I asked some of my care workers to tell me the best thing about being a care worker in Grimsby in Lincolnshire. Here are some of their answers:
“When someone says ‘thank you, you don’t know how much you’ve helped me’. It makes you remember that we are all humans and it just makes you feel good and that you are actually making a difference to someone’s life”.
“Those privileged times when you are present during the most significant and emotional and devastating and jubilant and tender moments in families lives. I have a number of these memories that will stay with me forever. These are moments when I KNOW that I really made a difference.
“Just being there to support our vulnerable customers, their families. ….everyone needs help and support sometimes”
“The ability to help people and effect real change. It’s the best feeling/job in the world”
“Meeting different families and the challenges we face each day as care workers in Grimsby I still love helping others.”
My reasons for being a director of a home care agency in Grimsby is:
“Witnessing and enabling families to achieve positive and sustainable change. Reflecting with the family on what changes they have achieved and knowing you may be helping to keep a family loved one in their own home rather than a care home. Also seeing the day in and day out dedication of my colleagues and care manager, going above and beyond to support elderly people, children and people with mental health issues and keep them safe”
