i worked for this company

I worked for this company for 4 years. I left as they were placing me with clients that were sexually inappropriate. The office people are hard to deal with. I worked here during the time i studied at university.

Productive

Caregiving is a demanding and stressful occupation but you learn to care for vulnerable people who have no one. Compassion and empathy is necessary for this type of work.

Pros

Friendships

Cons

Clients change all the time

To many levels of management, the communication was poor and training was poor.

Although I did enjoy the job, the level of professionalism especially from lower management was poor. The lack of professional boundaries implemented by coordinators confused the worked in the field. The lack of organisation and planning made it very difficult to establish was was needed workers on a day-to-day basis.

very varied work,good learning opportunities,dedicated team,supportive,

my typical day starts at 7am my first client,where I travel to my client in Judea.I shower,dress,apply particular creams for excema,muscle pain. I have learnt to have a good sense of humour where sometimes clients can be considerably down.I have learnt to set small challenges which give them hope and satisfaction. Everybody is different so have leant adaptability Discretion My co workers I have built up a good repore with and often work as a team,with constant communication. Self managing which appeals,although always respect superiors and advice.Sometimes have had too think on my feet. enjoyable parts of being a carer is the smiles and the sharing of peoples lives when sometimes this is not obtained through the families.

Pros

self management thinking on your feet

Cons

none

Company always attempts to match clients with appropriate care givers.

The day is spent going from client to client, assisting in whatever ways necessary to enable the client to remain in their own home. Interesting sessions are often held to enhance care giver's skills in various situations. Management are friendly and helpful at all times. An opportunity to meet co-workers is well received by all.

Pros

Meeting a wide range of people in the community and hearing their life experiences

Cons

Unrealistic petrol allowances given the amount of travelling required.
