Job Description for Care Worker

A career as a care worker offers countless opportunities to work with children, disabled adults, and elderly people. Care workers care for people in a variety of settings, including residential homes, clinics, hospitals, and nursing homes. They often work on a team with other health care professionals, such as registered nurses and social workers, to care for patients and support their individual needs. Some patients may require around-the-clock care, so care workers may work first-, second-, or third-shift hours. In less formal environments such as home health care, they may only work a few hours a day with their patients. The flexibility of the position is an advantage, as it allows for personal growth and change if the care worker desires.
