Job description

People often have the wrong perception of what our Care Assistants do. All our clients’ needs vary, from companionship, domestic duties, assisting with personal care, preparing meals, helping with medication or taking them out to continue doing the things they love. If you also think about everything you do daily, you would be supporting someone to do the same. If you are caring in nature, trustworthy, patient and understanding and want to make a difference, then why not do something rewarding. It is a feeling like no other.

Don’t worry if you have any questions, we will have a chat with you once you have applied and put your mind at ease on any questions you may have regarding joining our team!
