The sorts of things our Care Assistants do vary client by client:
  • helping get out of bed, or getting dressed,
  • getting breakfast/other meals of the day – depending on the time of your visit
  • helping with personal care such as washing, showering is part of the role
  • assisting with eating and drinking; or just having a cuppa with you
  • assisting with medication/applying creams/giving drops
  • getting to know them as people, their likes/dislikes, and how best we can support independent living at home; and maintaining dignity.

Working with clients in their own homes, you’ll mainly be working on your own;however back up of colleagues and management is always at the end of a What’s-App or phone call.

  • cheerful, smiling, have sense of humour?
  • can be relied on and have a ‘can-do’ approach?
  • good at putting training into practice?
  • have respect and care for others (in our case, clients and colleagues)?
  • good at observation and listening?

Here’s what some of our Carer’s say about their work(Steph, Jade and Kelly have all enjoyed progression with us) 

New Dawn Care Agency are committed to fair treatment and opportunity for all. We do all we can to ensure that staff are not discriminated against in development and training as a result of them working unsocial hours. ‘Equal opportunities’ is a continual process of inclusion – helping all those who use our services, or are considering doing so, enjoy equal access.
