Social Care Myth Busters

Social care mythbusters

What is it about social care that generates so much myth, misunderstanding  and downright untruth?

This document challenges myths, one by one.

  • Social care all about elderly people in a residential care home;
  • The pay is poor;
  • Social care is a dead-­‐end job with no training and development opportunities.

Find out why all these statements, and more, are false assumptions.

Many social care  jobs offer flexible hours. You could choose to work part-time, to fit around family or other commitment, or have a full-time career. Whatever you choose, social care is rewarding and fulfilling with a wealth of opportunities.
