The Job of a Care Assistant & Home Helper

Your job will be to make a difference every day to an older person living in their own home by becoming their Care Assistant & Home Helper.  All of our client's needs vary, but the ultimate goal is to keep them independent and safe in their own homes as they reach old age.  The length of time you spend with them can vary from 30 minutes to over an hour.  This could include:

  • To be an advocate, companion and someone they trust and rely on.
  • An early morning call to make sure they are up and about ready for the day ahead.
  • Assisting with preparing breakfast - making sure they eat regularly.
  • Assisting with any personal care - personal care can be as simple as putting toothpaste on a toothbrush, brushing hair, assisting them in and out of the shower to emptying a commode. (This varies significantly from person to person)
  • Taking them out maybe into town, to an appointment or to collect a prescription.
  • Preparing lunch and making sure they have everything they need for the afternoon.
  • An early evening call to get them settled for the night.
