“I have worked in Care for 11yrs, and I have seen and felt almost everything possible!
Throughout the years the respect for Care workers has just declined and we have been forgotten about, even now after the Pandemic!
We work 15 hr shifts plus overtime to accommodate the residents and although for most workers, the pay doesn’t matter… it’s getting to the point now, where it does! What we are paid, does not reflect the work we do. We deserve more now, as do the residents!
The funding is shocking, and nothing has changed, to be honest… they shouldn’t have to sell their homes to pay for their own social care, that’s what the pension pays for! Something must change about this and fast.”
