Why work at Lodge?
This video shows feedback from our home care team and support workers on their experience of working with us.
A day in the life of a Home Carer
“I will start my day by checking with the office to make sure no calls have changed.
Then I will head to my first call, I usually have the same people each day, and I love being able to build up a great relationship with them. I go in and make sure my service user is out of bed, if they aren’t I will help them up and make them a cup of tea, I check their medication pack and make sure I offer them any medication they may need for the morning.
I will run through a similar routine with each person, making sure they are comfortable for the day ahead. I will leave anything I want the next carer to know in the notes book, if there are any issues at all I always inform the office. Once my morning round is finished I have the rest of the day to myself, knowing I had made a real difference to those service users.”
