What will I be doing day-to-day?
When it comes to support work, variety is definitely the spice of life!
Each client will have different needs, but one of your main responsibilities is to socialise with them and be a companion and friend. This includes chatting and interacting with them and providing emotional support. These interactions can have a positive impact on a client's mental health and overall well-being.
You will also have to take care of daily chores like general cleaning, housekeeping, and cooking. Many clients will also need help with personal care tasks such as showering, shaving and getting dressed. Transport could also be an important part of your job, driving clients to medical appointments, events in the community, or grocery shopping.
