Along with everyday domestic tasks such as light housework, shopping, meal preparation and laundry, you could be providing friendly social visits or taking clients on outings and to appointments. No personal care is involved.
Staywell’s Help@Home service is different, as we can offer our clients an additional range of support services, such as free Information, Advice and Advocacy, Handyperson services and social centres, all from a trusted local organisation which has been established for over 70 years.
‘I have been part of the Staywell team for just over two and a half years and I am not exaggerating when I say that this has been the best job I have ever had. We have gone from strength to strength to deliver a service which enables our clients to feel supported through decision making and choices which empowers their lives and gives them a greater sense of wellbeing. I have felt supported by everyone from the very first day I started.’ (Sally, Help@Home Team)
