Job Description

We have immediate starts for Home Care Companions & Befrienders in Littlehampton and surrounding areas of West Sussex. It would be useful to have some experience working in a care setting or interacting with older people, but this isn’t essential as we provide full training. It could be a personal experience of caring for a family member or experience volunteering. This job involves visiting more than one adult living in their own home in the community; you must hold a driver's licence and access a reliable vehicle.

We are advertising this job on behalf of our client. They are part of a Nation Care Provider franchise group. Their office is in the Littlehampton area and their team is dedicated in providing the highest quality of care on a completely individual basis. Their goal is for you to see us as trusted companions and an extension of your family, whether we are accompanying clients to social events, helping with light housekeeping or assisting with personal care needs.

Being a Home Care Companions & Befrienders is paid employment, and you must be willing to commit to regular hours and have some flexibility. There will also be elements of light personal care during most of our Care Companion & Befriender calls.

Pay Rates, Hours & Benefits

• Excellent pay rates from £10.50-£13.00 per hour (double on bank holidays)

• Mileage allowance & Paid travel/waiting time.

• We urgently need Caregivers to cover a range of hours between 5 pm and 9 pm, weekend hours between 7 am – 9 pm.

• We also have availability for hours including early mornings, lunchtimes, early evenings, and alternate weekends.

• Excellent training provided and a genuine opportunity for progression.

• A chance to make extra cash with our "Refer a Friend" scheme.

Do you have a kind, compassionate heart, and want to truly make a difference to the quality of life for lonely, vulnerable adults in your local community? If you have been thinking about volunteering to help isolated older adults in your community, you are who we would like to meet.

You will be part of a team that has been carefully closely matched to their client's needs. You will regularly visit the same clients for a minimum of 1-hour to ensure continuity of care, and you will never feel rushed.

Due to the current lockdown restrictions, our clients are not able to leave their homes. The pandemic is causing many to feel stressed, anxious, frightened, and lonely.

Although part of the role is to sit and have a chat over with a cup of tea, there is also more support you will provide, which will help someone to live independently in their own home with all their memories which they hold close to their heart.

Home Care Companions & Befrienders, you will carry out a variety of tasks which may include.

• Support clients to get up and ready for the day ahead.

• Prepare a bath/shower to the right temperature and stay close by in case they need your help or assist with bathing if required.

• Assist with dressing and undressing; zips and buttons can be so fiddly for older adults.

• Prepare medication and remind our client take their medicine.

• Carry out some light housework. Can you imagine what it is like when you spot a cobweb on your ceiling that you can't reach?

• Meal preparation.

• Do some shopping or pick up a prescription.
