Care Assistant


Home Care Assistants provide a lifeline for many lonely and vulnerable people. We help with dressing, washing, shopping, medication and housework as well as providing a sympathetic ear over a cup of tea.

Often, we as carers are the first people to spot a potential problem in the life of someone who doesn't have the resources to solve it for themselves.

With the backing of a great team, you could help to make an older person's life easier and more rewarding.

What can Bluebird Care offer you?

- Time to provide real care, and to get to know your customers - there is no such thing as a 15 minute visit!
- ALL working time paid! Contact, travel AND waiting time is paid at our hourly rate.
- Paid mileage
- Excellent rates of pay
- Local rounds with short distances to travel.
Regular, paid team meetings for each team of carers.
