Job description.

Care Giver.


Independent Living provides a homecare service to those living within a 20 mile radius of its main work location. Support varies from client to client, but Independent Living ensures that all clients receive the highest level of care.

Our staff help people in need to live as independently as possible, by providing support at home. We aim to ensure that all of our visits last for a minimum of 1 hour, strongly believing that the little extra time helps to build a strong relationship with those we support, also helping to combat loneliness. In turn, visits go at a pace suitable to those we support.

Our service offers long term care and support to clients in their own homes, assisting those who require additional help to ensure that they are able to remain living in them. Whether they battle an on-going medical condition, an acute illness or simply because they feel an additional pair of hands would be beneficial to their standard of living, we are there to assist.

After all, everybody is better at home.
