The role

As a Befriender & Companion, you would be supporting an older adult in their own home with their daily routines. This could vary from washing, dressing (Personal Care), companionship, shopping, meal preparation, attending appointments/clubs and everything in between.  You would always be carefully matched to the person you will be supporting, and you will stay with the same clients on an ongoing basis, allowing you develop a strong bond. 

The Employer

To this provider, ‘care’ means quality care! The owner started the service to change the lives of people in need and inspire her children to make a difference in peoples’ lives. The company’s mission is to support older adults to be independent in their own homes, providing bespoke person-centred care service that really does benefit the people they support. Every visit is no less than an hour, meaning they can really tailor the support received whether that be companionship, home help or personal care services.
