What are the roles and responsibilities of a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Care Companion?

The biggest part of your role is making a difference, making someone’s life a bit easier and helping adults stay independent in their own home for as long as possible. People often have the wrong perception of what Carers do. All their clients’ needs vary, from companionship, domestic duties, assisting with personal care, preparing meals, helping with medication or taking them out to continue doing the things they love. If you also think about everything you do daily, you would be supporting someone to do the same.

Health & Social Care Jobs are very proud to advertise for this unique provider. If are excited by this amazing opportunity, then we welcome your applications/expressions of interest. Don’t worry if you have any questions, they will answer any questions you may have.

** PLEASE NOTE this is not a Volunteer job, it is paid employment and will involve personal care, however we are trying to attract those that would look for Volunteer type jobs.
