The rewards of being an Angelcare domicillary carer

Being an Angelcare domiciliary care worker primarily provides support to individuals who still wish to maintain as much independence as possible by being able to live in their own home

The client will need help with day to day tasks such as personal care, household jobs or any other activity that allows them to remain in their home.

As well as house hold tasks there may also be the requirement to accompany the client to the doctors or on hospital / clinic visits. It is not unusual for our care workers to work night shifts as some clients require around the clock support.

Become a Volunteer Angel

Become a volunteer Angel We are currently seeking expressions of interest from people who would consider joining our volunteer Angel scheme.

The Purpose

The volunteer scheme is going to be set up and targeted at our current client base. We look after people who live all over calderdale, many of which are housebound and have very little contact with people apart from the carers that visit.

As most people will be aware of central government cuts, long gone are the days of the local authority paying us to solely spend social time with clients. This is where you come in!

We are looking for a small number of volunteers to visit the most lonely and isolated people in our local area. You will visit a number of our clients on a regular basis to get to know them and do your bit to end loneliness and isolation in our local community.

This services is usually referred to as befriending, there are many charities that run services like this across the country. One of the main reasons that makes our scheme different is that we have access to a different customer base than other charities. The people you will be matched too, most will be house bound and possibly bed bound, making it near on impossible for them to feel fully included in the local community. There are many other types of luncheon clubs, activity clubs, centres and cafes run locally, however they target those that can get out of the house.

What's in it for you?

  • Make a difference to someone's live
  • Make new friends
  • Cure your own loneliness as well as others at the same time
  • Get a sense of fulfilment in your own life
  • Mileage is paid between visits.

Frequently asked questions from new employees

How long will my training take?

Our training runs daily from 10.00 - 14.00. To complete your training it will take between 7 and 9 days and in some cases longer. The reason for the huge variance is down to the individual we are training, we all learn at different paces and, as an organisation we have to be sure that you have all the knowledge and skills, to be able to undertake your role in a safe and confident manor.

Once my training is complete, what happens next?

Once training has been completed, presuming all your other checks have come back fine (references & DBS), you will undertake 'Shadowing' this is where you pair up with an experienced worker, you will go on client visits with them to witness the care provided in practice, you will be asked to undertake tasks at the visits, these will usually be smaller tasks, while you build knowledge and skills. There isn't a definitive amount of hours for shadowing. As a rough rule it will be a minimum of 8 hours, you won't be expected to work alone until we and yourself feel you are safe to do so.
