Care workers help vulnerable people to manage their daily activities and to live as independently as possible. Your day-to-day tasks will vary depending on the needs of the person you're caring for.
For people who need support to live at home and in their community, you'll:
- Help with washing and dressing
- Make food or help with eating
- Get to know their interests and needs
- Do household jobs, like washing clothes and shopping
- Monitor their weight and record any concerns they have
- Check they're taking their prescribed medications
- Support their physical and mental wellbeing through activities
You could work at an adult care home, at a client's home or stay overnight at people's homes. Your training will usually be a mix of one to one sessions at your workplace, group work and online resources.
