We recently asked one of our fantastic Home Care Assistants, Janet (pictured with a Client), to provide us with some feedback on her experience of working at The Care Collection. This is what she said:
“I have worked as a Carer for 28 years and have been employed by a number of different care companies. I can honestly say that joining The Care Collection has been the best career move I have ever made!
Catherine, Chelsey and the Field Care Supervisors have made me feel part of the team since day one. Any queries or concerns I have are addressed immediately by the office and I am supported through regular supervisions / appraisals and ongoing training. There are also staff meetings where I can meet other Carers and discuss new ideas with them and the office.
The office spend time matching me with Clients so that we are compatible. This means I feel comfortable and confident with who I care for. All visits are at least an hour long so I get to spend quality time with my Clients and there is no rushing or pressure involved.
I work between 22-30 hours per week and currently have 4 Clients, all located in my local area. The Clients I care for have a variety of different needs, including Dementia, end of life and difficulties with mobility.”
