Caring Neighbour

£10.40 - £10.75 per hour + mileage
 

Job Description

Part-Time, Caring Neighbour, Job Vacancy, Northampton and surrounding areas. 

Growing up I always remember my grandma’s caring neighbours.  When my gran sadly lost her husband, they looked out for her, brought her warm meals, soup and regularly popped in to see if she was ok.  Her other neighbour John took her shopping to her local supermarket every Friday, without fail for the last 12 years!  Are you that kind of person?

We are looking for Caring Neighbours to work in our local community providing companionship, care & support to the older adults living in your local neighbourhood.  Age is inevitable and at some point, in our lives we will all need care think about what that would look like to you.  Becoming a Caring Neighbour is such a rewarding role, it is a job that is fantastic for anyone who has spare time on their hands and wants to make a difference, many people join us who are lonely themselves, have maybe retired and want to do something with their time. Is that you?

What would I do as a caring neighbour?

  • Visit one or two older adults in your local community within their own home.
  • Provide companionship, personal care & support as well as help with everyday tasks.
  • Go on outings, shopping, appointments or attend activities together.
  • Prepare breakfast, dinner, or evening meal together.
  • Spend time together helping to combat loneliness and prevent isolation.
  • Help keep someone independent, safe and happy.
  • Be that person they can rely on and look forward to seeing every day.

As we get older, we would all like to think we had a caring neighbour just like you.  After all the older adults in our community deserve the highest quality of care and companionship and to be able to remain in the place, they feel the safest, at home.

    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 & Home Helper, 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.
