‘People ask why I work as a Care Assistant for Q-Care – let me share with you why:

My role is positive – I work in a job that is about positivity, it is about change and support. I am surrounded by kind people and work with lots of lovely people in my community.

My role is important – My job is to put a smile on someone’s face by providing little bits of support in the areas they need it.

My role is essential – Without the support of a Care Assistant, many people would be lonely and neglected. I make sure that doesn’t happen.

My role is tough – I’ll be very honest, there can be some really tough days! Imagine having to ask for extra support because you have lost your independence?! So sometimes it is understandable when my customers are upset – but luckily I am there to remind them of all the great things in their life.

My role makes me happy – Not everyone gets to go to work every day knowing they have made a huge difference. Even on the tough days I know that my patience and kindness has helped someone have a better day.

My role is different – No two days are the same as a Care Assistant and that’s why I love what I do.

At Q-Care our Care Assistants are valued team members and valued members of the community.

Through the love and support for the people who make up your community they put a smile on the face of the people who need some extra help and they get to go home every day with a smile on their face – knowing that they work in a job like no other.
