As a care worker you will visit the homes of elderly disabled and vulnerable adults to provide a range of services which enable them to live independently. In care, no two days are the same, but typically, you will be helping with things like personal care and hygiene, assistance with dressing, meal preparation, medication assistance and social support and companionship.
Don’t worry if this all sounds new, we provide comprehensive induction training, which includes a period of shadowing with senior carers.
Requirements of Domiciliary Care Assistant:
- You don’t need to have experience as a carer, as a full training programme including induction training will be provided.
- You will need a driving licence, and access to a vehicle, as care is based in the community and you will be driving between clients.
- Employment subject to proof of eligibility to work in the UK, enhanced DBS checks and satisfactory references.
