Caring in your Community

If you live in the communities of Epping, Loughton, Ongar and surrounding areas of Essex and want to brighten someone’s day up by making their lives a bit easier, we would love to speak with you about joining our award-winning team.

Who will I support?

You will be carefully matched and introduced to the person you will be supporting, and you will share a great relationship together. Your visits will never be rushed, and they are never less than an hour, allowing you to spend quality time with the person we match you with. 

Because you get to know one another well, the care that you would provide is never awkward, just natural. Some people worry about personal care, but people also have the wrong idea what personal care means – if this is something you are unsure about, we can explain this to you once you apply.  

As a Dementia Friend & Companion, the Care & Support an individual requires varies greatly, after all everyone is unique!  All our clients vary from being very independent to some that need much more care and support. You could -

  • Arrive with a smile for an early morning call.
  • Prepare breakfast and assist someone with their morning routine whilst chatting away!
  • Assisting with morning or evening routine.
  • Prompt to take medication.
  • Preparing lunch together, taking care of their nutrition needs is important.
  • Going on outings (once restrictions are eased), hospital visits or visiting the shops.
  • End of the day companionship, hot drink, and chat before bedtime.
