3 common myths about working in care

Published: 22/05/2019

As far as we are concerned it is time to tackle head-on three of the most common myths about working in homecare.

Working in care and support is tremendously rewarding and fulfilling, and it is carried out on a daily basis by thousands of compassionate, caring people all over the country. At Bluebird Care in Central Bedfordshire we see the difference our team of dedicated care professionals make to people's lives on a daily basis and yet we hear negativity on a regular basis.
 
As far as we are concerned it is time to tackle head-on three of the most common myths about working in homecare.
  1. The first myth is that care and support companies do not care about their team members. Nothing could be further from the truth at Bluebird Care. We support our people from the beginning to ensure they are able to deliver the very best quality of care to all our customers. This support continues with award-winning training to develop skills and knowledge.
  2. The second myth is that homecare companies don't care about their customers. Again, that's not true at Bluebird Care. We know that every visit counts - and we make sure that everyone we employ genuinely cares for others, that they have good communication skills and that they have the ability to understand what each of the roles entail.
  3. The third myth we need to bust is over rates of pay. It is commonly said that care and support employees are not valued and even that they are paid less than the minimum wage. That is not the case at Bluebird Care, where we offer excellent rates and the ability to work the number of hours that suit them and to build fulfilling, rewarding careers in a range of roles.
