We are looking for Care Assistants & Companions in the  Llandough and surround areas of Glamorgan, Wales.

Do you have an unfulfilling job role that you want to swap for a job where you can give something back? A job that you can make a positive difference to the life of an older person living in your local community. If so, then becoming one of our Care Assistant & Companions could be perfect for you. Being a car driver is essential. If you have previous experience in the care sector and the right availability, then we are also able to offer average hour contracts.

Does this sound like the role for you?

“I have been part of this company for over 2-years now. I am a retired Shopkeeper but needed something to do to fill my time, but also something where I could still make a difference in a person’s life. Then I found this role. The main part of my role is helping older adults continue living in their homes surrounded by all their treasured memories and it is the most amazing thing I have done.   

No two days are ever the same and I never have the Monday blues. I support an older gentleman called Dennis who is wonderful. I help him get up in the morning, get dressed and make him some breakfast. I will then go back at lunch time to prepare him something to eat, do a spot of cleaning and have a chat, he has a lot of stories about his life that make me smile and laugh. I thought I would struggle with the personal care elements of the role, but I don’t, I realise it is no different to what I would do for a friend or relative. The company do a minimum of 1-hour visits so I’m never rushed and can spend quality time with my clients. I also support an older lady called Gwen, she loves a trip out to the garden centre, and I struggle to keep up with her. I don’t see this as a job, it’s a privilege, I only wish I had done it sooner.”   

Be part of something special

We are an award-winning national brand who focus on a companionship led care service. We have won multiple awards over the years and have built an excellent reputation within communities across the UK. We are different to any other care organisation in the area, providing care visits to a purely private client base, but the focus being on companionship. Our Directors opened the service following an experience of trying to find care for their own family and they wanted to create a service that was high-quality, helped people in the local community and become a centre of excellence for Alzheimer’s and Dementia care.
