£10.00 per hour, plus double rate on Bank Holidays + mileage allowance

Flexible part-time Evening & Weekend Hours

If you are looking for something new and rewarding to do in 2020, a role where you make a difference in a person’s life and end each day with a feeling like no other, then we could have what you are looking for. Imagine doing something that is more than just a job.

We have opportunities to do something amazing and become a Care Companion in the Stockport and Tameside areas of Greater Manchester. You do not need experience as full training is provided, you just need a big heart. It is essential that you have a driving licence and access to a vehicle due to the nature of the role. You could be part of something to be proud of like this:

 “My Nana was diagnosed with early onset Dementia earlier this year and the word immediately frightened me. Nan has lived on her own for a few years since my Grandad passed away but has always been independent, so this diagnosis worried me that she would no longer stay living in the place that holds all her memories and where she spent over 50 years with Grandad.  

However, Nan has had wonderful companionship, care and support from people she has grown so fond of, we as a family have more peace of mind as we know she’s not alone. She has been able to keep getting out and about doing the things she loves, including visiting her local music group, and most importantly you have allowed her to keep being herself in the home that she loves. The personal care received has been respectful and dignified. Thank you will never be enough.”  

Be part of something special

You could be joining an award-winning national brand who focus on a companionship led care service. They have won multiple awards over the years and have built an excellent reputation within communities across the UK. This exceptional service is different to any other care organisation in the area, providing a minimum of 1-hour home visits to a lovely client base, specialising in Dementia, Companionship & personal care. The Directors started the service based on their Grandmother’s poor care, so they wanted to work closely in their local community ensuring every person receives the highest standard of care and companionship, so they live life to the full.

Sounds exciting, right? So, what will the Care Companion role involve?

They will carefully match you to mainly older adults in your local community and you will support them to remain independent both in their own home and by keeping them active in the local community.  This would include any of the following:

  • Assisting with daily routine including mornings, lunchtimes and evenings;
  • Assisting with light personal care;
  • Prompting to take any medications;
  • Taking them out shopping or attending local groups, events or appointments;
  • Preparing meals and light household duties;
  • Being a someone they can rely on.

Benefits & Hours

  • 8-hour and 15-hour contracts available or zero-hour contracts if that suits you better;
  • Opportunities for career progression and support towards further accredited qualifications.
  • Hours that will fit into your life - If you have availability evenings and weekends, then this position is ideal for you;
  • Employee assistance programme
  • The biggest benefit of all is doing a rewarding job and making a difference every day.
  • Becoming a Companion isn’t just a job, you will be gaining a friend too!
