KARE Kildare. Typical day involved caring for service users, bringing out on outings, helping with feeding, intimate care.
CE workers are treated as free, cheap labour to do the work that the full time employees should be doing, without any real training or shadowing structure in place. I would not advise anyone to do one of these schemes within KARE without first checking with someone who was previously based in the location in which you would be placed. You will do the exact same work as full time employees (while they surf the net!), for much less money and with no job security. There is a culture within the organisation of using and abusing CE workers.
