Home Care Assistants
We are a premier domiciliary care company based in Southampton looking for enthusiastic home carers to join our ever-growing team, on a full time or part time shift basis, where walkers and drivers are BOTH welcome. We offer shift work 7am-2pm or 2pm-9pm OR both, you can do as many or as little of these shifts as you like to make up your desired hours.
We also have an excellent opportunity for the suitable candidate willing to learn, progress and achieve in their career joining our ‘Emergency Response Care Assistant’ team where experience and a driver’s license/own transport is preferred.
- At Enthuse Care we make it possible for people who need care or support to maintain independence in the comfort of their own home.
- You will support our clients with everyday tasks such as getting into and out of bed, washing, bathing and dressing, preparing food, prompting medication, home help and running errands such as shopping and cleaning and most importantly providing companionship.
- Each visit typically lasts 30 minutes to a few hours and your rota will consist of a round – a cluster of clients in order to maintain an enjoyable working day without the hustle of travel.
The emergency response care assistant would be a little more flexible with travel as would need to be able to pick up calls at last minute. Other tasks for the ‘ECA’ would be Assessments of new clients including emergency care plans, Office administration and answering telephone, Call Rostering and client reviews.
