There’s a reason for the saying there’s no place like home or home is where the heart is.
Your home is where you create the vast majority of your memories.
The excitement of moving in for the first time with the one you love; bringing up your children, seeing your grandchildren, entertaining friends, and generally sharing lots of happy times together.
So, imagine what it must be like when suddenly remaining at home becomes more difficult?
In the vast majority of cases, that’s because as we age, the things we took for granted, such as maintaining your home, getting in and out of bed, up and down the stairs and personal care, are no longer as easy to do.
Therefore, the prospect of having to leave your home is not only massively upsetting, it can have an even worse impact on your health and wellbeing.
So, this is where YOU come in!
Caremark provides services which enable people to continue living in their own home. This can include everything from personal care, medication support and meal preparation, through to live-in care or just simple companionship.
You don’t need to have previous care experience to join our team, although if you have that’s great, as all training is provided.
Most importantly that you are a kind, caring and compassionate person who wants to make a difference to people’s lives.
And don’t see this as just a job, but as a career with continuous professional development and a real opportunity to progress.
Don’t believe us?
Then see what our carers say.
Carers like Rosie Chapman. After having her children, music teacher Rosie decided the time was right for a change of career.
She says: “I wanted something that was flexible enough to allow me to spend time caring for the children and also do meaningful work that was varied.
“People are always happiest in their homes and the longer they can stay in them the better. Helping them to achieve that is rewarding.”
Or how about Amber Milton. Furloughed from her job as a cabin crew attendant with Virgin Airlines, she became a carer to fill in the time and earn some extra money, and she enjoyed it so much she has stayed and is combining both jobs.
Amber says: “I thought it would be elderly people but that’s not always the case, some of the clients can be in their thirties and for a variety of reasons need help and care.
“Me and mum were there for my grandad when he became ill and I find it heart breaking that there is no-one there for some people and that’s why I find this work with Caremark so rewarding.”
We will leave the last word to our Care Manager Paula Wilce. She had only worked for us for three months before we made her our Care Manager (see we told you there was clear progression!) as it was obvious that she was born to care.
Paula says: “It is so rewarding because for many of our customers we are often the only person they see all day, so knowing what you are doing makes such a difference to peoples’ lives is an amazing feeling.”
