Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Care Companion, Callow End, Worcestershire

We are looking for special people who want to do something rewarding in the local community and have considered Volunteer work to become a Care Companion. This is not a Volunteer job, but we are seeking passionate caring people to make a difference to an older adult in your local community in Callow End. You would be joining a brand-new homecare provider aspiring to change the way people think about care and how it is delivered to older adults living in their own homes in the local community.

So, if you have a big heart, you live close by and you want to change the way care is delivered, then this could be perfect for you. It is essential that you hold a full driving licence and have access to a vehicle.

We have hours available in Callow End, Powick, Worcester, Upton upon Severn, Colwall, Welland, Kempsey, Hanley Swan, Clifton, Hanley Castle, Rushwick, Hallow and surrounding areas.

Duties

All of the people our client supports have different needs. As their Care Companion, you will provide companionship, assist with personal care, help with domestic duties, preparing meals and medication, or taking them out to continue doing the things they love such as shopping, going to a show or to a local community group. If you think about everything you do daily and take for granted, you would be supporting someone to do the same. Sometimes the small things, can make the biggest difference.

Join a company like no other

Our client is an independent, modern, family run company built on wonderful values and beliefs. They have created a special place to work where you could play a part in changing the care sector. They were founded following a family experience of care and aspire to be outstanding and believe there is no compromise in care. Everybody deserves the highest standard of care and support, and to be treated with dignity and respect, mediocre care is not an option. Each of their team shares their vision and they are proud for each person to deliver that vision.

Pay rates, hours & benefits

  • £9.00 - £11.00 per hour + 30p mileage allowance;
  • Full and part-time hours, contracted hours;
  • Flexible hours so you can meet your personal and family commitments;
  • Enough time between calls so you can arrive safely and be composed;
  • Enhanced bank holiday rate and paid shadowing shifts;
  • Employee wellbeing scheme including retail discounts + health plans;

This is more than a job, so if you are excited by this opportunity and you share these values, then we would love to hear from you.
