Description

We have a fantastic opportunity for a person with a caring nature to join our team, If you want to make a difference and actually spend time with clients rather than rushing from one place to the next then we are for you!

We are all about person-centred care and our services are adaptable to achieve this. Our visits vary from early morning breakfast to PJ’S and a hot chocolate. If you want to give a little back. Even make someone smile then you are what we are looking for;

Our CAREGivers don't rush around all day as the minimum time we visit a client is 1 hour, No 15 or half an hour calls we dedicate ourselves to provide the utmost respected care and with that extra time you can do so much more even if it is to sit down and drink tea!

CAREGivers are the most important part of our team you need to be able to hit the ground running as the face of Home Instead Senior care. We match you and clients together by your likes and interests giving you a running start to build that all important relationship.

We don't ask for experience, Only a warm friendly face who wants to make a difference, we do provide full training.
