Are you looking for part-time hours and want to make a difference? We are looking for individuals to work one to one with an older person in your local community. As their Care Assistant & Companion, your job would be helping them to stay independent in their own home as well continuing to do all the activities they love.

Come and join the best!

Imagine having Dementia but still being able to go to your dancing class on a Saturday, still being able to pick up your pension, still going into town on a Wednesday for a cup of tea and some company!

You would be helping make these things happen every day!
