The home care franchise was recently delighted to introduce Georgina via its blog, who joined Acacia in 2020 after a previous career in recruitment.
Georgina is entering her third year with Acacia Homecare as a Care Support Worker. As she put it in this recent blog post from the care franchise, “I joined in 2020 and I had never previously done home care work before, instead I worked on phones and recruitment. I also worked on a farm, running a corner shop and front of house in an office building, providing breakfast and lunch and making coffee. I helped out in the hospitality department of the building.”
Georgina continued, “At the moment, I work full time as a home care worker, but what is great is the flexibility of the hours. So, although I am full time, I am also able to do a bit of modelling on the side.” Beyond the flexibility, Georgina revealed that she got into home care primarily because she “thought it would be a challenge” and she likes to “learn new skills”. She also considers herself to be “quite compassionate and caring”, and felt Acacia Homecare would be the ideal place to put these traits to use.
Georgina then described her initial experiences working for Acacia and interacting with the existing team. She said, “Straight away I knew when meeting the Acacia Homecare team that it was more than just a job, we are a family, everyone’s so nice and anything you need, the team is there for you, no matter what it is you’re dealing with, there’s always someone to talk to.”
Finally, Georgina took a moment to reflect and look to the future, expressing that, “The favourite part of my job is building relationships with the clients, having fun with them and a sing song every now and again. In the future I think I would like to develop my role but not sure as to what yet. At the moment I am enjoying being an Acacia Angel and working in home care.” If you feel you’d also enjoy working in home care as an Acacia franchisee, find out more about the franchise via its profile page, which is linked above.
