Caremark Oldham Blog: What characteristics make a great Care Worker?

Date published: 04 February 2019

At Caremark, it’s absolutely essential that a care worker shows genuine care and concern for others.

Communication is absolutely key when forming how best to support someone, and that the team keeps everyone in the loop. As a professional care worker, they must also treat their working environment without prejudice or preconception. 

The ideal characteristics of a Carer

  • The ability to provide positive helpful support
  • A calm and collected personality
  • A Great listener
  • Organised and attentive
  • Adaptable to situations

Sometimes elderly people, or people experiencing progressive mental difficulties like dementia, can be slower or unable to understand certain things, so having the ability to remain patient is absolutely vital. Once a level of understanding and respect has been established between a care worker and a client, a happy and friendly relationship is formed. 

A Career in Care

The impact of working in Care is a truly rewarding experience and Caremark provide on-going training that encourages growth and positivity for those involved. There is a distinct level of satisfaction that carers achieve by forming relationships with clients and maintaining that standard. The achievement and active involvement in helping others is something that is so rewarding in itself and that’s why it remains one of the most popular career paths.
