Care Assistant & Companion, Beeston

£9.00 - £10.00 per hour plus paid travel time

Flexible full and part-time hours available

Are you looking for a new and rewarding career in the New Year? Would you like to make a difference to someone like Joe*? Maybe you have considered Volunteer jobs? There is no upper age limit for applications, becoming a Care Assistant & Companion could be perfect for you.

We have jobs available in the Nottingham area of Nottinghamshire. It is desirable that you have a UK driving licence and have access to your own vehicle due to the nature of the role. We have work in Beeston, Snienton, The Meadows, Carlton, St. Ann’s, Mapperley, Sherwood, Arnold, Bestwood, Bulwell, Old & New Basford, Long Eaton, Radford, Aspley, Chilwell, Stapleford, Wollaton and surrounding areas.

My name is *Joe and I live at home in my own house with all my memories. Since my wife passed away, I am very lonely. Things I used to find easy are now becoming difficult and I can’t keep up with my daily duties. I have a wonderful carer called Sarah and she comes to see me 5 times a week. She helps to get me up in the morning, washed and dressed and makes my breakfast.

We sit and chat for a bit and then she will say goodbye, as I know she must go and visit someone else who needs help. Sarah comes back to see me at lunch time, reminds me to take my medication and makes me a healthy meal. Whilst I am eating my lunch, she is very kind and does a little housework. She sometimes takes me out to the local shops or to go see my friends. Some days she may also come back to help me up the stairs to bed. I am so grateful for Sarah, she is like my extended family and I don’t know what I’d do without her, I always look forward to seeing her.”
