Responsibilities
The role of a home care assistant is varied, and each day is different. Some of our clients do require personal care, however, some just need a chat and a cup of tea.
A daily routine could be assistance with getting out of bed, washing, bathing, or showering as required. Help with dressing and once ready, preparation of their favourite breakfast and morning medication assistance. You will see clients on a regular basis, getting to know their needs and routines with the help of our handy app. Care plans and visit details can be reviewed on the app, so you can be safe in the knowledge that you are providing the best possible support.
At the heart of everything we do, there is a very grateful service user, supported to maintain their chosen lifestyle and routine. If you are looking for a rewarding career, home care is the one for you. Make a difference in your local community and be the friendly face on a difficult day.
