The Role

We are looking for a Care Assistant who understand it’s the little things that can make the biggest difference – making a difference together is at the heart of what we do.

As an Orwell Care Assistant, you’ll play a vital role in the lives of our customers, giving them the choice to stay in the comfort of their own homes and supporting them with everything they need to do to live well.

You will work mostly alone in someone’s home but will be part of a care team for the benefit and wellbeing of all the tenants who live at the service. No two days will be the same and you will receive the learning and development you need to thrive in Orwell.

  • personal care
  • medication administration
  • supporting people through temporary or terminal illness
  • helping with eating and drinking
  • light domestic duties such as bed making
  • support with social, physical activities and mental stimulation such as hobbies and recreation

All our customers ask is that you have the time to listen, you respect them, and you are understanding and patient.

About you:

You will be warm and friendly and have a natural caring nature, great sense of humour and a positive energy that brings a smile to people’s faces.

  • you are a great listener with a caring and supportive attitude
  • you want to make a difference every day
  • you focus on the individual and not the routine
  • you are warm and friendly and have a natural caring nature, great sense of humour and a positive energy that brings a smile to people’s faces
