What does a visiting carer do?

A carer is someone that provides support to someone who needs help because of their illness. This could be from an unpaid carer such as a family member, friend or partner or a paid carer who is hired to provide support.

As a visiting home carer, you can help in many different ways to help make life easier for someone living with a disability, injury or illness. Working in a small team, you’ll look after your regular clients and care for people in their own homes, administer medication, help with mobility and provide personal care such as washing, dressing and using the toilet. But you’ll also help out around the home – such as helping with cleaning and cooking or errands such as picking up prescriptions or doing their food shopping.

The role of a visiting carer is flexible and varied and can be tailored to a person’s individual needs – therefore the amount of care provided can be flexible too from a couple of hours a week to several hours a day.

Why do carers choose this career?

Carers live up to their name, they care, that is why they choose to take on this incredible role to support people who need additional help. Many people find it rewarding to meet and build a relationship with someone and provide the care that they need to feel comfortable and content.

Where possible, a carer will try to promote independence rather than doing everything for someone. Having independence is important to many people and having that encouragement and support to do things yourself where you can is rewarding for both parties.

A carer has a duty of care to ensure the person they look after feels safe, comfortable and content. They are there to provide practical and emotional support and help in whatever way they can. Dignity and respect is at the forefront of their care.
