205 A, B and C
In my job as a Support worker I find my day to day work really fulfilling, it is enjoyable as I know I am making a difference in peoples lives.
I support people in their homes to go about their lives and I have a duty of care to these people. This means I am responsible for their needs. It covers people who are physically disabled and cannot look after themselves. These people may require assistance with personal care, safety, meals and other medical or physical needs. It is my responsibility to ensure that they are met. I also ensure that the way I do my job is fair and that I recognise equality, diversity, choice and independence at all times.
I regularly have supervisions with my team leader and this identifies any areas that are good but equally ones that need improvement. Also I reflect on my work activities and this allows me to improve my work practice by being critical of how I have previously performed. I have a personal development plan which outlines my goals and achievements and this is agreed with my team leader and locality manager. I am currently underway with a NVQ level 2 and have completed a career pathway with my assessor.
As a Support worker it is my duty to follow organisational and legal requirements and it is my responsibility to make sure I am up to date with all of these and to ensure my training is always up to date and not to undertake tasks I have not been trained for. I complete records on a daily basis explaining what I have done and if any changes have occurred then I record them and report it to my manager immediately. I am trained very well and this training covers Health and Safety, Moving and Handling, First Aid, Communication, S.O.V.A., Food Hygiene and many others. It covers the main aspects of my role and gives me knowledge in these areas. We are also governed by the Care Quality Commission and follow the Care Standards and Social Care Worker Code of Practice.
