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.
My husband was not an easy patient and was resistant to care but the carers were always patient and good humoured and did their best to coax him into cooperating. If unable to help him they would turn their hand to anything to help me, from washing up, making beds, bringing in wood for the fire etc. If their hours needed to be changed these were usually rearranged with sometimes very little notice. I would have no hesitation in recommending Home Instead and, indeed moved to a Home Instead in Cambridge for help when we moved from the area because of Surrey Home Instead's consideration, personal service and professionalism.From the Wife of Client who relocated
