You could visit someone for 15 minutes through to several hours. You’ll be expected to travel between service users homes and so you’ll need a full UK driving licence along with access to a car.

Visiting Care Workers help assist those living in their own homes with personal care; helping them get out of bed in the morning, assisting individuals with washing and dressing, supporting with continence care as well as helping with household chores. Assisting with medication is something that you will also be asked to help with.

Being companions for our service usersis an important part of our Care Workers roles. Being there for them and listening to them is a key aspect of the role which provides a welcome conversation for our service users.

Qualifications and training

Although there are no specific requirements for the role it is desirable if you have a Diploma level 2 or 3. If you don’t then there is no need to worry as we provide the opportunity for you to enrol on a Diploma course after six months.

Skills and experience

Previous experience in home care is desirable, this can be in the form of an informal role; caring for a family member. If you don’t have care experience then we’ll give you the opportunity at interview to demonstrate some service user service skills as a basis to build on.

What’s most important for the role is fantastic communication skills; both verbal and written. You’ll need to engage with the service users by speaking with them and listening to them. You’ll also need to communicate with your colleagues on a daily basis.

We offer a complete service for our service users, to help them remain in the comfort and safety of their own home. We’re very sensitive to our service users needs to receive a complete care service.

The benefits of full-time Live In Care work

This service allows our service users to stay in the comfort and safety of their own home, it also enables care workers to build a relationship with the service user.

Changeovers

We allow time for our care workers on changeover days to discuss fully the care we are providing for the service user. This allows us to maintain a constant and safe service.

Transport

Care Force is based in Worcestershire; a beautiful part of England. Being able to drive is a great advantage, it will enable you and the service user to get out and about to enjoy the Malvern Hills and other local beauty spots as well as shopping etc.

Getting it right

We make a special effort to make sure we put the right care worker with the service user, it is very important that the pairing works for us to ensure we provide the right care and also very important that the service user is happy.

Sometimes our service users like to have someone stay with them over night, they don’t necessarily need someone to assist them with anything, simply someone to be in the house as a sleep in care worker. There are others who prefer someone to be awake throughout the night so as to be there if they need assistance with things such as going to the toilet.

Sleep in and waking night care workers require excellent service users service and definitely need to ability to empathize and reassure those that they support.

Previous experience in one or more of the following areas is certainly desirable:

  • Adult care
  • Older adult care
  • Specialist dementia care
  • Palliative care
