Car owner essential.

We offer hours to suit family commitments, choose between 12 – 25 hours pw,  no personal care, no evening work, 20-25 days paid holiday (pro rata), contractual sick pay, travel allowance, fair mileage rate, competitive hourly rate, contributory pension scheme and job satisfaction guaranteed!

Here are some of the comments made by our Home Support Workers:

When I get home I feel that I have made someone else's life a little bit easier and just that bit nicer and that makes me smile.

I get to hear the most wonderful real life stories that no book can ever tell, sometimes a love story, sometimes a sad story but always a privilege.

Being a home help is not always about the housework or shopping it's about the friendships and smiles that are made.

I am proud to work for a team working towards the same goal and that is simply to help older people and their families within the community and no matter what your role is, however large or small Age UK Bedfordshire recognises the importance of being heard and that we all have a voice.

It's nice to know that you are helping people to stay in their own homes and that you are taking some of the pressure off family members and when they visit they can spend quality time together.

I smile when I see Brenda feeding the ducks, when she is buying chocolate, I smile when I see John chatting to his friends in Sainsburys, I smile when beds have freshly been made, working for Age UK Bedfordshire makes me smile.

IF YOU WANT TO SMILE AT THE END OF YOUR WORKING DAY, JOIN THE TEAM!
