We are looking for Care Assistants & Companions for in the Swansea area. Are you looking for a part-time Job near you? A Job that makes a difference, perhaps you have been looking for Volunteer jobs? Or maybe you are looking for a complete career change? There is no upper age limit & we welcome applications from those who are retired/semi-retired.

Making a difference to someone’s everyday life is so rewarding, along with creating lots of memories and knowing you have contributed to making someone’s day that bit happier and easier!

Our Business & why we do what we do: -

I am the very proud owner of an Award Winning, Companionship led care service in my local community in Swansea. We have been providing Companionship led care and support to Older People in their own homes now for 12 years. 

Often an older person only receives help when it is an emergency situation.  We support older adults from the very moment they need it, it could be that they have lost their confidence, they could have memory problems, they could have an illness, or they have just become disengaged in life! We are here to make it better. We want you to help make a difference in someone’s everyday life, that’s why the role is so rewarding!

Could you?

Could you help us provide a service to older adults which fits around their lifestyle, is perfectly flexible and allows them to carry on living independently in their own home? We perfectly match every one of our Care Assistants & Companions to our clients, often sharing similar interests or hobbies.  We do this though to an extremely high standard.

Because we match you to our clients you will build up a close relationship with each other, you won’t be strangers. Could you: -

  • Help someone with their housekeeping?
  • Help someone prepare or cook a meal?
  • Be a fantastic companion and friend?
  • Support someone to wash and dress?
  • Take someone out for the day maybe into Swansea, and enjoy the things they do?
  • Be flexible and work part-time, availability includes mornings, lunchtimes, evenings and alternate weekends?

This is not a job, it is a vocation and to do this role you will need to be kind and compassionate, with a big heart!  It doesn’t matter how old you are, what job you have done in the past, or if you have never worked. If you can make an older person’s life brighter, feel great satisfaction from doing it, then you are exactly who we are looking for.
