Community Care, in partnership with Unison, is exploring the issue of split shift working in the home care sector and the breaks care workers get in their jobs.
Home care workers already report poor eating habits, quality of sleep and family life as a result of their working patterns. Many also spend long periods of time sitting in their cars or out in the cold weather due to gaps between visits.
We are keen to find out more about the impact your working pattern has on your life. Take our survey and tell us more about the hours you work. All responses are confidential.
