Meet our office team

Our office team are a friendly bunch, who love a chat, and always look forward to a nice lunch on “Thrilling Thursdays”! We always love it when our Care Workers pop into the office to say hello and have a cuppa with us. The office (where we also hold our induction training sessions) is based in Wavertree – away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, with ample free parking.

Meet Jacqui, one of our Care Workers in Liverpool

Jacqui Seasman

Care Worker

“I don’t want to be sitting in an office. My skills are people based – talking to people, caring for people. That’s what I’ve done all my life. It’s clear I love chatting to people!”

How did you come to work in the Care Sector?

I looked after my Dad when he was very poorly.  We had a few weeks with him at home before he passed away, with carers coming and going.  They were specialist Macmillan carers and were absolutely lovely.  They really took pressure off the family. And I thought ‘I’d like to do that’.

I joined when Be Caring was known as CASA, and have been here since March 2018. Before that I’d had a 13-year career in banking in a variety of customer facing roles.

It’s great because I’ve always wanted to do something a bit more on my feet (I didn’t want an office bottom!)  I absolutely love my job now. People’s skills are transferable, you don’t necessarily have to have been a carer for 15 years to know what good practice is.  It’s having the right values and way with people that counts.

What is the most valuable thing you've learnt as a Care Worker?

I appreciate the skills that I’ve learned.  Sadly, I lost my Mum over Christmas. It was very sudden, we only found out she had cancer a few months before she passed away, but I count myself lucky in being able to look after my Mum at home with my sisters.

I taught them how to move someone safely, how to change them and wash them while they’re in bed.  All these skills came in very useful for our family.  It meant we could look after Mum ourselves without any help from outside.

I count that as a privilege really that we were able to do that.  We offered to get her carers and she was like ‘nope, our Jackie can do that!’ My sisters were so glad that I was there to show them how to do it the right way.

What do you see yourself doing in the future?

In future, I’d like to complete my latest qualifications (which have been put on hold because of Covid). I’m not the world’s best writer, but I can put things into words, so my tutor would record our discussions as part of the assessment.  I like that there’s always something new to learn in this job.

I don’t want to be sitting in an office. My skills are people based – talking to people, caring for people – that’s what I’ve done all my life. It’s clear I love chatting to people!

Care and support for the people in our community

In Liverpool, we offer person-centred domiciliary home care, so that the people who we support can remain in their own homes. They are often coping with challenging conditions, recovering from illness and may require assistance with mobility.

We support with personal care, medication administration and often meal preparation. Sometimes simply offering a listening ear and smiling face each day can make a huge difference to the wellbeing of the people we care for.

 

Typically, we support the people we care for with tasks such as:

  • Medication management
  • Moving and positioning, includes use of equipment
  • Assistance with preparation of meals/drinks
  • Sitting service to provide family respite and overnight support
  • Enabling people to access the local community
  • Assistance with domestic tasks including laundry, cleaning and shopping
  • Personal care, including providing intimate care with dignity

Job Vacancies in Liverpool

We are always on the lookout for talented, friendly people who – like us – are truly passionate about care and want to make a real difference to the lives of others.

Jackie Lynn

Care Worker

“When I first joined as a new carer,  the team at the Liverpool office gave me all the support I needed. My first day on my own, I kept calling them and they helped me with the information I needed. As time has gone on I’ve called them less, but they are still there and help when I need it. I can’t fault the help and support I have had from the team in Liverpool”
