A day in the life of…

A care home assistant

“It’s been over six years since I first began working at Borough Care as a Care Assistant.

My main responsibility is to help our residents with day-to-day living; making sure they are happy and stimulated. I start my working day by saying good morning to all the residents under my care and checking how their nights have been. I can then make any adjustments to their records or care plans, ensuring we always have the most up-to-date information about our residents’ wellbeing both physically and emotionally.

I really enjoy working at Borough Care. They have given me a career I can be really proud of.”

A night care assistant

“I’ve always been a night owl and being a Night Care Assistant suits me down to the ground.

I start my working evening by having a handover with the day staff to check how all the residents are doing and if there are any issues that I need to be aware of. Some residents find it difficult to settle and it is my job to offer comfort and support, so they feel secure enough to go to sleep.

I really enjoy working at Borough Care, I’ve never had a job that is so interesting and varied, and I love that. Working at night is also very useful as it allows me to balance my childcare responsibilities with having a job. Working a traditional 9-5 would be impossible for me.”

A housekeeper

“I’ve been a Borough Care housekeeper for over three years. I take real pride in keeping the home I work in as clean and tidy as my own home.

You must be extra vigilant as a Housekeeper in residential care to protect the vulnerable residents from accidents such as slipping on a wet floor or accidentally spilling cleaning products. Being a Housekeeper at Borough Care is not like being a Housekeeper anywhere else, I’m encouraged to get involved with the residents.

I am part of a personalisation project at my home, where staff and residents complete a one-page profile and are paired with people with similar interests.”
