Does this job sound right for you?

“I have been part of this company for over 18 months. I retired from the Fire Service 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 vulnerable older adults continue living in their homes surrounded by all their treasured memories and 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 Alan who is wonderful. I help him get up in the morning, have a shower, get dressed and make him some breakfast. I then go back at lunch time to prepare him a light lunch, do a spot of housework and have a chat, he has a lot of stories about his life that make me smile and laugh. The company do a minimum of 1-hour visits, so I’m never rushed, and I can spend quality time with my him. I also support an older lady called Sheila; she loves a trip to the Lighthouse Botanical Gardens where 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.”
