Cheryl – What do you love about working
 in the care sector?

I just love coming into work and trying to make a difference in other people’s lives. The people are here because they can’t look after themselves anymore. The fact that we are coming in to look after them, or just help them with their day to day lives, is just rewarding. I think it’s easy to take things for granted like getting up in the morning and being able to go to the bathroom and have a shower, or make your own breakfast. It’s these simple things that make you independent and we don’t realise one day that could be taken away from us. Coming into work and helping the residents with those things makes me feel like I’m doing something worthwhile.

Kym – What would you say to someone who has hesitations about coming into care?

You get a lot of support from the staff. I help anyone who is interested in care for the right reasons, even if they are hesitant. My own daughter works in community care and never in a million years did I think she would do care. It’s absolutely brilliant. You have to just give it a go and you build confidence as you go. It can be upsetting at times but every day is highly rewarding. We have an open-door policy so you always get the support from leadership you need.
