Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Care Companion

 

Job Description

Part-Time Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Care Companion Job Vacancy, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire – No experience necessary – We offer Award Winning Training

 

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.

Caring in your Community

If you live in the communities of High Wycombe, Marlow, Amersham, Chalfont, Chesham, Beaconsfield, then we would love to welcome you to the team.

Who will I support?

You will be carefully matched and introduced to the person you will be supporting, and you will share a great relationship together.  Your visits will never be rushed, and they are never less than an hour, allowing you spend quality time with the person we match you with.  Because you get to know one another well, the care that you would provide is never awkward, just natural. 

As a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Care Companion, the Care & Support an individual requires varies greatly, after all everyone is unique!  All our clients vary from being very independent, to some that require a higher level of care and support.

“I worked as a Teacher for many years, but as I reached retirement age, I still wanted to work in the community. I just wish I had made the move sooner. I love my job, its part-time, so I have plenty of time to spend with my Grandchildren. I have a small number of clients, who have become good friends. I cannot believe I get to do this as “a job”! My client visits vary, some are housebound, we offer them support within their home, do a food shop, and keep the home tidy. One of my ladies likes me to run her a bath, help her get in and out and wash her hair. One client just enjoys my company, and we have tea and cake and a good natter. I have a client, who I support with his journey living with dementia, we spend lots of time reminiscing and singing. I help keep him safe at home and prepare his meals.” Karen, Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Care Companion.
