Feedback from a Christies Carer
Why you should choose to be a Christies Carer
Values, skills and attributes
What makes an outstanding Christies Carer?
Our carers come from all walks of life but what stands out amongst them all is a desire to care and to make a difference in the lives of others. We will provide you with all the training you need.
We are looking for dedicated, compassionate, reliable individuals with strong initiative and a friendly, helpful manner. Being a live-in carer or visiting care assistant can be a challenging and unpredictable job, but it is also an extremely rewarding position. Every day, when you care for someone, you will be making a huge difference to that person and their family; and sharing some extraordinary moments.
A domiciliary carer can come from any background with any experience. Our carers have been secretaries, bank managers, mothers, fathers, students, nurses, soldiers and teachers. Some have worked as carers previously, for hourly care agencies or care homes, some have no professional experience at all.
Your day to day role
As a Christies Carer you will live in the home of your client or visit regularly as an hourly home carer, helping to deliver a person-centred care plan to enable them to live as independently as possible.
Our unique training programme will provide you with the skills and expertise to provide medication management, mobility support, including the use of lifting equipment, personal care and companionship.
You will also be required to undertake light housekeeping duties to include the planning and preparation of meals so, some basic cooking skills are essential. Some of our clients also have pets who you may help care for too but this will be discussed and agreed in advance of your placement.
