Words from our Residents and Staff
Reasons I like working at
by Denice Pearce
Working with the elderly gives me a real opportunity to make a real difference in someones life, and the residents truly need the service we can provide, from helping them to bathe and dress or serve them meals. Helping them with personal care and helping the residents retain their independence.
It is important to me to make certain that the residents in my care home are receiving the needs effectively and communication is always satisfied.
I love working in a job where I am appreciated and caring for other people makes me feel valued.
I treat my clients as if they were my own parents, old age is going to come to us all so I care for people as I would like to be treated myself. I also love that every shift is different and the work can be so varied.
I get immense satisfaction from my work, and I always feel supported in my role by my managers and senior carers and they enjoy making a difference in the lives of others.
Each of the residents in my care home have different needs and my managers and senior carers always tailor the care plans to meet each residents individual needs.
I go home at the end of my shifts with great job satisfaction knowing that I also have the support from other team members I work with. I enjoy the challenges and the social interaction of coming to work at Edwina Mountbatten.
