Does this job sound right for you?

“I have been part of this company for over 2-years now. I retired from the 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 an older gentleman called John who is wonderful. I help him get up in the morning, have a shower, get dressed and make him some breakfast. I will then go back at lunch time to prepare him something to eat, do a spot of cleaning and have a chat, he has a lot of stories about his life that make me smile and laugh. The company do a minimum of 1-hour visits so I’m never rushed and can spend quality time with my clients. I also support an older lady called Rita, she loves a trip to the Harlequin Theatre or to Priory Farm Nursery I struggle to keep up with her. I don’t see this as a job, it’s a privilege, I only wish I had done it sooner.”
