Why Working in Care is so Rewarding

07 Jun 2023

When most people think of care, they may think of a carer washing their clients, cooking them food and possibly helping to do their laundry. When we think of care, we think of giving people their independence back, helping people in their time of need and creating wonderful relationships. That is what makes care such a rewarding career – improving people’s lives as well as creating beautiful relationships with those that you care for. When choosing a job in care, you are helping to make a difference, whilst also leading a fulfilling career. Here at Hands on Care, we offer exactly that! We are a family-run business that has been providing care in Shropshire for over 10 years and we pride ourselves on offering an excellent standard of care and improving people’s lives.  

Building Relationships 

Every day we take things for granted, whether that be our friends, family or even our health. Some people find daily life more challenging because of age, having a life-changing injury or battling a disease which can be incredibly difficult and lonely experiences. Losing the capacity to look after yourself and your home is an experience that no one should have to go through. If it does happen, then we are here to offer a helping hand. By taking care of our clients and their homes, we take all that stress off their shoulders. This helps us to get to know our clients, their life stories and their sense of humour in order to build a trusting relationship. That is what makes working in care so fulfilling – we can make a huge change in people’s lives and allow them to be comfortable and content in their own homes. We are passionate about giving people their freedom back, by taking care of all the little things that we can often take for granted.  

Getting Out There 

Whilst stepping into unfamiliar territory can be nerve-wracking, it is also often one of the most rewarding things that we do! It is exactly the same for our clients – stepping into new territory can feel out of their control. While we offer personal care and cleaning services for their home, it is also important to have a bit of fun, build on the relationship and make a difference in that client’s day. Often clients feel trapped in their homes, but we can help them get out and enjoy the outdoors again, with activities such as walks or meeting up with friends. Even if it is just catching up over a brew in the garden, it is these interactions that are so fulfilling for both clients and carers. 

Perks of the Job 

While we pride ourselves in giving our clients some of their freedom back, working as a carer could get some of your freedom back too! If you are used to working a 9-5 job, then we offer something a little bit different. Here at Hands on Care, we can offer flexible working hours to suit your needs – if you need to be around for the school run, then that’s no problem! Whether you are looking for a full or part-time role, we can offer a position that caters for you. We also offer career development so that you can feel prepared for any challenge that comes your way. We also offer enhanced bank holiday rates and pension contributions so that you feel valued for the great work that you are doing.
