As a CAREGiver you will be matched with your clients based on shared hobbies, interests and experience. This will help you build a relationship based on trust and familiarity. Companionship is the starting point for all our services. You may organise and accompany your client on appointments or social visits, trips out or visits to friends. Some clients like to have some help to continue to participate in hobbies they enjoy, or simply want to reminisce about the past. In many instances your visit may provide an important respite for a family carer, especially when a loved one is living with dementia.
Assisting a client to get up in the morning or to bed at night and helping at meal times are the most common things people imagine when they think of personal care. The level of personal care depends on the needs of a client and our Care Manager will discuss this with your before matching takes place. You will always be introduced to a client before the care service commences and our extensive training plus support from your Care Manager will provide you with confidence to care.
As we age we may need a little extra help around the house to maintain our independence. Our services may include taking out the rubbish, dusting and vacuuming, making the beds and changing be linen and helping with shopping and cooking.
