The dynamics of how people are cared for has changed over the last century. From being centralised in large homes and facilities that provided care for child and adults with different needs, to becoming decentralised with more options based on the way individuals want their needs to be met.
This change has brought about options such as residential living, independent living, assisted living and more.
The range of different living options has created opportunities for people in the health and social care industry to work in roles such as residential support or care workers.
A residential support and care worker will assist children and vulnerable adults with tasks that range from supporting with personal care, promoting self-help and independence in-line with care plans, assisting the administration of medication, helping with domestic duties and supporting clients to access the community, as well as support with so many other day to day activities.
In order to do these tasks, individuals need to have excellent communication, time management, and organisational skills. Residential and care workers must have the ability to work as part of a team as well as on their own and also have the ability to work under pressure.
