An award-winning employer with a 9.9 average rating on homecare.co.uk and a Good rating with the CQC, they are looking for naturally caring people to join their team on a Part-Time basis. You will be visiting older adults in their own homes and providing much needed companionship and support.  You would not only be helping to combat loneliness, but also helping someone with everyday tasks within their homes.

You would be well supported in your role, provided the relevant PPE, and you would always see the same, regular clients.

Every older adult they support is unique, as we get older there are some things that we may give up doing or struggle to do. Your job as a Dementia Friend & Companion is to ensure that there is continuity in their routine and that they stay safe, happy, and content in their own homes.
