The Service

Due to the continuing expansion of our service in the Perth area, we are recruiting Support Workers to join our team.

Perth Homecare Services provide personal care; housing support and therapeutic visits to people in their own homes, most of whom are elderly. The outreach service users may have learning/physical disabilities/ mental health issues and require support with anything from personal care to attending appointments. 

Duties include assisting/supporting clients with personal care, moving and handling (including use of hoists/equipment), household tasks, shopping, cooking, meal preparation and administration of medication. Previous experience in the care sector is desirable but not essential.

Support and care is provided 7 days a week. There are various shift patterns between the hours of 7am and 10.30pm which may include split shifts depending on the support needed; 8 hours shifts and possibly nightshifts (which will attract an enhanced payment).

Internal candidates – please note that all employees must complete their probationary period before being considered for an alternative role.
