This job role forms part of a brand new team, providing high quality care and support to an elderly lady in her own home. Having been very independent, our service user’s mobility has deteriorated and she is now reliant upon a rollator frame indoors.

Are you compassionate, patient, friendly and empathetic? Are you the kind of person who wants to add real value to someone’s life? Do you have excellent communication skills, tact and diplomacy? If this sounds like you, we can offer you an interesting opportunity.

Shifts are Monday to Sunday inclusive, generally starting at 9am.

Enquiries welcome from those with a holistic approach to care and strive for positive outcomes. A driving licence is essential (auto gearbox) to drive our service users car. At our service users request, the job is open to female applicants only.

We offer you:

* work with specific Service User

* permanent contract of 14 per week

* paid training
