You would be responsible for meeting the support requirements of our customers, in a way that respects the individual and promotes their independence. You would be expected to travel to the customer’s home and assist them with daily tasks as agreed between the customer and Caremark.
The type of support that you would be providing is no different to what would reasonably be given by a member of the person’s family. For instance, you may be providing help with bathing and dressing or domestic support.
Your role would include helping customers with tasks such as:
- Help with washing & dressing
- Shopping & meal preparation
- Prompting with medication
- Support with daily routines
- Respite services
- Socialising and leisure activities
- Helping customers access the community

For home care workers seeking rewarding work in Winchester, Eastleigh and Chandlers Ford, Caremark offers excellent pay from £12.10 per hour with £1 extra per hour at the weekend. There is no ‘starter rate’ hidden in the small print – £12.10 is the hourly rate at which ALL new carers are paid. Caremark will quickly enroll you on the Level 2 Diploma in Health & Social Care and, on successful completion (six months or less?), your hourly rate will rise to £12.30 plus £1 extra per hour at the weekend. Should you have already achieved the Level 2 Diploma, you will be paid £12.30 per hour after only three months with Caremark.
