The new face of caring
So you’ve organised to have in home support – you’re told it will make a difference and help you to stay living at home independently. Your next concern is: ‘Who will come? What will they be like? Who are they?’ Most of the advertising you’ve seen has pictures of attractive women with sweet older ladies, having a cup of tea together or walking in a pretty garden.
At Just Better Care Hills District, we have a team of people with varied interests and backgrounds. One of our team, Robert, has an interesting story. He initially worked for a bank, then was moved into their computer department; when the bank outsourced this, he trained as a computer programmer and began working in software development. At the age of 50, Robert was retrenched.
