Hourly care assistant jobs

As a care assistant, you’ll visit our elderly clients’ homes for visits of 1 hour upwards where you will provide outstanding home care and support. This may involve providing companionship and personal care, basic help in the home, shopping and meal preparation support or delivering specialist care based on training received such as dementia care or medication administration. Importantly, you’ll support a small number of elderly clients to continue to live in their own home with well-being. We provide visits of a minimum of 1 hour, and often longer, to ensure you have the time to build meaningful relationships and do your job properly. You don’t need prior experience to be a care assistant as full training is provided, however you’ll need to have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and to be a good listener. Being chatty also helps given the importance of companionship in this role.

Live-in carer jobs

Being a professional live-in carer is a hugely rewarding role where you can make a genuine difference to someone’s life. We know that to do this well you need both the best employment package and the best support. This is why we are rated OUTSTANDING by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and our staff are proud to work for us. As a live-in carer, you will live in our elderly clients’ homes on a week on / off rotation basis where you will provide outstanding home care and support. This may involve providing companionship and personal care, basic help in the home, shopping and meal preparation support or delivering specialist care based on training received such as dementia care or medication administration. Working in a live-in care team of two, the care and support you provide to your client will be based on their personalised care plan, enabling them to experience the highest level of health and social well-being possible. You will generally work on a 1 or 2 week on / off basis, or an alternative shift pattern that better suits your lifestyle. You may be a carer already, or have cared for a friend or family member, with a clear passion to support others. Whatever your circumstances, we can provide you with fantastic pay, regular holidays, great benefits, market leading training and 24/7 local support.
