Job Details

Company DescriptionOur Mission is to improve the quality of life for the Elders in our community in an authentic and meaningful way. Our relationship-led Care is designed to meet the needs of older people that are struggling to maintain their independence and sense of self-worth in a world that is unsympathetic to the challenges of our older generation.

Home Instead Senior Care is the world's leading provider of care and companionship services for older people. We match our Live-in CAREGivers to our clients based on mutual interests and hobbies to help build bonds of trust, enabling us to provide compassionate, relationship-led support from the heart. We are immensely proud of the innovative and holistic care we provide.

Job DescriptionA quiet, well educated and widely travelled gentleman requires slow and gentle support to remain independent and active at home. We are looking for people with kind, compassionate hearts who, as a live-in CAREGiver, could make a true difference to his quality of life.

As a live-in CAREGiver, you will live in the client's home and provide a variety of non-medical services to help him remain safe, confident and independent in his own home. The type of Care you will provide includes meal preparation, assisting with medication, helping with personal care, maintaining contact with family and friends, participating in hobbies and most importantly to provide a listening ear to someone who may be experiencing loneliness.

Live-in CAREGivers reside in their own separate room with access to a TV and WiFi. You are provided with 3 meals a day or a meal allowance. You will have continuous daily contact and support from your team leader.

Qualifications
  • Empathy, good listening skills, and a willingness to make a difference to someone's life. The rest you need to know will be taught through our accredited training with opportunities for specialisation and progress.
  • Personal experience of caring for a friend or relative is ideal.
  • Basic literacy and numeracy skills.
  • English speaking.
  • Driver preferred but not essential.
You do not need any experience or particular qualifications to become a CAREGiver. However, it would be useful to have some experience of working in a care setting or interacting with older people. You will have a passion for supporting others and pride yourself on finding creative ways to improve an older person's life. You will be reliable, trustworthy, compassionate and respectful. You will enjoy building professional friendships and be part of a team focusing on making the world a better place for the older members of our community.
