Could COVID-19 be the push you need for a more rewarding career?

COVID-19 will change all our lives forever.

What we can't deny is how it has shown the caring side in all of us.

There is a perception that working in care is a tough job. It is, but whilst there are pressures just like any job there are vast amounts of benefits you can attain from caring for others.

Having a rewarding career and helping people is the common reason most people are attracted to the Care industry

Caring for vulnerable people provides a real sense of fulfilment and accomplishment that comes from helping other people when they need it. The act of helping people to live their lives with a sense of dignity, helping to make a positive difference to someone else’s day brings with itself a real sense of personal reward.

By caring for someone, you also help to empower them. That can be helping them choose what to wear, what to eat, whether to stay in or indeed go out. Guiding people through these daily tasks is helping empower the individuals to continue to define how they want to live their lives.

Within care you will enjoy daily contact with people. In an age of increasing technology that can impact on human interaction, a role in care sees you focusing on building relationships with people that can form into real long-lasting and rewarding interactions.

There is something special in providing support to people for day-to-day living and also seeing the real results of your work on a daily basis.

Giving back is also listed as one of the most fulfilling aspects of being a Carer. The sense of personal fulfilment you get when 'Giving back' is a priceless perk of being a Care worker. Your efforts benefit the individual you are caring for, but also extend to helping their families. You will be giving them the peace of mind they need to focus on their own lives - secure in the knowledge their loved ones are safe and well supported.

Here at Pure Homecare we are focused on client-centred care. We want to employ people who have the same core values as ourselves and believe that care should be transparent, trusted and client-controlled.

If that sounds like you, we have a variety of roles that might interest you – caregivers, support workers and live-in carers to name but a few. If you are interested in joining us and helping us deliver care, then please get in touch.
