I’m 18, and as my first job have become a care assistant in an old peoples home, but I’m not sure I can do it.
I’m very, very frightened of coming off my induction period in 2 days time and having to do the care work alone, and feel constantly nervous about the work, which involves washing and dressing residents, emptying commodes, serving food. I’ve only done one shift so far, and the work is hard, but I feel like I should stick at it because I’ve tried finding other jobs and I can’t. At the end of my shift today I was very upset, but I don’t know why. Could this just be nerves because I’m new to it all?
