This inspiring time-lapse video shows the challenged and rewards that care workers face n their day to day activities.

Care work is not easy, but it can be very rewarding knowing you’re making a difference to people’s lives.

Support workers can work in a residential care home, domiciliary care, or in a home enviroment. Their work is defined by a care plan, which is often developed by a social worker or care manager to meet the assessed needs of the person who needs care or support.

Support workers who work alongside professionals such as physiotherapists, podiatrists, speech and language therapists etc. Are known as Clinical Support Workers, sometimes as Therapy Assistants or Therapy Helpers. Their duties (depending upon the form of therapy) include:

  • Preparing patients for their therapy
  • Setting up equipment to use in the session/treatment
  • Assisting the therapist in the treatment itself
  • If you’re looking for flexible work as a healthcare professional, or to hire care staff contact Educare here.
