We truly value our dedicated team of care professionals, and we recognise that it takes exceptional people to do such a demanding yet rewarding job.
We offer our care professionals one of the best rates of pay across the care industry – £13 per hour on weekdays & £15 per hour on weekends (including double pay on bank holidays).
We are always keen to hear from people who are interested in joining our home care team. First and foremost, our care professionals are compassionate, caring, and thoughtful people who share our values and outlook on life.
A visiting carer, also known as a companion carer, is a professional carer who provides support and assistance to individuals in their own homes. Unlike live-in carers who reside with the client, visiting carers provide scheduled visits at specified times to deliver care and companionship.
Visiting carers offer a range of services depending on the needs of the individual. This may include assistance with personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing, and medication reminders. They can also provide companionship and emotional support, engage in social activities, accompany clients to appointments or outings and help with light household tasks.
The primary goal of a visiting carer is to ensure the well-being and safety of the individual while promoting their independence and quality of life. They play a vital role in helping clients maintain their routines, remain connected to their communities, and enhance their overall well-being.
Becoming a visiting carer can be a rewarding career choice for several reasons. Most importantly, it allows you to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others by providing essential care and companionship. You have the opportunity to build strong relationships with elderly individuals and support them in their daily lives.
In fact, working as a visiting carer provides the satisfaction of knowing that you are making a positive impact and improving the quality of life for those in need. As a visiting carer, you can help to reduce the risk of depression, cognitive decline, isolation and loneliness amongst the elderly.
In addition, being a visiting carer offers flexibility in terms of working hours and the ability to choose assignments that suit your schedule. You may be required to spend the day at the cinema one day and escort someone to an appointment the next.
