A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CARER


Here is what a ‘typical’ day could well look like for one of our trained care workers who visits numerous clients on a daily basis.

Our carers start at 7am, in the morning the first client of the day, may need help getting out of bed. They may have poor mobility or another condition that makes it difficult to look after them.  Bathing & dressing are other common morning activities for care workers to help service user with and providing these services helps clients to look and feel as good as possible when starting the day.


The care worker may then help to prepare breakfast (toast & cup of tea) for the client. Now they may move on to their next client’s home to do some other tasks. This is often a good time to chat with the client and they appreciate being able to talk to someone.  Some may have no family members or friends living nearby, and a simple chat can make all the difference to their day.


On the next visit, the care worker may take the opportunity to do some light housework for the client. Housework is often something that elderly people or people with disabilities are unable to, carers may help with making the bed, hoovering the room or washing the dishes.


The carer may then help another client with serving the food at   lunch time. The meal is usually supplied and delivered by a specialist food delivery company. Care may need to support the clients to heat up the meal using a microwave; family may have prepared meals and frozen them.


Some clients may need four visits a day, especially if they have severe mobility problems and some like to have something to eat at this time of day, if they have had a good lunch they may just have something like tea & biscuit or a sandwich. Many clients will need to take medication at regular intervals and may need prompting or assistance doing this


Late calls are normally the reverse of the breakfast calls, you may need to prepare supper and make a hot drink. Make sure that the clients are ready for bed, make sure that they have everything they need and make sure that they are safe and secure for the night. You may need to help to catheters or incontinence pads. Each client will have their own needs and preferences and your support will be tailored to fit them individually.


Caring is a great profession and if you really get into the job it is so rewarding.  Our carers look upon the people they provide care for as part of their extended family and I they enjoy what they do.
