Can you tell us about your responsibilities as a Care Worker?
As a Home Care Worker at Abbots Care I am responsible for providing support to vulnerable people and ensuring they feel as happy as possible in their own homes/ community.
What is a day in the life of a Care Worker like?
As a Home Care Worker, your days can be quite busy and varied but it’s always very rewarding. I love that I have created strong relationships with my Service Users who are always extremely grateful. I always finish my work day feeling valuable knowing I have made a positive change in someone’s life.
How did you get into the care industry?
I found myself unemployed in a completely different industry and took a chance at looking for something different to do. I have been with Abbots Care for 3 years now and since becoming a Care Worker I have never looked back!
What skills would you say are key to being successful in this role?
I believe that being genuine, having empathy, patience and attention to detail are the most important skills to be successful in the care industry.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I love spending time with family and playing the piano. I am particularly looking forward to playing piano and sharing some music at our next Service User tea party which I hope they will enjoy!
