Am thinking if getting a second job as a Domiciliary carer

Anyone who does this,can you give me an honest account of what the job is like?

What a typical shift may look like and what my duties would include?

Thank you

Well done you, the job could entail everything from getting someone up toiletted, washed, dressed, making breakfast and ensuring that they take any medication they need.

Washing up and making the bed. Every client has different needs but all need understanding and care, if they are grouchy and some are it’s probably because they are in pain.

It’s hard work but the most rewarding. Speak to a care provider who will tell you much the same as me.

They will also be able to tell you about pay etc.

Good luck
