Are you looking for a rewarding career? Would you like to make a difference to the life of an older person and someone like May*? There is no upper age limit and becoming a Care Assistant & Companion could be perfect for you.
We have part-time jobs available in in Burton on Trent, Barton-under-Needwood, Tutbury, Anslow, Yoxall, Repton and Willington areas of Staffordshire. No experience is required as excellent training is provided. It is preferred that you have a full driving licence and access to a vehicle.
My name is *May and I live at home in my own house with all my memories. Since my husband passed away, I am very lonely. Things I used to find easy are now becoming difficult and I can’t keep up with my daily duties. I have a wonderful carer called Lisa and she comes to see me 5 times a week. She helps to get me up in the morning, washed and dressed and makes my breakfast.
We sit and chat for a bit and then she will say goodbye, as I know she must go and visit someone else who needs help. Lisa comes back to see me at lunch time, reminds me to take my medication and makes me a healthy meal. Whilst I am eating my lunch, she is very kind and does a little housework. She sometimes takes me out to the local shops or to go see my friends. Some days she may also come back to help me up the stairs to bed. I am so grateful for Lisa, she is like my extended family and I don’t know what I’d do without her, I always look forward to seeing her."
