Don’t Retire! Retiring isn’t for everyone, so we would love to talk to you!

Your life skills are prefect for us, and you have so much to offer especially to someone in your local community. We have Part-Time hours available for people who are retired or looking to Semi Retire in the Plympton area of Plymouth to become a Care Companion & Dementia Advocate. 

  • £10.50 per hour weekdays, £11.50 Weekends, plus mileage.
  • Enhanced Bank Holiday Rates.
  • Paid Travel & Waiting time.
  • Early mornings, evenings & some hours on alternate weekends.
  • Minimum 1-hour home visit.
  • Excellent initial training, ongoing support & development.

Who are We?

We are an organisation who have won countless awards for changing the way older people living in their own receive care & combat loneliness. Some need company after a spouse passes away, others need support when they develop early onset Dementia. We offer a very different approach to regular homecare providers. We are very proud that we support older adults in Plympton & the surrounding areas by offering companionship led care. So rather than quickly popping in to check on someone we spend at least an hour with someone, do activities together, go out and lots more!

Spend your days keeping someone company and doing things together, gaining a friend & impacting someone else’s life!

  • Cooking breakfast, whether it’s porridge or a nice soft-boiled egg.
  • Helping someone with their morning routine.
  • Helping someone get in & out of the shower.
  • Taking someone out for the day.
  • Making cakes, playing cards, board games or watching game shows on the TV.
  • Helping with cooking meals and staying nourished and hydrated.
  • Offering companionship, friendship and a trusted friend who cares.
  • Assisting with medication reminders.
  • Providing evening companionship & preparing them for bedtime.

Our People

Most of our team have had previous careers such as Nurses, Police Officers, Estate Agents, Hairdressers, Retail Assistants, Senior Managers. just to name a few. Many join us because they have reached the time of their life where career isn’t as important as fulfilment, and many choose to do this job to do something they have always wanted to do. That is to give back to the local community and offer support to someone who really needs it.
