Is caring a vocational career?
I’ve recently been privileged enough to see some of our carers in action with the clients and the families who use our services. I say a privilege because that was how it felt, it felt a real privilege as a manager to see with my own eyes the wonderful relationships that our carers have with our customers and the real difference that they make everyday.
The dictionary defines vocation as a fitness for a particular career, a dedication, and I think that sums up our carers. They have all the skills and knowledge needed to do their job but alongside that they have a dedication to meet the needs of our customers, they go above and beyond to make sure they really make a difference.
So yes, caring is a vocation, it’s more than just a job.
