If you are reading this you’re probably looking for carers jobs in Worthing or considering a career in care and respite work. This career choice, although challenging, offers rewards that you may not have considered. Read on for the top 2 reasons why working in a care is so rewarding.

 

  1. Team Work

A well-run care home is only as good as the people staffing it and an essential element of that team is their ability to work well together as a unit. Although at times you will carry our work by yourself, the majority of your working time will be spent in close communication and contact with your fellow colleagues. You will learn skills that carry across many sectors as you learn to operate within such a close knit and communicative team.

 

  1. Make a Difference

When you work in a care home you will have the unique opportunity to make a real difference in someone’s life, on a daily basis. Not many jobs offer that every day. You’ll also be in a position to offer comfort and warmth to others. You too, can benefit from forming bonds with the residents you help to look after: imagine all the stories they will have to tell and the reminiscences they can pass on to you from across the decades. Care work can be emotional and it is not suited to all people. A good sense of humour, compassion and empathy are key traits that care staff should have in abundance.
