We are a friendly and dedicated home care company who have been successfully providing high quality care and support to our customers since 2007. We are proud to announce that over one third of our staff have been working for us for over 8 years. To us, that says something about the way we treat our people.

We train, we look after and we appreciate all of our staff.  Our office in Haywards Heath is run and managed by an experienced team, most of whom have been care workers themselves. This means that they understand what care workers need in order to do their job well... and we provide it; good salaries, good support and excellent training and promotion for candidates who want that little bit more.

If you are conscientious, kind, hard-working and approachable - why not give us a call. It could be the call that changes your life for the better.

KEY DUTIES

Supporting a maximum of 10 customers in a defined area with your colleagues.

Our customers are older people.  As well as needing general support with their personal care and health, we are equally dedicated to enhancing our customers’ general wellbeing and combatting loneliness. Duties will therefore include taking customers to other customer’s homes in the area; arranging shopping trips; popping in for a chat and a cup of tea; visits to the garden centre and other community activities.

On a day to day basis you will be interacting with customers such as “Daisy” who is an 80-year-old woman who has recently had a stroke.  “Daisy” lives in a house with her husband.  With the support of people like you, “Daisy” is able to continue to live in her own home with her husband and live an independent life.

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

You need to be a caring, compassionate person with a great sense of responsibility and a commitment to making a difference to your customer’s lives. In return, we will support you all of the way.

You will need a driving licence and access to a vehicle as whilst our customers live in close proximity to one another, transport is still required.  You will also need to complete a security check known as a DBS, as you are working with vulnerable people.

Care experience is not essential but is preferred. If you are the right person for us we will give you comprehensive training both in the classroom and in the field.  

WHAT WE REQUIRE FROM YOU

·         Have the Right to Work in the UK

·         Be passionate about providing high quality care and support to our customers

·         Be self-motivated, with good organisational skills

·         Be caring & sensitive to the needs of others

·         Have the ability to use own initiative

·         Be able to communicate effectively

·         Promote anti-discriminatory practice and equality for all customers and colleagues

·         Be competent to complete any required documentation within the service

·         CAR DRIVERS ARE ESSENTIAL

WHO WE ARE

 We are registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide care and support to customers living in their own homes. We have a very good report from the CQC.

We have been awarded a contract with West Sussex County Council for which we require Community Care Assistants.
