We are looking for 'people people' to work one to one with older people in your local community. As a Care Companion & Elderly Befriender you could improve the quality of life for an older person in your community.

We have part-time jobs available in your local area. Come and help us on our mission to end loneliness amongst our local elderly population by joining us as a Care Companion & Elderly Befriender!

You could be joining our award winning, small friendly local home care company who's visits always involve an element of companionship. We have won multiple awards over the years and have built an excellent reputation in the local area. This home care service with the personal touch is different to any other care organisation in the area, providing a minimum of 1- hour home visits to a predominately private client base, but the focus being on companionship and loneliness prevention. The average visiting time is actually far higher at about 90 minutes and our friendly office team are sensible about travel time and distances as well. So you'll be visiting clients within a pre-agreed area to suit you.

- Flexible Part-time hours are available between 10-30 hours per week (unfortunately, we cannot offer purely school hours or full-time as each befriender only has a small circle of their own regular clients)

-Excellent training is provided and you'll meet some likeminded people

-The biggest benefit of all is making a difference every day and putting a smile on your clients faces
