I Joined Hub Care Support 4 years ago after hearing about them through my Dad who heard about Hub Care through an Alzheimers Carers support group.
I had been a carer since I was 18 working in Day centres for the Elderly then on to supporting individuals with Epilepsy and supported living then onto Cares Homes and then to an Agency, after gaining plenty of experience I decided that I wanted to try Hub Care Support out and be a self employed Personal Assistant and it was the best decision I ever made!!
I suddenly felt so independent and in control of what individuals I wanted to support, the days I worked and the hours I worked and most importantly I could give the clients that I matched with the time needed to support them and to give them the personal "one to one" service; not only that they needed but what I always longed to do but couldn’t due to the back to back calls I had to do within my shifts at the agencies and care homes which is expected of the carers.
Never in my working life have I looked forward to going to work so much, to visit my lovely clients and I am now earning a vast amount more because of the hourly rate being much higher than agencies and care homes. This means I can now spend time with my young children without having to do unsociable and longer shifts to earn the same money. I chose the hours to fit around my life and Family and thoroughly enjoy being a Personal Assistant with Hub Care Support.
