Job description

Flexible Full & Part-Time, Home Helper & Companion, Permanent Job Vacancy, Bedford, Bedfordshire. No previous experience needed - You do need to BE A CAR DRIVER with your own car.

It is a pleasure knowing there are people like you that love nothing more than caring for others and brightening someone’s day. After all, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone smile and making their lives that bit easier, sometimes by doing the simplest of things.

Could you help Mavis*?

Mavis had a stroke in 2019 and that’s when she was diagnosed with early stages of Dementia. It has made the things she loves doing difficult, and sometimes she cannot quite say the words she’s looking for. She also had a fall earlier in the year and she’s not as steady on her feet as she once was. We have made such a difference to Mavis, we enable her to remain at home in the place she loves, she feels like part of our family. We help Mavis get out of bed and dressed in the morning, make her a cup of tea and breakfast which is usually porridge and blueberries, we sometimes pick up some shopping for her, help her to get in and out of the shower safely, and provider her with much needed companionship.

Matching You

You will be carefully matched and introduced to the person you will be supporting, and you will share a great relationship together. Your visits are never less than an hour, meaning you spend quality time with the person we match you with.
