Become a CAREGiver today

What does it mean to be a CAREGiver?

We have a wide range of CAREGiver roles to suit people with varying levels of experience. Some involve providing companionship, spending time with clients doing what they love best. Others deliver more hands-on care for clients with more specific needs such as dementia, with duties including assisting with bathing and getting dressed. Take a look at our full list of care options here.

Who can become a CAREGiver?

Whether you’ve worked in the care sector before or want to make the move into care, we have a role for you. We prize a warm heart and caring nature above previous experience, providing training and support to help you reach your full potential.

Why join Home Instead?

Each of our CAREGivers is a valued member of the team, shown by our market-leading annual satisfaction survey scores. The latest survey we conducted among CAREGivers found that:

  • 96% are proud to work for Home Instead.
  • 95% feel motivated to go the extra mile.
  • 88% see themselves working at Home Instead in 12 months’ time.
  • 82% would recommend Home Instead as a great place to work.

Our training is just as exceptional. We are the only care company to be awarded two Princess Royal Training Awards for our Alzheimer’s and dementia training, which is City & Guilds accredited. Supporting and encouraging our CAREGivers in delivering their vital work is one of our biggest priorities.

Each Home Instead office has a close relationship with its CAREGivers, which helps maintain business success. Our values inform everything we do, and that means that our CAREGivers know how to deliver exceptional care.

The ‘Home Instead Way’ includes personalised one-to-one care, visits at a minimum of an hour, and an optimistic outlook on age. That’s how our CAREGivers know that they are making a positive difference to somebody’s life.

Award winning training

We welcome CAREGivers from all backgrounds and walks of life. No previous care experience is necessary to join Home Instead; we welcome people for their values, enthusiasm, empathy and warm hearts.

Our CAREGivers receive industry leading, award winning training to give them the confidence, knowledge and skills to care for our clients. Fully paid training ranges from basic moving and handling, right through to our City & Guilds assured Dementia and End of Life training, and City & Guilds preferred provider Parkinsons courses. We have additional opportunities to gain industry recognised qualifications such as Level 2 and 3 in Health and Social Care, and more!

As a CAREGiver at Home Instead you will be completely supported through a program of bespoke training and ongoing education, with opportunities to gain specialist knowledge, helping you to progress your career.

Our training does not stop with our CAREGivers! We also hold free community dementia workshops across the UK for anyone, take part in a multitude of community schemes such as fraud protection for the elderly, and publish advice and support articles on various subjects around ageing, fluids and nutrition, safety and wellness.

Giving back

Home Instead Charities bring happiness and joy to the lives of our ageing population, through improving and maintaining mental well-being and addressing loneliness and isolation.

Established in 2016, Home Instead Charities have now raised over £100,000, funding community programmes that support well-being or reduce and/or prevent isolation and loneliness. Our grants have supported virtual community activities and care packages throughout lockdown, and group activities and days out before this, helping over 20,000 ageing adults in the UK.

Our aim is to keep ageing adults happy, healthy and connected to their communities. We currently receive far more grant applications than we are able to award and so we have recently partnered with Home Instead USA and Canada to increase our efforts and capacity.
