Care Assistants play a vital role in helping individuals live with as much dignity and independence as possible by building strong and trusting relationships with them and assisting with everyday tasks such as cooking, cleaning and making conversation.


What does it entail

Day-to-day, you can expect to help clients with any number of things from getting dressed and maintaining good personal hygiene, cooking, cleaning, and monitoring their health and updating records. The clients you will be responsible for as a Rapid Care Assistant will likely need round-the-clock care, so there is plenty of opportunity for you to work flexibly. And the variety of clients, personalities and different care needs will always keep you on your toes and the job interesting.
