About the work: The kind of work the women (or men) will have to do is described as a home care assistant. That means you will have to go from house to house looking after older people. Some of them are just old and weak, some are ill. Even though you may be trained, you will have to do your training here as well. The training comprises of 5 days theory training (where you will learn for example: Medication Policy, Emergency & Carer Responsibility, Risk Assessment, First Aid, Dementia, Food Hygiene, Safeguarding…) in the office + few days to accompanying the different carers to their clients – called shadowing.
The range of work types that care workers can expect to assist and help with are for example: – Getting Up, – Going to Bed, -Bathing, -Cooking, -Bed Making, -Dressing, -Food Preparation, -Feeding, -Using the Toilet, -Laundry, -Ironing, -Shopping, -House Duties. The wages are calculated based on how many clients/how many hours you have. It takes about 4 to 6 weeks to gain a full rota – i.e. about 6-10 clients. The work can start from 6.30am. as wake up calls and finish at 10 pm, when you put people to bed. Generally the cares are working six days a week – they have a break of about 4-6 hours in between. You will be given a number of clients where you will spend from 30 minutes to 1+ hour with each client. We will tell you how much time per client and what to do. You do not have to be a nurse. You should only want to be good people who want to look after older people. We may be able to help you find a room here (or we can give you the name of the area where you will work and you can find a room there yourself), as you do have to live within these areas.
