Being a CAREGiver
Our CAREGivers are special people. They are not carers who rush into someone’s house… always with an eye on the clock for the next call…. Putting something in the microwave for lunch and leaving. We work in North Oxfordshire and South West Northamptonshire. Do please contact us by clicking here or call 01295 237237 if you feel this could be for you.
Our CAREGivers want to get to know their clients, they want to feel good about what they’re doing and to brighten up someone’s day.
At Home Instead we place great emphasis on the relationship between our CAREGivers and our clients. Of course the tasks we perform are important but we believe they are best delivered by people who know and trust their clients. For this reason we don’t rush our visits; you will do a minimum of an hour with a client. You will also see the same person over time and so get to know them well.
If you want to know more have a look at this video from Kinga Dabrowska who won Home Instead CAREGiver of the year last year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inNgvxelcd0
If this sounds like you and you have time to spare why not give us a call. We’d be happy to have a chat on the phone and meet up for a cuppa and a chat. Take a look at what some of our staff say about us here.

I was lucky enough to find Graham and his team in October 2013 to help my 86 year old Mother stay at home for a further 6 months. It was a very unusual situation, I live in Australia and Mum has no other family. My mum's Alzheimers had got to a point where she needed support at mealtimes, taking her medicine, reassuring her in the evenings before bed and mostly company. My mum is a very independent, feisty and sometimes difficult person. Graham and his team were amazing throughout the 6 months from beginning to end and as you can imagine living in Australia a huge source of reassurance and comfort to me (almost like having a family member back home) that Mum was OK. In the first place Grahams ability to understand my Mum's unique personality and needs and then be able to identify and recruit a number of ladies who were able to build a strong relationship with Mum and deal with the times when she was difficult in an understanding and respectful way. The ladies were fantastic and went out of their way to do extra things for Mum, bringing cakes, taking her for trips and sometimes when Mum had a fall taking her to hospital, visiting her in hospital, staying on longer at night if Mum was nervous etc. Throughout the 6 months Graham and his team were incredibly responsive to questions, concerns etc I would have and would keep me up to date constantly (often late at night or early in morning). I would strongly recommend the team, you couldn't do better and I will be eternally grateful for the help and support they gave Mum and equally the emotional help and support they provided me. You couldn't do better. Thanks Graham and ladies.Mr D. Melbourne, Australia
