The role of the CAREGiver changes with each client you visit, each client has their own personal Care Plan and it will be your responsibility to ensure that the older person receives the care that they need, this can be a mixture of the following :
Personal Care - To help support and assist the client to get up in the morning, to wash, dress and also to help get someone ready for bed in the evenings and erhaps prepare breakfast or supper, dependant on their personal needs.
Home Help - Light housework, washing up, hoovering, dusting, perhaps changing the bed and popping the washing on.
Companionship Care - Ensuring the client is not isolated and supporting them in whatever they enjoy doing, shopping, walking, listening to music or debating the state of the world.
Most clients require a combination of all three activities so it is fair to say that no two clients or days are the same, so we look to people who embrace the different roles within the job and enjoy the differences each day and client brings.
We do not require any formal qualifications just a willingness to undertake our award winning training and orientation programme.
As previously stated all CAREGivers must have their own transport to enable shopping trips, visits to the doctors or social events.
You must also have clear and concise verbal communication skills as some clients have hearing loss or Dementia and struggle to understand what is being said.
