Care work is a very busy field and it offers several ways for livelihood support. According to the manifold, even a care worker who has an appropriate care counseling mind will bring up the service theory when he or she provides care service. The reason for this is because, in the care work field, there are many support services that are appropriate in the morning, but become unsuitable in the afternoon. A care worker needs to have a counseling mind to live up to the expectations of pro-consumer services in this busy field. It is likely to be misunderstood that arranging in practice needs no philosophy and ethics for care work; however, in reality, this is not the case. This is care counseling, and it should be learned in the realm of ″care" according to the circumstances of the care work field. It is appropriate for the counseling mind to learn genuinely in the areas of "human and society", but it is difficult in today's education system to realize both of them.
