We’re looking for more Home Care Workers to help make their lives a little easier. It’s important that we treat our clients with the dignity, privacy and respect they deserve. To ensure you’re getting the most out of your role with us, we’ll make sure there’s plenty of support for you through continuous training and personal development.
Home visits to our clients are usually for a minimum of one hour, maybe more depending on the jobs you undertake. This gives you the opportunity to really get to know the people you’re caring for and this, in turn, ensures you’re making a significant and positive impact on their quality of life.
Here’s a range of duties you’ll be involved with:
- Shopping and meal preparation
- Medical reminders
- Laundry and general housework
- Companion and support to clients attending day centres, clubs and days out
- Personal care (which may include assisting with washing, dressing, etc.)
Whilst it would be useful if you have previous relevant experience gained in a similar role, this is not essential.
However, it is essential that you have:
- A caring and compassionate nature and a willingness to help and support others
- Good numeracy and literacy skills
- The ability to work on your own initiative and without supervision
- An understanding of the need for confidentiality
- A current UK driving licence and your own car to travel to client’s homes
- The ability to obtain a clean, enhanced DBS check
- A commitment to continuous personal and professional development.
These are highly rewarding roles where you can fit your life around your work.
- Go home at the end of the day knowing you made a real difference to the life of a family.
- Be the kind of person who’s trustworthy enough to become part of someone’s family.
- Start a career, it’s so much more than a job.
Here is what one of our carer has to say about working with us
“I was firstly drawn to Q1Care’s more friendly and family orientated atmosphere, and regularly seeing the founder and the care manager out visiting clients is lovely, they’re like one big extended family . It’s a very calm and friendly place to work. The clients at Q1 have, by far, the most person centered and focused dedicated team I’ve seen in any care environment, I’ve worked in care homes and they just don’t compare. Our clients are very well looked after and their safety and that of the carers is the absolute top priority.
Other members of the team welcomed and helped me got right in and there was absolutely nothing I wanted, nor waited, for with regards to doing my job well.
The management and office staff are very approachable, we all talk as concerned friends really, and they’re always there to lend an ear or a hand, during my first week I was always on the phone checking and asking questions but no one was ever too busy to help.
They are very professional on procedures, safety, problems, and working etiquette, we are monitored and checked up on but it’s never an ‘added pressure’ situation.
The main priority of all Q1 staff is to ensure each individual has what they need, what they’d like and that their personal and individual preferences, are adhered to as much as possible, this creates such a wonderful homely feel to the work as well.”
