With hundreds of vacant positions in the adult social care sector due to growing demand, the County Council’s resourcing solutions team is continuing to promote the Make Care Matter campaign.
There are currently more than 50 County Council vacancies for care and support workers, 20 specifically in reablement, and many more within our provider service partners.
In this second video in the Make Care Matter series we hear from Reda Djama, a reablement worker based at Jesmond House in Harrogate.
In the film, Reda discusses the importance of reablement to the clients he works with in supporting their recovery and helping them live independent lives. Reda also touches on how he got into adult social care and how his role fits around family life.
Reda said: “I am proud of what I do. It can be challenging, but it’s also extremely rewarding building those relationships. Seeing the progress people make and knowing that I’m helping them to maintain their lifestyle makes the role so much more worthwhile. When I get up on a morning I know I am going to be making people happy and helping them get some of their independence back.”
Reda’s story will be followed by further Make Care Matter films in the coming weeks, so look out for the next instalment.
