This is going to be quick and sweet. As everybody who has anything to do with me knows, I am a support worker. And I love it.
I am surprised with how rude people can be though. For example, I went shopping with the clients for the weekly shop and the amount of women and men who would just stand in the way and not bothered to help me out or move out of the way. But ignoring the rude public the job is amazing.
Yes you know EVERYTHING about the people you care for but you are helping somebody live their life. Helping them do something that they wouldn’t original be able to do in their lives is rewarding. The people who you look after as a support worker are so inspirational. You see life a lot differently then you did. I am so happy that I managed to get the job.
For anybody who is thinking of getting a job as a support worker, my advice is to do it. The hours are long. Sometimes the work is not the best and it is really mentally and physically tiring but it is worth it.
I hope you have had a good day.
