Key tasks and responsibilities

  • One of the key tasks of this role is to be a companion to the client you are assigned to care for. They can often be lonely and isolated, so it is important you are a friendly and warm person who can build up a rapport with the care clients.
  • Many clients have mobility issues, so you will be required to assist them in moving about in their everyday lives – for example, helping them get out of bed in the morning and then getting into bed at night.
  • Their mobility can also sometimes affect the ability of the clients to perform household tasks, such as light housekeeping and laundry. Where required, you will assist the client in these functions.
  • You will be required to assist clients with all aspects of their daily personal hygiene regimes. This includes washing and bathing the clients and providing any assistance they may require in accessing and using toilet facilities.
  • Nutrition plays an important part in the welfare of our clients. As such, you will assist the clients with cooking, including preparing meals, providing any assistance with eating that may be required and also cleaning and tidying away any utensils, plates, etc that have been used.
  • Finally, one of your key tasks will revolve around assisting our clients to maintain their independence, so you will assist them on any social outings such as going shopping.
