  • Mental health issues
  • Physical health issues
  • Emotional health issues
  • Learning difficulties

  • Interacting with adults who feel lonely and vulnerable

Before deciding that a role in the adult care sector is a career path you’d like to go down we highly recommend a taster day or some volunteering. These are excellent ways of trying the jobs out before committing yourself to them!
