Could you care?

Currently, there is a high demand for trustworthy and dependable carers, facilitators, and personal assistants. The situation is dire, and many individuals are in need of assistance. If you are considering this line of work, it is commendable, and you will be welcomed with open arms. However, it is important to remember that this job is more than just a job.


As a carer, you are providing someone with a support and enabling them to live their best possible life. For individuals with disabilities, a significant amount of time is spent planning and arranging daily activities, such as scheduling medical appointments and coordinating social events around their care hours. By taking on this role, you are not only providing practical assistance but also emotional support and companionship.

It is a rewarding and fulfilling job, but it requires dedication, patience, and empathy. You must be willing to go above and beyond to ensure the well-being and happiness of the person you are caring for. If you possess these qualities, then this job may be the perfect fit for you.

The positive benefits of this job go both ways, as you may well (depending on your employers circumstances and interests) get to go on holidays with them, while working, that you might not otherwise have been able to experience. Or they may love going to the theatre or concerts, and take you along as their companion/PA. These are just two examples, but be open to new experiences and enjoy sharing them.

Some aspects of the job may be hard work, but a lot of it can be great fun too.
