What Does A CareGiver Do?
Our CareGivers are trained to provide care with dignity and respect and promote the Client’s independence rather than take it away. We also encourage CareGivers to bring fun and imagination to care visits by sharing their own passions, for example baking cakes, music & dancing or walking along the Sussex Coast.
Clients could have physical disabilities caused by illness, accident, or ageing and need a little extra support with daily tasks. Some may only need companionship whilst others may need more complex care. We will carefully match the you to the Client and support you to be happy and confident in your care role.
CareGivers assist Clients with the following:
- promote mental and physical wellbeing through companionship, taking Clients out or encouraging activities such as reading, writing, and hobbies
- personal care needs including dressing, undressing, washing, bathing and toileting
- mobility issues and physical disabilities requiring help with care aids and personal equipment
- make and change bedding and light domestic tasks such as laundry
- meal preparation for breakfast, lunch or dinner
- administer medication and creams
- monitor and record Client’s wellbeing digitally using the OpenPASS app
