Care Assistant – South Sheffield
Intercare provides high-quality homecare services to people living in many localities in Sheffield. We believe everyone should be able to lead a full and healthy life regardless of age or ailments.
What does high quality mean?
Quite simply, effective home care is more than just helping with the daily routine. Our Care Workers give continuity in personal relationships, support with personal care and domestic tasks, but also offer wider support such as making GP or other appointments and helping at those appointments if needed.
We can do this because we are part of the Primary Care Sheffield group, owned by the GPs of Sheffield, with a social purpose; care comes before profit. We are all about people – the best Carers give the best service and have the best job satisfaction at the end of each day.
We are approved by Sheffield City Council to provide homecare services and are rated as Good in all areas by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
We take care to match Care Workers to service users they can get on with, matching shared interests and personalities. We are always keen to add the right people to our team. Even if you never thought of yourself as a Care Worker, this could well be the right move for you – let us show you what a great job it can be!
