Does this Care Professional & Companion job sound right for you?

“I have been part of this company for over 2-years now. I am a retired Veterinary Nurse but needed something to do to fill my time, but also something where I could still make a difference in a persons’ life. Then I found this role. The main part of my role is helping older adults continue living in their homes surrounded by all their treasured memories is the most amazing thing I have done.   

No two days are ever the same and I never have the Monday blues.  I support a few different clients with simple tasks, for example, getting up in the morning or going to bed in the evening, washing/showering/dressing, reminding them to take their medication, making a meal and doing a bit of housework. Some of my clients like to go for a walk around Barleylands Farm to see the new lambs, but due to the current Covid 19 restrictions, we can’t do this right now. So instead we sometimes sit in the garden with a glass of lemonade and look at old photographs. I never knew how rewarding helping older people could be”.
