Why A Career in Therapeutic Care Can Be A Great Choice


There are lots of career paths you can go down if you are interested in working in healthcare, and they all offer very different professional experiences – from analyzing samples in a lab or managing hospital resources to taking care of patients or setting policies. While most people think of doctors and nurses when they think about health care workers, there are hundreds of specialisms, even just within these roles, and then there are all the other careers that support the operations of healthcare facilities too!

As you might expect from a field so broad, there is a job to suit just about everyone’s interests and requirements when it comes to working lifestyle. One of the less obvious areas of healthcare that can actually offer fantastic opportunities and a great work life balance is working in fields within therapeutic care. This can mean jobs like being a physical therapist, respiratory therapist, speech therapist, or any other expert therapy discipline.

Why Therapeutic Care Jobs Can Be Very Rewarding

Caring for people in any capacity can naturally be a rewarding thing to do with your working life, however, in therapeutic care jobs you generally get to work closely with individual patients on a long-term basis, seeing the improvements they are making or working with them to make sure their conditions are managed as comfortably as possible. In these types of jobs, while you will work with a lot of different people, you will be their go-to person for the type of therapy you provide, and you’ll have a big impact on their lives!

Work in A Field You Care About Personally

There are all kinds of therapies that patients with different issues need, and so you can choose to study and work in an area that you have a personal interest in. Perhaps you know someone who needs the help of a respiratory therapist and so you want to work in that field and find the best respiratory therapy programs, or maybe you yourself have overcome problems caused by an injury thanks to physical therapy and want to help others do the same. Perhaps you are simply very interested in a particular type of therapy because how it works or fascinates you, or you feel particularly sympathetic towards people with certain conditions and want to work with them. You can always find a style of therapeutic care that you value personally to specialize in and practice.

A Good Work-Life Balance

Another good thing about this kind of work is that it is provided on an appointment basis, so you should always know when you’ll be working, making it easier to find a good work-life balance. You may also be able to work part-time if this is something you would prefer.

As you can see, therapeutic care careers have a lot going for them and are well worth considering studying for if you like the idea of rewarding work that is also something you can balance well with your personal life.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
