Abbey Care home (Former Employee), Romford, ENGMay 14, 2015
Cons: 7 hours a wek
In Abbey Care home I was able to manage the time when it came to serving the elderly people their lunch and dinner. I was pleased to say that I enjoyed every moment of it. Some vulnerable had some difficulties using toilet facilities and going to bed and rest, but I was able to use my knowledge and communicate with them using my eye contact and body language for them to understand me correctly. However the qualities that I gained are my interpersonal interaction, effective communication, good listening skills and a positive attitude.

Carer
Carer (Former Employee), BowburnApril 30, 2015
Pros: Meeting different people.
Cons: Temporary.
My day at work starts with dressing and feeding the patients, then taking them to the hospital as and when required. I learnt there was a lot of responsibility with the patience in which I enjoyed doing. I also had to do lots of other duties like cleaning service rooms and keeping the home tidy though out laundry duties and also help out in the kitchen assisting the chef when needed to cover for staff absence to meet the employers needs. The hardest part of the job was to put the patient in a hoist to bath them, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

Care assistant (Former Employee), Gravesend, ENGNovember 28, 2014
Pros: free food provided
Cons: impatient residents
I am a hard working individual. A typical day at work would be making breakfast, washing dishes and keeping the environment clean ensuring there are no hazards putting residents at risk.

I have learned that every resident has their own specific needs therefore, they are treated as an individual.

I have managed breakfast and dinner making sure every resident is satisfied with the food.

I am an excellent team player when working with colleagues on many occasions if a colleague will come in late I would take over their shift.

The hardest part of the job was ensuring the environment was clean and safe to be in for the residents which involved washing blankets mopping floors and cleaning up urine.

I enjoyed interacting with residents taking part in activities such as bingo.

Fun & interesting workplace
Activity Co-Ordinator/Relief Administrator (Current Employee), BoltonAugust 20, 2014
Pros: free lunches, flexible hours
Cons: low pay
Typical day at work involves spending time with disabled residents, either inside or out of the home, helping them to engage in hobbies and pastimes. I have learned a great deal about the importance of treating residents as individuals, respecting each person's preferences, likes & dislikes. Management have been flexible, giving me a free rein to organise activities that are appropriate to our Residents' needs. Co-workers are friendly and dedicated to the care of our Residents. I find the hardest part of the job is fighting the apathy that can set in among residents, whose quality of life will be diminished if they do not access social and leisure activities. The most enjoyable part of the job is the cheerful reaction of a Resident to an activity that he/she has enjoyed, ie a trip to an open farm or the zoo, or even just a DVD session or scrabble game.

Staying with old people.
Care Assistant (Former Employee), Perugia, UMBApril 6, 2014
It was very nice to listen and try to understand older people, but they are also very sympathetic and understanding. They really enjoyed my company and I cooked for them when they were in seventh heaven. I worked for one person, more often than not they were members of the family who called me, especially the sons and daughters who now have their own family and they need somebody had to take care of their mother or father.
