Putting people at the heart of care

“My name is Elsa and I work for a homecare company around the Wallsend area and I absolutely love my job. I support older people living in their own homes and help them stay independent. I help with everyday tasks like washing and dressing, personal care, medication, preparing meals as well as taking them out for appointments or just to keep doing the things they love. They don’t want people just to feel looked after, but to feel confident and happy too. Seeing them smile and knowing I have made a difference really makes my day and lets me know I am doing something so rewarding. I couldn’t work for anyone else. The company are brilliant. They have wonderful values where people are put first. They make sure you are fully trained and supported to do the best you can. We are a fantastic team which you could be part of.”
