What is it like working as a Home Care Worker?
Home Care Worker in London:
"Rewarding and challenging"
Pros: Feeling of satisfaction that I made someone safe, happy and comfortable. To see them smile is priceless. Keeping them company and helping them with social activities. Feels natural and not like work at all.
Cons: The tight time slots we're given for each client and the panic driving in rush hour trying to get from client to client. Not paid for travel expense meaning somedays spending more on petrol than I have earned.
