Can I Care?

Experience would be great, but not necessary as full training can be provided, However, it is essential that you hold a full driving licence and have access to vehicle.

You have got to be a caring person and want to make a difference.  A typical day would involve assisting clients with their routines, be it morning, lunchtime, evening or weekend routines.  This could involve assisting with getting out of bed, preparing meals, prompting medications, assisting clients to wash dress, assisting with personal care and ensuring they can get to the bathroom.  You may also do light house work or take them out into the local community to attend appointments.  You’re not just a carer you are a companion too, so the relationship and trust you have with your client is very important.  They need to feel at ease with you and relaxed. 

  • Are you semi-Retired/Retired and looking to make a difference?
  • Have you cared for a relative yourself and really enjoyed it?
  • Are you looking for a complete career change?
  • Are you a student looking for post qualifying experience?
