As a domiciliary care worker you need to have a genuine interest in helping people to maintain their quality of life and independence regardless of the potential barriers they face. You must be patient, kind and sympathetic to the difficulties that an individual faces. You are there to facilitate their independence much as possible and encouraging their wellbeing at the same time. It’s also essential you recognise your limitations in your role. As a domiciliary care worker you will never have to administer medications (unless you have been specifically trained to do so) or provide nursing care to a person, so you should understand that these situations require communication from you to your manager in order that the individual’s need can be addressed by an appropriately trained person.
GCSE or equivalent in Maths and English desirable but not essential.
The qualifications and experience gained on this Apprenticeship will allow you to apply for further roles within this sector.
