CAREGiver


We’re looking for people with the personality and passion to build great relationships with our clients

Our clients trust us. They will rely on you to listen carefully to what they need, take an interest in them and deliver excellent care.  If you enjoy interacting with older individuals and want to pursue an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of older people, caregiving might be the career for you.

The central and most important part of a CAREGiving role with Home Instead is offering companionship and conversation.  Each of our CAREGivers is matched to a client based on mutual interests and hobbies to encourage a strong relationship to develop. 


We believe you need this understanding and bond to be able to care for someone as if they were a member of your own family.  Indeed, many of our CAREGivers do not have formal experience of working as a carer before they join our team, but have looked after a family member and want to make a difference to an older person’s life by using the experience they have gained.

Our service is companionship led and so a considerable responsibility of a CAREGiver is to stimulate and encourage the client through a range of different activities that sustain or improve their quality of life.  A CAREGiver’s responsibilities can also include accompanying clients to appointments and social events, light housekeeping, planning and preparing meals and helping with daily living routines.

We are looking for friendly, kind, compassionate people who like to spend time with older people and build a friendly but professional relationship.  Therefore we don’t believe in onerous application forms, we prefer to meet face to face for a chat to make sure you match our values and most importantly for you to see what Home Instead is all about. Don’t worry if you don’t have sector experience, we have extensive training and on-going development opportunities that will enable to you deliver our special brand of relationship-led care.

So if this sounds like you, either call us now on 0300 012 0123 or apply now.

CAREGiver of the Year Keith

I loved my time in the constabulary. But working in homecare, helping older people continue living in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes surrounded by a lifetime of memories is the most rewarding experience of my career to date.

A beautiful bond that twinkles bright

I think of Sandra as a great friend rather than a carer, she brings sunshine and smiles into my home. We chat about everything and anything. I look forward to seeing her because we get on so well. It’s such a beautiful bond that we have. We make a perfect pair.
