Are you an experienced support worker looking for a new challenge? Would you like to provide care in the client’s own home and offer a more personal service? If so, Active Assistance may have the role for you. We are currently recruiting flexible care assistants to work with our client in Kidderminster. Our client lives in his own home with his family. He requires 24/7 support from a dedicated team of flexible care assistants to enable him to live a fulfilling and independent life. At Active Assistance your job title will be ‘Personal Assistant’ which is what sets us aside from other care companies. You will work with one client, providing tailored support which means you will get to know him and his needs very well.

We are recruiting flexible care assistants to join our current team. Our client is a 23 year old male who has a neurological degenerative disorder. He is in a wheelchair and also has complex care needs such as a PEG and tracheostomy. The role will be 2:1 for day shifts and will involve hoisting, personal care and regular clinical checks. While applicants with experience will be favourable, we are mostly interested in someone who is passionate and reliable.

We also have a Refer a Friend scheme so if you like working for us and want others you know to get in on the action, you will be paid for spreading the word!

Active Assistance is an award winning care provider supporting individuals with complex and continuing health care needs. Our philosophy is based on the principle that each client is unique and our services provide tailored support covering complex clinical conditions.
