Abicare is a home care services agency providing highly-trained home carers across Swindon including live-in care and visiting care services to those living in their own homes. We believe in providing high-quality care where people are looked after with dignity and respect. Kindness is what care is all about, so first and foremost, we carefully choose our staff for their kind and compassionate nature. We aim to care, nurture and enrich the lives of all in our staff, clients and family members.

Home Care Assistants are often the first point of contact for a client, so you'll need to be friendly and confident, with good interpersonal skills. You'll need to be able to put clients at ease, helping them with their personal care while making sure they feel comfortable.

The Ideal Candidate

A good carer is simply someone who truly cares - they do the job because they know they can make a difference to an individual’s life, injecting some humour into a day, helping with small chores that improve clients’ quality of life, providing reassurance where confidence is low and lifting morale during those lonely moments. Good carers love what they do and go that extra mile, noticing those little extras that enhance your life.

  • The ability to prepare simple meals and follow good standards of hygiene
  • Flexibility to work unsocial hours, you must be able to work alternate weekends
