Home care jobs

What does an hourly or overnight carer do?

The role can be very varied depending on your client’s needs. It may be in one role you are providing companionship, spending time with clients doing what they love best such as taking their beloved pet out for a walk. Other roles require more hands-on care for clients with more specific needs such as dementia, with duties including assistance with bathing and getting dressed.
