In the past, care has had a pretty bad reputation. Some people think that it’s all doom, gloom and cleaning up after people. But, the reality is very different. You can be the reason an older person sees a friendly face, or be the reason they enjoy a cup of tea, or be the reason they get to visit their favourite café once a week.
Starting a career in care puts you in the driving seat of a role with unrivalled flexibility, fitting around your lifestyle with hours to suit you. It gives you a purpose, a reason and an overpowering sense of job satisfaction.
At Radfield Home Care we are on a mission to help the nation age well and remain connected to the things that matter most to them. This is where you come in. With your unwavering support, you can be the reason an older person gets to step outside their front door, breathe in some fresh air and get back to a normal life in their community.
Helping others isn’t a bed of roses and it’s important that anyone starting a career in private home care understands that it’s a challenging environment. Care Professionals need endless patience, kindness and determination.
”Finding fulfilling work can have a positive impact on your physical and mental health, your relationships, your self-esteem, and even, over time, your bank balance,”
“You’ll have the freedom to pursue what’s important to you. Rather than being limited to what you think you ‘can’ do based on your current skill set, look at what you’re naturally drawn to.”
I could sit here all day talking about the benefits of working care, but let’s be honest, it doesn’t quite have the same impact as reading rea-life quotes from real-life Care Professionals does it?
“Year on year, I can’t believe how I’ve seen client’s lives improve. Time is vital, and I give my client’s the time they need. I feel very proud working for Radfield.” – Wayne Plumridge
