What would I be doing?

Everyone’s needs differ, some of their clients are more independent than others, you will be carefully matched to an older adult in your local area needing companionship and support.  This could vary from helping them to get up, get dressed, have breakfast to preparing a meal or taking them out for the day. To be a fantastic companion, are you:

  • Caring, compassionate and patient?
  • Do you have a great personality and would make a fantastic befriender?
  • Looking for a part-time job where you can make a difference?
  • Available for either early mornings, lunchtimes, evenings, or a few hours on alternate weekends?
