Care workers can spend significant amounts of time with those they look after, and need to be able to connect with and comfort them when at their most vulnerable.
It’s therefore important to choose a carer that has not only the right skills but also the character traits required to provide your loved one with the highest quality of care.
SuperCarers, an introductory service that matches families and individuals needing care with experienced and compassionate carers, share some of the qualities you should look out for in a great care worker.
If you are vulnerable and dependent on a carer, you need to be able to trust them completely. To foster this trust, a care worker should be dependable and respectful, arriving punctually and working to the best of their ability.
