​Care & Support Workers - Clapton, London

We are freezing recruitment in London for the time being. Thank you to everyone who has applied for one or a number of our Teams in Clapton.

A new team is looking for new members to support a woman and enable her to remain part of the community in Clapton

What the Team Owner is looking for:

"I am looking for another member of the local community to join my team as a personal assistant for 2-5 hrs a week. My current team is based in neighbourhoods around Clapton Common and is made up of friends, family members, volunteers, local community members and care workers. This team focuses on my quality of life needs:

🍽️Preparing and cooking home-cooked meals

🛍️Doing shopping, housekeeping and laundry

🫂Staying connected to the local community and socialising with people

⛪Getting to and from St Thomas Church Mass on Wednesday mornings and Sunday mornings

💛Reflecting on my life's work, my passions, love and losses"

🌟About the Team Owner🌟

"I am an 84-year-old Jamaican woman who has been living in the UK since 1959. Since I was a child I have been caring and supporting others and serving the community in the UK and Jamaica. As a community leader, I have travelled and met and worked with some very interesting public figures and leaders both locally, nationally and internationally. I have some wonderful stories to tell about these experiences.

"For many years my home was a community hub and there was always food prepared and a pot on the stove in my home for people to enjoy. Healthy home-cooked food is one of my languages of love. I have had many professional roles over my life, including a dressmaker as a young teenager, a florist and a Pharmacist in the NHS for many years. As a lay preacher at St Thomas Church, I led Mass and funeral services. As a trained florist I also arranged the flowers at weddings, funerals and other community events. Due to long-term health conditions, the loss of my husband 6 years ago, the recent pandemic and a recent move away from my home of 40 years my life has changed dramatically. You will be joining a team that is focused on helping me to stay connected to the people, places and things that matter most to me during these challenging times."

We're on the lookout for female care and support workers to join a new care team in Clapton, providing connection and companionship to a London-born veteran

What the Team Owner is looking for:

"I am seeking a friendly and compassionate care worker for 2-4 hours a week to share stories, laughter, and support my independence. The team I am building will be about more about genuine connection, companionship and sharing memories and experiences than just getting care tasks done. 

"My new care and support worker needs to feel confident helping me wash and shower in a way that helps me overcome self-consciousness with supportive encouragement. I am seeking female care only. I am flexible about what time but would prefer visits in the evening after around 6pm."

🌟About the Team Owner🌟

"Hello, I'm a London-born veteran with a story to tell, and I'm on the lookout for a care and support worker who appreciates my unique journey through life and wants to get to know me over the course of my care. My experiences have shaped me, and I'm eager to connect with someone who is curious about my life and interested in being a friend, companion as well as a care worker. 

"Recently I have developed neuropathy in my legs and am consequentially becoming a lot less comfortable and able on my feet, particularly standing/using the shower independently. A the moment I am managing on my own but it is a struggle and I don't feel that safe doing this entirely on my own.  If you value kindness, genuine connection, and making a difference please make contact."
