I have been working for Pacific Care since March of 2015 as a care assistant and continue to do so today, Pacific Care has boosted my confidence and gave me great Demetria and moving and handling training just to name a few. They also put me through my svq2 which something is I didn’t think I would achieve, so now I wish to go on to further education either through the company or at college.
I love my job in general, it’s such a rewarding job in itself. I also like working as part of a team and also the training I have received.
I wanted to become a care assistant when my papa got diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. I looked after him briefly when my gran went on small outings. I’ve always loved helping people and being part of a team.
The skills required for this type of job are good team working skills, good at working under pressure, being confidential, be reliable, be kind, helpful and a great listener.
