Part-time and full time hours
Are you looking for Part-Time/full time hours and want to make a difference to someone like John*? Maybe you have considered Volunteer jobs? There is no upper age limit for applications, becoming a Paid Volunteer, Befriender & Companion could be perfect for you.
We have part time and full time roles available in Stockport and Tameside areas. No experience is required as excellent training is provided but you will need to have a full driving licence and access to a vehicle due to the nature of the role.
John* is 96 years old, he has lived in on her own since his wife died 20 years ago and has always been independent. Last year, John had a fall whilst out shopping and it knocked his confidence somewhat. He stopped going out and even became scared of the stairs in his own house and would often sleep on the sofa rather than go to bed. John* is typical of someone you would help, he still wants to get out and about, but confidence stops him, that is where you come in. You would help him with daily routines that have become harder for him but also take him out and keep him independent and doing the things he has always done. This would be things like helping him with his morning, lunchtime, or evening routine, or assisting with personal care where required, reminding him to take medication. Going shopping with him or taking him on an outing every week.
