Nursing care homes and residential care homes are very similar. The main difference between a care home and a nursing home is that nursing homes have qualified nurses and specially-trained care assistants on-hand to provide 24/7 support to residents. Both nursing and residential homes offer regular activities and support for residents with washing, eating, and taking medicine.
Working in a residential care home means you will be supporting residents with all aspects of their day. From help with personal care to supporting them at mealtimes, each day will be varied. You will also support their wellbeing through care home activities and getting to know each resident. Working with residents is a very rewarding role, as you'll be making a huge difference to people's lives every day.
