Could you help someone like John he is 75 years old and has always been independent whilst living in his own home? He now struggles with little things that so many of us find simple, things like standing long enough to cook a meal or remembering to take his medication at the right time. He may also struggle getting upstairs to go to the toilet or get ready for bed.

You will be part of a local Care Support Work team who may visit someone like John 3 times a day, for 30 mins, to ensure he has taken his medication and prepared a meal. John knows that the team have lots of other people to visit, to help with their routines, but he knows they’ll soon be back to check on her again.

You would be helping him continue to be himself, do the things he loves and remain in his own home, a rewarding feeling like no other.

Their wonderful team and their development are also important to them. They invest in their staff team and everyone feels valued, many of the staff team have been there over 10 years!
