Anyone who has had a family member in need of care  will most certainly agree that is unfair that a Carer can get a job with no qualifications and no idea how to care for vulnerable people.
Nurses and doctors have to do access courses and go to university for several years and have placements during their courses in hospitals, care homes, community and once they are qualified they still have to train for different aspects of their job. They are dedicated and we trust them when ourselves or family members are ill. 

This also applies to social workers, teachers etc so Why is it that Carers in the same profession looking after vulnerable people, who need a lot of help, don’t need a single qualification to get a job. Anyone can sign up for a care agency or get a job in a nursing/care home or working in the community, providing they have passed a dbs check, it’s ridiculous and needs to change. Why is the government allowing this, there is a lot social services need to answer for and this must be high on their priority list. 

My brother has been in a nursing home for a number of years as he needs 24hr care and he has slowly deteriorated, last week he nearly died due to being found in a seizure in the morning. God knows how long he was in the fit but his lung collapsed and we had to put a dnar in place as he was critical. He has aspirational pneumonia and he is slowly recovering he is still having mini seizures which are caused by the infection. Basically aspirations are good going down the wrong hole into the lung instead of stomach and is dangerous especially in vulnerable patients/clients young and old and it can cause death. The carers shove food in patients mouths and don’t even have a conversation with them, to them it is just a job.

The job role is in the title CARER if you don’t care then don’t apply for this job role because the money is better than working in a supermarket. This job is not for everyone and if you are serious about being a Carer then I’m sure training for the role you are doing would be the best for the Carer and the people receiving the care.. 

Please help me get this petition to the government it is long over due...

Thankyou for your time
