Role and Responsibilities

As a member of our Senior Care Team, some level of flexibility is required for this role and you may be required on occasion to cover shifts up to 11pm.

You will spend the main portion of your week supporting our clients to live an independent life in their own homes by visiting them during the day and providing help with day-to-day tasks that may include:

  • Personal care (showering/bathing, dressing, continence care etc.)
  • Domestic tasks (laundry, hoovering, washing up, general tidying etc.)
  • Cooking or preparing meals
  • Shopping
  • Medication
  • Companionship

As a Senior Care Assistant, we also offer the opportunity to gain skills in other areas and these tasks may include:

  • Providing shadowing for new starters
  • Supervisions
  • Risk assessments
  • Supporting the office team

Please note: Due to the nature of the role, you will need transport to be able to get between the clients’ homes, so a car is essential for this role. We provide a daily petrol allowance to support with this.

How we support Senior Care Assistants
