Straight from our carers mouth
David is one of our Experienced Social care workers who work’s within a team, supporting a client with complex needs. He has offered to share his thoughts with us throughout his career at Care Wyvern
“I considered care work because I feel that being present for another person, who is facing a demanding moment in her or his existence, is something very dignifying. By making a difference in someone else’s life, we increase our own value as individuals and as members of our society.
Although I originally began working for a different company, as support worker in assisted living, I wanted to try care in the community. After a few months, I applied for my current role at Care Wyvern. Social care work presented itself as a more dynamic and diversified experience than my previous employment.
I was concerned with my professional background, the bulk of which is unrelated to care. During the recruitment, I felt Care Wyvern looked at me as an individual whose unique mix of experiences (whether educational, professional, volunteering or personal…) translated into positive contributes to the role. I felt appreciated, grateful, and in turn, this stimulated my personal commitment. The training provided and the support of the whole team were and continue being instrumental in clarifying, refreshing, and helping to meet new demands of the role, when needed.
I believe a carer’s contribute to another person’s life is important. In addition, the memories that I am collecting are fond ones. Care work is an enriching experience that I strongly recommend having, without reservation”
