Job description

During social isolating you may have noticed that vulnerable older people in your community are struggling with being alone. Just think how nice it would be to help put a smile on their face and give them something to look forward to, your visit! You will be part of a small team, visiting older people in their own home on a regular basis. You could be visiting someone who has early signs of Dementia, or they may not have family who live close enough to help with their housework, prepare meals, get up and about in the morning or get ready for bed in the evening, shower, bath, get dressed and other elements of personal care and remind them to take medication. 

When we can all move around safely, you will also be supporting them out and about in the community by on outing to the supermarket, doctors, hospital or simply going for an outing. This could be the most rewarding role you ever take on especially with the current situation in the country.

Benefits & Hours

  • £9.50 - £10.00 per hour, mileage allowance, travel time is paid at National Minimum wage and paid holidays.
  • Between 10-30 hours per week available - guaranteed hours' contract if you have the right availability.
