‘Supporting you to live your life’
We are an aging population with people living longer which in turns means there are more older people than ever in our communities that require support and practical help to enable them to stay safely and independently in their own homes.
What do you need? Only to care – it’s that simple.
With a person-centred approach, this rewarding opportunity will see you working with people (predominantly over the age of 65) providing individual personalised support in their own homes whilst encouraging them to build upon their abilities.
Tasks are varied and are likely to include supporting with personal care, assisting with medication, preparation and cooking of meals, together with any other activity appropriate to the individuals needs.
