Day in the life of a Carer

Stories from our Carers

Our wonderful carers really are the backbone of Helping Hands. Each individual has a different story to tell, a different calling to be a carer, but they all share the same determination to be the best in the business.

Are you considering making a real difference and becoming a Helping Hands Carer? Care work can be challenging and rewarding in equal measure. Supporting a customer in their own home is hard work, but is also a vocation guaranteed to provide new experiences – no two days are ever the same. If you’re considering taking the next step and applying through our jobs page, you may want to learn what other Carers have thought about their time with their customers.

“Live-in Carer Jo has worked for Helping Hands since March last year. “It’s been a dream,” she explains. “I’ve been really well supported from the start – especially coming from New Zealand and living in an unfamiliar country.”
“As a Live-in Carer, Jo works closely with Kathleen every day, so is able to see first-hand the positive impact her assistance has on Kathleen’s life. It is extremely satisfying for Jo to see all of her hard work and dedication paying off.”
