Being a CAREGiver
Becoming a CAREGiver is one of the most rewarding jobs there is. Your day will be as varied as the needs of the clients you visit. One day you will be helping someone to start their day by helping them out of bed then making them fresh and lovely to greet the world. After preparing a scrummy breakfast you could perhaps do a spot of ironing whilst chatting to your client over a cuppa.
Your next client may want to take a trip out to the local market or take a walk in the park. It's so much better for them to have someone to talk to and to keep them company while they walk.
Next you could be making lunch and joining in with a singsong with your client and Tom Jones on the radio.
Later in the day you'll be helping your client to bed after supper and a cozy chat by the fire.
One thing you will be doing throughout your day is feel hugely rewarded for having the chance to make a real difference to someone's life.
If you want to have a role where you don't mind getting up in the morning and one that doesnt have a desk that takes you prisoner all day, take a look at our job vacancies and give us a call on 01483 488222.
After a terrible experience with another provider who let me down late on a Friday (when I had to find care for the Monday). I contacted Home Instead who came out on the Saturday and they understood so well my mum's needs. My darling mum had dementia had dementia and needed constant care and Home Instead really understood her needs, they were kind and caring, they ensured it was mainly one person so a relationship was built up, after a few days my mum was calling out for Nikki as much as other family members, to me that showed her mum was happy and trusted Nikki. They came to see her in hospital, in the hospice and came to the funeral. I was so lucky that for those final few days that mum was at home, I had the help of Home Instead.Daughter of Mrs G, Woking
