Not only is it a new year, but also the start of a new decade. Many people will have made a new year’s resolution to make a change in their career and start a new chapter. If you are one of those people, have you considered a career in care?
1.48 million people are currently working within the social care industry and are helping other people who need extra support. Home care services allow individuals to remain living in the comfort of their own home without having to move into residential or nursing care. The support of home carers allows those individuals to be independent for longer, surrounded by their treasured memories with a care plan tailored to their needs.
The day-to-day extra support of a Home Care Assistant can become a vital part of many individual’s daily lives. As we get older, mobility can become an issue and we may not be able to complete tasks as we once used to. Getting out and about into the community can become a daunting task, with many choosing not to leave their home, increasing their risk of loneliness and social isolation. For those who live with a lifelong health condition or disability, having an extra set of hands available helps to complete tasks independently. The support of a Care Assistant can be a reassurance for family members, also, especially when a loved one is living the effects of dementia; knowing someone will be visiting a loved one puts their mind at ease, allowing them to continue with their daily life and spend quality time with the individual.
Becoming a Home Carer is a rewarding role. Each day, you will be helping someone to continue living in the comfort of their own home and boost their independence.
