Why being a carer at Christmas is so rewarding

Why being a carer at Christmas is so rewarding

Every job comes with its own sense of reward but being a carer is up there with one of the most life-changing careers you can take. A role in care can bring rewards all year round but Christmas is an extra special time to be a carer. 

Christmas is a magical time of year for most of us, however for many elderly and vulnerable people that isn’t the case. Age UK reported in 2018 that 232,000 people aged 65+ will be on their own for at least 1 day on the Christmas period between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. When they were asked why, they said “I have no choice – it’s just the way it is”. 

It’s heart-breaking to know that so many elderly people will be alone at Christmas, which is why at Human Support Group we pledge to support everyone in our care to give them companionship and care at Christmas.  

Being a carer at any time of the year means bringing friendship, a listening ear and support – which is especially the case at Christmas. Our carers work specially to make people feel as independent as possible and to keep as much of their own life as possible. At Christmas, we help people engage in social activities to help give that sense of community and friendship during a time where they would otherwise feel isolated. 

Another great reason for working at Human Support Group during Christmastime is that with us having so many branches across the UK, it’s likely you will be able to work within your own community and local area to make a massive difference. 

Christmas at Human Support Group means changing your local community, giving the gift of companionship to those who need it and earning money to treat your own loved ones. 

We are looking for people with care in their hearts and a dedicated personality to join our teams in time for the Christmas period. We have branches across the UK with many vacancies available, particularly in the Manchester area. To view all of our vacancies, you can click here
