Want to make a real difference in people’s lives? Then join our team because at New Dawn – we take care of our staff as much as our clients. And Social Care is a secure job. An aging population means our services are always needed – in fact we’re expanding our team to meet demand.
What is care work? Care is about getting to know the client, their likes/dislikes, engaging in their past life and experiences and from this knowledge developing a rapport that enables recognition of small changes, so you can adapt support. It’s also about maintaining dignity and respect. Care is more than a job, it’s a vocation.
Is it hard work? Yes – but knowing you’ve made a real difference in someone’s life makes it all worth-while. There’s nothing like the feeling of a thank you from the client/their family.
Does it involve weekends? Yes – most clients need some support every day. Some are early risers; hence the 7am start – to help them get up, showered, give medication, breakfast etc; i.e. fairly minor support. Calls during the day may be for just a chat, to make a cuppa or do some domestic tasks. Not all of our clients are early to bed – hence we work until 10pm. And yes, some of our clients have a much greater need for support.
Is previous experience essential? No, it isn’t…what’s essential is:
We work in teams covering the hours of 7am – 2pm and 4pm – 10pm; 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. Our Carers work anything from two to six hours at a time, depending on their circumstances and the requirements of our clients.
