Come and work for an organisation with amazing family values as a Dementia Friend & Companion in the Wakefield area and not only be part of our family, but support someone else’s too. Car Drivers are essential as you will be working out in the community.

Are you naturally caring?

We have job vacancies for natural carers, people who really want to make a difference in their local community. You will be visiting older adults in their own home. Helping them with everyday task so they can continue to live in the environment which they love most and for as long as possible, duties will include:

Welcome to our Team

You would be joining an award-winning national brand founded by a family and with family values running throughout the service. Our service was opened by a husband and wife team over 2 years ago who were inspired by the family values ethos. They wanted to establish a high-quality home care service in the local area, promoting independence and dignity for their clients, achieving an Outstanding rating for caring on their first inspection. Not every homecare provider can boast that. Not only are the people they support their family, so are their Dementia Friends & Companions, and they are well rewarded for their hard work and dedication.

  • £8.85 - £9.10 per hour + paid mileage & paid travel time.
  • Full and part-time hours ranging from 16-40 hours per week.
  • Paid DBS & paid training.
  • Holidays accrued on all working time, including travel time (not every provider offers that).
  • Ongoing training and support and fantastic career progression.
  • Blue Light Card & £50 reward bonus after successful completion of probation.
  • Reward and Recognition programme for staff to celebrate success.
  • Access to employee portal with lots of discounts at major retailers.
  • Regular social events.
