A new career in 2019: how care can be a rewarding profession

As the population in the UK ages, there is a growing need for healthcare professionals and carers are in high demand, so now is the perfect time to take advantage of it and become a successful care worker.

Rewarding

A career in patient care is highly rewarding as it allows you to combine your loving nature and problem-solving skill to create a personalised approach to caring for an individual.

Working in care also provides you the opportunity to build strong relationships with the people you are looking after. This is a job where you can see the difference you are making in your patient’s life and the lives of their loved ones. Many carers form strong connections with their patients, and it’s easy to see why: you’re helping the people who need it most, you’re the light in the darkness for those struggling in life.

This is not to say that it’s an easy job. The challenges you face vary from day to day and patient to patient, but your abilities to problem solve and your caring nature will provide a sense of fulfilment that few other jobs can match.

Also, despite you may not remember every one of your clients and their family members, you can be certain that they will always remember and appreciate the great work you do.

Training

Every care worker works hard to support the clients through difficult times, and behind every successful carer, there is Better Healthcare. Working in partnership with local authorities, CQC, NHS and CHC, we provide a comprehensive range of training courses to all of our carers. In addition to that, we make use of a database to identify the areas you need to develop and we do our best to provide the necessary training for you.

Local jobs

As demands from local communities are high, carers rarely have trouble finding jobs that are near to where you live, therefore saving you time and sparing you from expensive train costs.

It’s easy to start

Contrary to popular belief, you do not need any form of official qualification to apply for a job in healthcare. This is a career that places emphasis on people, not papers, and you will be expected to show that. Having previous care work experience is helpful, plus you will need basic English and maths skills. If you decide to work with us at Better Healthcare, you will go through an induction programme and attend regular training sessions to ensure that you can provide your patients with the best care possible.

Care work is also an excellent starting point for those looking to further their career in nursing or medical sectors, offering a way to obtain qualifications such as a Diploma in Health and Social Care.
