World Mental Health Day

Paul Wormwell

10th October 2019

Life of a carer/support worker can be demanding but extremely rewarding. We start work at different times of the day, work in all weather conditions to suit the needs of our clients. We put our all into what we do, providing support, reassurance and enabling individuals to live as independently as possible.

It is not always easy, it can be hard work and exhausting at times but the tasks you assist with (involving assisting with stepping out into the community, washing/bathing, domestic duties, or helping to make sense of some letters that arrive) make a huge impact on somebody else’s life. Sometime’s as a carer/support worker, it is easy to put others first, but difficult to remember to take care of yourself.

Everybody has mental health, but not everybody finds a coping mechanism to manage it. If you feel content walking to the shops, but suddenly feel anxious about something you’ve forgotten or an appointment you have… you have experienced a decline in your mental health. You should always talk to somebody about that, get it off your chest and allow them to understand and offer their support because a problem shared is a problem halved.

So my peers, colleagues and clients, I will continue to deliver the best quality of care and support and when I am finished, I will go home, put my feet up with a cup of tea and focus on myself…allowing myself to recharge the batteries and take care of my mental health.
