What are the 6 Cs for a Carer?

The 6 Cs for a Carer are a set of values required by all patient-facing health and social care staff in the NHS who list them as follows:

 

  • Care is at the core of our business and the care services we deliver should always help to support and bring joy to elderly loved ones living independently at home. Our clients have the right to expect their care to be consistently right for them.
  • Compassion is how our elder care services are given through meaningful relationships based on empathy, respect and dignity. 
  • Competence means that all our Care Assistants and support staff must have the ability to understand their clients’ health and social needs and have the expertise and knowledge to deliver effective care.
  • Communication is central to successful caring relationships and to effective team working. It is vital that we take the time to listen to our clients’ needs.

  • Commitment to our clients is a cornerstone of what we do. Commitment to our employees allows them to embrace the journey of learning and growing to their full potential.

All our Bright Care employees apply the 6Cs principles to their work and are also expected to follow our core values.

Is home care work hard?

Home care work can be rewarding, but it can also be physically and emotionally demanding. The level of difficulty varies depending on the needs of the client. 

Some aspects to consider when evaluating if home care work is right for you are activities such as lifting, bathing, dressing, and transferring clients. Depending on the client’s mobility and health, this can require a certain degree of physical strength and stamina.

Providing care to individuals who are elderly and possibly experiencing serious health conditions, such as dementia, can be emotionally challenging. Carers often develop close relationships with their clients and may face difficult situations, such as end-of-life care.

At Bright Care we train our Care Assistants in every aspect of their role, so they are fully prepared to deliver exceptional in-home elder care. Each Carer is allocated a Care Manager who supports them with any challenges they may face and is on hand to answer any questions about their role.
