Emma Gore Managed Advertising Consultant

Job Description

We are looking for full or part time hours Paid Volunteers, Befrienders & Companions who live in Chippenham, and surrounding areas of Wiltshire. Maybe you have been considered Volunteer jobs?

No experience is required as full training will be provided. However, it is essential that you have a full driving licence and have access to a vehicle.

There is no upper age limit for applications, becoming a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Care Companion could be perfect for you.

We are looking for caring and empathetic individuals to become local stars and support older adults in the local community. Could you make a difference to someone like Judy*?

Judy lives on her own and suffered a broken hip after falling whilst out shopping. She became scared of leaving her home in case she had another fall and she was often very lonely. We arranged for a lovely girl called Christine to visit Judy as her regular Care Companion. Christine has helped Judy regain her confidence by gently persuading her to overcome her fears. She helps her get up in the morning, makes her breakfast and maybe do a bit of light housework. Some days she will help her up the stairs to bed in the evening. Christine now takes her out on outings to her dance group with all her friends and out into town to do her shopping and have a nice cuppa. Judy said, “she thought she would never get a change to enjoy doing the things she loves doing most”. This has now become possible with the help and support care from Christine and you could help someone in your local community too and share that feeling.

Be part of something special and join a fantastic homecare branch.

This provider puts their client at the forefront of everything they do and help people to remain in the place they love the most, their home.

    Support Eileen

    Eileen is 82 and lives on her own near to Wootton Bassett. Eileen had a stroke in 2018 and that’s when she was diagnosed with early stages 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 Eileen that she feels like part of the family.

Then at night we will help Eileen into bed, making sure she has her tea and that she’s comfortable. This is not a job to us, it’s a privilege and a true vocation.
