The typical role of a carer involves; personal care, shopping, cooking and assistance with feeding, light housework, and in most cases driving.
Becoming a carer is not your average 9 – 5 job and it requires a special kind of person who always has the interests of the client at heart; someone who truly cares about others. It is a great opportunity for the carer to build a strong professional relationship with a client within their own home, whilst maintaining the highest levels of care and best practice. Becoming a Carer is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling roles you could ever do and is a great entry level into the care industry.
The role of a carer is both challenging and demanding and requires an incredibly selfless individual who prioritises the care and safety of another. There is a huge amount of personal responsibility involved when caring for someone within their own home and each of our carers displays the same caring attitude we expect from everyone who works for us.
