  • £8.00 per hour for under 25s;
  • Choice of 4 weekly or weekly pay;

Be part of something special

This is an exciting opportunity to work for a family-run business who have a passion for making life better for older people in their community. Their service is tailored to meet the needs of their clients and even the directors still provide care in the community as they understand that what really matters, are the people they support. They also recognise that providing great care to their clients is down to the hard work and dedication of their team, so they have created an approachable, supportive environment where all the team can feel part of the family.

Is this the job for you?

This is a rewarding role where you can truly make a difference to a person’s life. A normal day may involve assisting clients with their routines, be it morning, lunchtime, evening or weekend routines. This could involve assisting with getting out of bed, preparing meals, prompting medications or assisting clients to wash and dress. You may also take them to appointments or social clubs, out to the shops or help them keep their house tidy.

You could help tackle loneliness and make sure that they feel fully involved in the local community, which is an amazing feeling.

Being a Community Care Assistant can be hard work, but it is very rewarding. So, if you are looking for a job where you can make a difference to the lives of others, we would love to hear from you.
