Carers need to be paid better for their services. Enough is enough.

Care for me is a passionate job. It is something i love to do...but is it worth doing this job when the wages is so rubbish. I believe this is why this country struggles so much to find and keep care assistants. How many of us really want to get up out of bed in my case 5 am, to go to job that we can barely see the returns at the end of the month. For me its simple. I feel satisfied when i see my service users happy..when i see them cared for the way i would like to be cared for...but how do you give your absolute best if you are not being taken care of by the very people who created this job in the first place. A better wage to carers mean the people we care about...our own families...our children, friendsand aqiaintances will be better cared for. Efforts will be increased and carers will not only look forward to work but will be happy in the line of work knowing that hard work is justified by our wages. Too long carers are being frowned upon and turned a blind eye to. Which brings me to a simple but serious question.."If there were to be no care assistants, How would the people who need us really manage".
