Our client is looking for Home Care Assistants in Burton-on-Trent and surrounding areas. Working for an award-winning provider our client specialises in providing the highest quality care to private clients living in the local area.  This is a typical example of one of our customers:

“I've lived in my house for the last 40 years and it holds all my memories.  Many of my friends have now died so I get lonely.   Although I can do things for myself, I am not as independent or confident doing things for myself, around the house or when I am out and about as much as I used to be!"

As my Home Care Assistant, you would be available to help me when I really need it, for example:

  • Helping me with my morning routine, washing and dressing, help with picking me some clothes giving me the motivation to get up on a morning and making sure I eat breakfast.
  • Heating up a meal for me at lunch time or helping me prepare something fresh - I hope you can make great mash potatoes but if not smash will be fine!
  • I do have to take some medication so just a reminder to take them is always helpful!
  • I may from time to time require help with tidying round my house.
  • Taking me out shopping or to hospital/doctors' appointments when needed.  I love to shop!
  • Help preparing my evening meal
  • I also sometimes need help with my bedtime routine I'm not as nimble on my feet as I used to be.

What are the hours, pay rates and benefits?

  • Part time hours are available (10 -25) hours per week, including mornings, lunchtimes, afternoons or evenings and weekends
  • £8.25 per hour - £17.50 per hour (Bank Holidays)
