care from qualified nursing staff,
who are on site 24 hours a day. Some
homes offer specialist support for
people with specific health problems,
such as physical disabilities, mental
health problems or dementia.
Some care home provide a mix
of different care. There may be a
certain number of places for residents
requiring personal care, for those
needing nursing care and for those
with dementia, for example.
Care homes may be run by private
businesses, non-profit organisations
such as charities and housing
associations, or local authorities
(which mostly run residential homes
rather than nursing homes). Many
local authorities outsource care to
non-profit organisations - only
about 10% of care home places are
provided directly by local authorities.

GETTING STARTED

A good way to find out if working
in care is for you is to volunteer in
your spare time. This will also give
you valuable experience. Contact a
local care provider and offer your
services. Personal experience of caring
for a relative can also demonstrate
your experience and commitment.
Your first position is likely to be a
as a healthcare assistant, where your
general responsibilities may include
providing emotional and practical
support for older people. This could
be in a care home, day centre or for a
care provider, visiting people's homes.
If you're making home visits,
duties will vary according to the
client. Building up a relationship
and getting to know their likes and
dislikes is crucial. You'll usually be
responsible for some personal care,
light housework, preparing or serving
meals, helping with general household
upkeep, and chatting and ensuring
they feel valued and listened to.
If you're working in a care home, your
duties may include helping guests with
personal care, feeding them their meals
and ensuring they're comfortable.
Hours can be flexible, and there
are a lot of part-time positions
available, which means you can work
when best suits you. You'll usually

NO BARRIERS TO ENTRY

A career in care doesn't discriminate
on age, qualifications or background.
Although it's useful to have experience
in a caring role, it isn't vital. Generally
speaking, companies are looking for
the right people with a caring nature
and a practical, hands-on approach.
Care work can also be a great
option if you're looking to change
