What a job as a carer involves

If you decide to become a carer, you can expect a flexible and rewarding career ahead of you. This is your chance to use your interpersonal skills alongside a natural instinct for taking care of others who may be sick or vulnerable.

Home care is right for you if you are able to fulfil other people's needs including:

  • personal care, such as washing or dressing
  • housekeeping or domestic work, such as vacuuming
  • cooking or preparing meals
  • nursing and health care
  • companionship.
