What our staff say…

I think that when I leave MCJA, it will only be when I need a carer myself…

“My name is Lavern. In 1990 I started work in a residential care home. My experiences stemmed from common sense, as I had no training and was not obliged to have any. I was sort of thrown in at the deep end. Then I left the care home and was employed in 1997 by Merseycare Julie Ann Ltd.

I was given training and experience in all fields necessary to work in the community. I really enjoy this work; meeting people in this way, assisting them to feel comfortable and valued in their own home. Each individual adult has different personal needs and you establish a relationship and an understanding just through being there with them.

Management at Merseycare Julie Ann make it easy for you to stay too; being there when you need them. If I have a problem, or disagreement, or need a better understanding of anything, I can pick up the phone and speak to management at any time.

I think that when I leave MCJA, it will only be when I need a carer myself.”

I hear others complaining about their job and I think “I’m so lucky to have my job – they should come and work in homecare”

 

“My name is Karen, I started in homecare over 20 years ago. The girl who lived below me was training to be a nurse and she worked as a carer in the evening. She really loved her job and introduced me to homecare.

I went for an interview and started working for a company based in Edge Lane, until the company closed down. I really wanted to continue working in homecare, so I started working for a company which also closed down and I was then transferred to Merseycare Julie Ann in 2006.

I love doing the job. I love the people. I love making a difference to their lives. I like listening to their lives, their history; where they have come from. I get to meet all kinds of people; lawyers, artists. My service users fascinate me – I really do enjoy their company. Most of them are so funny and entertaining that I spend my shift laughing. I go home every night laughing to myself at stories I have heard, or what people have said. I look after some of the most fabulous people.

I stay with MCJA because I always have backup; I really wouldn’t work anywhere else! If I have a worry about my service users, or if I need anything, or if I have a problem, the whole team – right from the bottom to the top of the office – I know I can go to any one of them. I receive support from my bosses at all times. It’s true, I love my job, I say it all the time.

I have been offered job opportunities in the office, but turned them down because I love being out with my clients. I love their company. I hear others complaining about their job and I think “I’m so lucky to have my job – they should come and work in homecare!”
