Domiciliary care assistant job description

Domiciliary care assistants visit clients in their own home and support them to stay in their own community, rather than making the decision to move into a residential care home. Our clients will need support from a carer to assist with their day-to-day care needs as well as for companionship and trips out in the community.

Every day is different in home care. You might be supporting a client with their morning routine, getting up, washed and dressed for the day. Or you might be taking them to meet their friends at their local coffee shop. Your care will be tailored to each person you are looking after with an important focus on promoting independence and choice.

Your role as a domiciliary carer could include supporting with:

  • Personal care, being discreet and sensitive to your clients’ needs
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Managing and administering medication
  • Light housekeeping and gardening
  • Running errands and transportation to appointments or social events
  • Assisting with mobility in and around the home
  • Companionship and emotional support
  • Pet care
Our care assistant roles

Our minimum call time is one hour – we do not do fifteen or thirty minute calls, so you will have the time to care for your client. We have a variety of calls from mornings through to evenings, during the week and at weekends. Unlike many domiciliary care agencies who offer zero hours contracts, we offer our carers guaranteed hours. This means that each week you will be paid a guaranteed minimum amount of hours, regardless of the number of care calls you might have on your schedule. We will also pay you for the time you spend travelling between calls.

Continuity of care is important to us and our clients, so we try to schedule your shifts with the same clients each week, helping you to build trusting relationships and really get to know the people you are caring for.

In a similar way to our live-in carer roles, we will ensure you are equipped with the skills, knowledge and support required to be an exceptional care assistant, from the first day you join us. All of our carers join our induction training in London which covers topics such as client conditions, first aid, moving and handling, medication administration and safeguarding. You’ll also learn more about our ways of working and our online systems, as well as completing your care certificate during your first sixteen weeks of employment.

Our blended approach to learning involves face-to-face training, online learning, coaching and mentoring.
