Following the footsteps of a Care Assistant:
My shift started at 6am, making sure I had checked my rota the night before for any changes and getting my bag ready with gloves, aprons, daily records I made sure I started the day well. Had a chat with my lovely bus driver as he dropped me off on the road where my first call started I walked in with a smile on my face meeting my first service user at 6am. I read the support plan inside the service users home to refresh myself as I’ve been off for a few days and also check the daily records to ensure that there is nothing else I need to be made aware of. I put my apron and gloves on and support in washing and dressing my service user for the day ahead. She has chose a lovely dress for today as she is off out for lunch with her grandson! Once washed and dressed I change my gloves and help her make her way downstairs and make her breakfast exactly how she likes it, ensuring that she makes all the choices throughout. While she is eating her breakfast I make sure that I tidy up, making the bed exactly how she likes it, opening the curtains, washing last nights cocoa mug and ensuring that she is left with a jug of lemon squash (her favourite) and her remote control and pendant alarm within reach. I then support her in taking her medication ensuring that I fill in the medication record correctly and noting that the medication has been taken. Before I leave I make sure I have filled in the daily record sheets with what I have done with detailed information as her children like to know exactly what she has eaten and what has been done on my visit. As I wish her a lovely day I make sure I remember to put the bins out as the binmen will be coming today!
Off I go to my next call, its only a few streets away and there I am greeted by my colleague Manjit. We open the door using the key safe but make sure we will still knock and say hello before entering so the service user knows we are there. The service user has had a stroke and lost control of his left side, we put our gloves and aprons on and support the service user in hoisting him onto the commode, making sure he knows what we are doing all the way through. We get the bowls of water ready with flannels and soaps etcetra and support the service user to have a strip wash. We ensure that the service user is supported in maintaining his dignity at all times. Once washed the service user decides he wants to wear pyjamas all day so a fresh pair is put on. We change the service users bed linen and make sure it is all comfy and hoist him back to his bed. We get rid of all the dirty laundry and empty and clean the bowls leaving everything tidy. Changing our gloves we then greet the wife who has been busy preparing breakfast for her husband in the kitchen. She asks for a bit of help washing last night’s dishes. My colleague washes the dishes while I fill in the daily record sheets. The service user and wife thank us as we leave.
I have a quick dash to my next service users home and get there just after 9am. He is a young student who suffers with epilepsy and I support him to go to college a few times a week. Off we set with his mom and get to college. Today we will be working with his teachers on English and Maths. I don’t get involved in his teaching but support if he needs me for anything. I really enjoy it as I feel like I am at college again! We have lunch in the canteen and the second part of the day flies by. As his mom picks him up I wave goodbye. Exhausted but another great day.
