Vicky pursues her passion for care

Carer Vicky shares how following her passion for caring for others has made a positive impact.

Have you ever wondered what it must be like working as a carer? Yes, it can be hard work, and it’s certainly varied, but it is also very rewarding.

Carer Vicky’s from our Bluebird Care Herefordshire team shares a few words about her about her experience in care:

“The thing I most enjoy about my job is that I can pursue my passion in caring for others. I also like meeting new people. It’s also very rewarding to see the smile on a customer’s face when you know you have done everything to keep them comfortable, safe and well.

I’m very hands on, to the extent that if a client is taking a shower I always seem to get soaked too. I think I need a wetsuit!

My biggest achievement so far is winning Domiciliary Carer of the Year in 2019 at the Hereford Times Health and Social Care Awards. It was a big shock, but it was also a great boost to my confidence and helped me in believing in myself.”

We are currently recruiting for more caring, compassionate and reliable people to join our team. Full training is provided and you will need to have your own transport as many of our customers live in rural areas. Give us a call to discover more about a career in care.
