Come and join the best!

You could be joining an award winning national brand who focus on a companionship led care service. They have won multiple awards over the years and have built an excellent reputation within communities across the UK. They have recently been awarded "Outstanding" by the CQC, which is an amazing achievement.

This exceptional service is different to any other care organisation in the area, providing a minimum of 1-hour home visits to a purely private client base, but the focus being on companionship. Imagine having Dementia but still being able to go to your dancing class on a Saturday, still being able to pop to the shops, still going into town on a Wednesday for a cuppa!

You would be helping make these things happen every day!
