Description

Our Clients depend on their dedicated Care Worker to support them with the daily activities of living in their home.

To unlock your true potential, you will be able to have full access to our extensive Career Pathway Framework.

Right at Home is an award-winning homecare company with a professional and can-do approach. Our care delivery is friendly, caring, committed and is inspirational to our Clients.

Each of our Clients have a personalised care plan including a 1 Page Profile which is tailored to their specific needs, hobbies and interests. We then accurately match our Care Workers to each Client to maximise companionship and daily interaction. This way, both our Clients and care team can get the most out of time spent together.

Our service is focussed on the desired outcomes of the Client. Each visit should accomplish, or work towards, a key goal or activity that our Clients wish to achieve. Whether this is receiving support to re-engage in your local community; or to get up in the morning and ready to start their day, you could be the one to make these special and important moments happen.

By becoming a Care Worker, you are not only supporting people to live a happier and fulfilled life, you will also become an integral part of ensuring their families can have peace of mind knowing that their loved one is in the best hands.
