Could you help Mary*?

Mary is 80 years old and has started to struggle with little things that so many of us find simple. She might struggle to follow simple steps such as following a recipe when cooking a meal or sometimes forgetting to have a wash, she might also get muddled with peoples’ names. However, she does love to sing, and music seems to always cheer her up and remind her of special memories. She can get lonely from time to time though, and she needs a bit more help round the house. Could you be the person to make a difference to Mary? 

As a Care Assistant & Companion, you will carefully be matched to older adults in your local community, supporting them to remain independent both in their own home and by keeping them active in the local community. We only do a minimum of 1-hour visits, so you are never rushed. You would always see the same clients too. This would include any of the following:

  • Assisting with daily routine including mornings, lunchtimes, and evenings.
  • Assisting with personal care where required.
  • Prompting to take any medications.
  • Taking clients out shopping or attending local groups, events, or appointments.
  • Preparing meals and light household duties.
  • Being someone, they can rely on.

About Us

We are rated Outstanding by the CQC rating and to us, care is personal. As a team we are all truly committed to making a difference and we want to lead the way locally in changing the way our older members of our community are looked after in their older years. When you join our team, you will instantly know what a special organisation we are. Everyone in our team feels valued and supported. Throughout your journey with us and we can offer you not just a job but a truly rewarding vocation! There is care… but then there is the way we deliver care.
