As a care at home support worker you may be expected to help with people’s personal care, support with medication and meal preparation along with a variety of other tasks. Previous care experience is desirable. However, if you don’t have experience you will need to demonstrate some customer service skills as a basis to build on. This includes excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, with a good understanding of English.

The desire and commitment to support others and to deliver the highest level of care is vital.
