Clients will rely on you to listen carefully to what they need, take an interest in them and deliver excellent care. If you enjoy interacting with people and want to pursue an opportunity to make a difference , being a carer might be the career for you.
The central and most important part of a carers role with Major Oak Homecare is offering companionship and conversation. Each of our carers is matched to a client based on mutual interests and hobbies to encourage a strong relationship to develop. We believe you need this understanding and bond to be able to care for someone as if they were a member of your own family. Indeed, many of our carers do not have formal experience of working as a carer before they join our team, but have looked after a family member and want to make a difference to a person’s life by using the experience they have gained.
The four essentials!
The Mum Test – we treat our clients with dignity and respect, as we do our own family. We are interested in their lives and want to help them to remain living in their own homes where they feel happy and cosy.

Integrity – we do the right thing, not the easy thing. Building relationships are important. That’s why our visits are a minimum of one hour, so our support teams have time to care.
