'I started working at SOS Homecare in April 2017. My job title is team leader and the support I have received has been outstanding. I am office based but I do go out and support clients when needed; I enjoy visiting clients and getting to know all about them and their life history.
SOS Homecare value there staff and offer full support to all staff, if any staff require any training then it is always available. Working at SOS Homecare has brought out the best in me and has allowed me to achieve targets and goals.'

'I enjoy my time with the SOS team because I like to meet all the service users and also I find the staff in the office helpful. I get on with all the staff & clients and I'm happy to be working as part of the SOS company.'
Christine Lawrenson, Carer
'I started work with SOS health care in February 2016. The work is very variable, sometimes challenging but very rewarding with no day ever the same. All the clients I go to are on an on-going regular basis, which has given me the opportunity of developing good professional relationships with them, as well as gaining an in-depth knowledge and understanding of their specific and sometimes changing requirements. Thus, enabling me to be able to deliver the best possible care and support to achieve a positive outcome at each visit.'
I also particularly enjoy the wide range of calls I cover from; social care for example taking someone shopping, out for lunch or a walk in the park. To domestic or personal care, assisting with various aspects of their daily living routines, whilst others have complex care requirements, requiring two members of staff for support to once again make sure they receive the best possible care.
SOS Homecare team are very professional and are a fantastic help and support to me. All the members of the office team began their career as a care assistant. Therefore, they are fully able to empathise with my position and offer me sound advice and solutions to difficult and challenging situations as they arise.
More importantly the office team make me feel that I am listened to and that I am a valued member of their workforce. I am also very lucky that I get to work alongside other care assistants who are extremely capable and committed to delivering high standards of care.
I can honestly say that I love my job. But the best thing for me about for working for SOS Homecare, is that I know each day that I have made a difference to someone’s quality of life.
