About us

We are an award-winning employer rated “Outstanding” with CQC. When the Director moved to the area in 2002, he noticed a real shortage of high-quality person-centred care for older people locally. This ignited his passion to deliver a homecare service which could improve the quality of life and increase independence to an older person living in their own home, in turn also giving peace of mind to their families. What makes us stand out is we focus on a companionship led approach to the care we provide, making the person we support the centre of everything we do. 

Job Description

As a Live-in Carer Assistant, your role will be very rewarding, and you will be pivotal in providing the highest quality care to the people you support. The role can involve:

  • Helping someone get out of bed, washed/showered, dressed and other elements of personal care.
  • Preparing breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • Reminding / assisting them to take their medication.
  • Helping with light housework, laundry, vacuuming, ironing, or helping with activities the client enjoys.
  • Helping with grocery shopping.

Is this the job for you?

If you are reliable, trustworthy, and respectful, you enjoy building professional friendships and you have a caring, positive personality, as well as a passion to help someone, then you have the right qualities. It is preferred that you hold a driving licence.
