trials and tribulations that come along with care work. They will appreciate the hard work you do and the challenges you face. When working in care, you will make friends that you will keep for life.
Care services are provided every hour of every day to some service users, so support workers need to be on hand at all times to help. This means that carers can often work shift patterns to ensure there is always a full rota of staff available. If you are working around childcare or other family commitments, there is sure to be a shift to suit.
To be a great carer, you really just need a calm, sensitive manner and a commitment to improving the lives of others. Care work is a good choice for those who have few formal qualifications, as training is provided on the job, with further qualifications available as you progress, so that you can improve your salary over time.
If you are looking for a role that is varied and interesting, while allowing you to really make a difference in the lives of others, there are few that rival care work. At Lotus Home Care, we choose our staff based on their passion for improving the lives of others. If that seems like something you’d like to do, contact us and ask about our employment opportunities.Back to News
