The Employer

With a 9.9 average rating on homecare.co.uk and a Good rating with the CQC, to this provider, ‘care’ means quality care! The Directors started the service to make a difference in their local community by providing a bespoke companionship led care service. To them it is important to treat each client as if they were family and keep them independent in their own homes for as long as possible. Every visit is no less than an hour, meaning they can really tailor the support received whether that be companionship, home help or personal care services.

The role

As a Dementia Friend & Companion, you would be supporting an older adult in their own home with their daily routines. This could vary from washing, dressing (Personal Care), companionship, shopping, meal preparation, attending appointments/clubs and everything in between.  You would always be carefully matched to the person you will be supporting, and you will stay with the same clients on an ongoing basis, allowing you develop a strong bond. 

You can feel valued & appreciated every day in this role! It does not matter what job you have done in the past, or if you have never worked, if you can make an older person’s life brighter and feel great satisfaction from doing it, you are exactly who we are looking for.
