Carers are undervalued What a surprise

A carer

To be a Carer in a Nursing Home is not an unskilled job Although that’s the way it looks when they get the minimum wage of £9 per hour

The job entails relating to older people.cIt involves communication skills perception and judgment.

The right words may help someone through the day or night and let them telax

The wrong ones can be very harmful

I suppose it may force some to seek further education or training courses but why do we put our relatives into places where the immense burden of care is carried by people who do not seem to be highly valued and respected nor reasonably well paid.

In some places they get no sick pay Do they get holiday pay?

Think about it
