Care Assistant

Here in our Brentwood branch we have a Care Assistant vacancy, it is community based which means you will be supporting customers to remain as independent as possible in their own homes.

We provide care from 7am to 10pm 7 days a week and we also provide live in care support, so whether its full time, part time, or even live in care you are wishing to apply for, please don't delay, get in touch today.

We are looking for hard working, reliable, and friendly Carers/Care Assistants to come on board and join us.

Supporting the Brentwood and surrounding areas, including Ongar, Shenfield, Hutton, West Horndon, and a few other local areas.

The Care Assistant role includes providing companionship and support when needed. Medication assistance, from prompting to administering, helping with personal care , domestic duties, meal preparation and just being there and doing some of those tasks for our customers that we take for granted because we still can support ourselves. We all know that sometimes we might be the only person they see, and because of this, we want our carers to just make sure that the care they give is of the highest standard and that you make the difference out there. Every visit really does count.
