Elderly Befrienders - Make a real difference everyday!

  • Dartford, UK
  • Part-time
  • Date Advert Closes: 05 December 2021

Company Description

Home Instead Dartford was set up by Ram Chandra Thapa as part of the national Home Instead family.

For us, home care means keeping people where they are the happiest - in their own homes, surrounded by their memories in their own environment. It means treating our clients as we would treat our own loved ones. It means giving our CAREGivers the training and the support that they need to provide only the highest quality of care that focuses on companionship and not the task. Our helping hands are available whenever you need them. Each care solution is unique. Support can range from: assistance with shopping trips, providing companionship, escorting to appointments or social engagements, home help, meal preparation, personal care, support with medication and much, much more.

And if you still have questions about what we can do for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’ll do everything we can to give you peace of mind.

The best way to describe the service you’ll receive is that it will be as we would want our loved ones to be treated. And that’s a promise.

For you it’s a choice; for us it’s personal.
