  • What will I actually doing then?  -Well it can be anything some people may need help to prepare meals some people will need to have their meals prepared for them. Some people will have a regular plan of activity this can include going shopping, going to the pictures, attending a dentist appointment or going for a haircut. If you can imagine being left with a relative to look after for the day then this is pretty much it with a lot more support.  We support people who are very able to hold a conversation and some who are not. We will do our best to people match you at interview. So if you say you like cycling we may have someone who loves nothing more than to going cycling or going for long walks.  Others may be interested in sports or hand crafts such as sewing or knitting.  We will do our best to match you with interests in these kinds of things.  We believe that if you enjoy what you do then you are more likely to be successful and find it more rewarding.

Its really important you fill it in yourself and tell us as much as you can about yourself. Its an important step in us establishing that this kind of work is right for you. This kind of work can be challenging as you can imagine not everyone cooperates with requests or has a good day every day. Skills and abilities will be those of motivating people being upbeat and really being patient and above all caring. If this work is going well for you it can be amazingly rewarding.  Helping someone pay for their shopping for the first time or getting them to phone a family member on their birthday can be amazing. You might even say I enjoy this so much I'm amazed I'm getting paid! (well we hope so!) We train staff well and people are never left alone with our Managers and Directors being on call 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
