We deal with extremely challenging behaviour both physically and mentally , mostly at a low staffing level with no support from management . We face abuse every day but have absolutely no training in how to deal with this. We have had a vermin issue for many months . The residents are amazing and I love my role as a carer , however, I feel sorry they have to see the low moral .its heart breaking

he residents were well looked after and their happiness was of op priority. Long hours with little to no breaks as an issue at times but that's what happens in care/support work. Taught me about the fragility of life and how lucky some of us truly are

Typical day at work -hectic but rewarding. Learnt to deal with the more challenging residents demands. Management of resident and staff issues left a lot to be desired. Workplace culture was affected by less than effective management decisions. Hardest aspect of the job was dealing with those issues. The most enjoyable aspect was the joy of resident happiness .
Pros
Good hourly rate
Cons
none

I've worked as a support worker and one to one person for the last five years, interesting job, keep an open mind I also volunteer for activities, driving the vehicles and doing events. Seeing someone smile and helping people through their day is so rewarding.
Pros
Rewarding
Cons
Tiring hard work

Working closely with young adults with acquired brain injury was very rewarding. The work was challenging dealing with people in very difficult situations. Typical daily routine was helping people with their personal hygiene, diet and fluid intake. lending emotional and practical support in their daily lives whilst trying to help maintain their independence as much as possible. It was generally a very happy place to work and colleagues were enthusiastic and friendly. They supported each other well which became more apparent during the very difficult time leading up to the home closure. Colleagues went out of their way to support residents and staff during a very tense time. I worked here on a bank staff basis for over 15 years, taking shifts at weekends and during holidays from NHS as I felt that the role of providing direct personal care to people complemented my role as an O.T. I worked briefly on full time basis between November 2015 and June 2016 before home closure and redundancy. The hardest part of the job was experiencing peoples' conditions deteriorate. The best part was becoming a part of peoples' lives. Helping in a small way.
Pros
good working colleagues.
Cons
Relatively poor pay scale.

I found that there was no gratification from seniors in my role.. My colleagues and I worked round the clock, pulling double shifts and not so much as a thank you. I stayed because I loved the role that I had, I only left due to relocation. Salary doesn't match the work that you do!
Pros
The gratification of helping less abled
Cons
The hours
