Profile:
I have worked in the Education Sector for 20 years, 17 of those in secondary schools, moving on to the sales of private tutoring packages. Unfortunately, just before the Covid crisis I was made redundant and my new job was unable to give me a start date. Not comfortable with doing nothing, I saw an advert asking for "no time wasters - domiciliary carers needed urgently". Within the hour I was at the LPC office completing application paperwork and collecting training materials. Two months later, my original new job is due to start, but I do not want to leave caring, so I plan to juggle the two.

To have the ability to make someone's life that little bit easier, to help them feel a little less lonely, and to show that they really are a valued member of society and cared for is very special and definitely appreciated. It is true to say that the job is very worthwhile and rewarding if you want to make a difference in the community.

We offer a comprehensive range of services personalised to the needs of our service users. We provide a flexible responsive, caring service and strive to build long-term relationships with our Service Users and other working professionals. We know the solid foundation to success is to build quality.

Looking at the options for care funding can be a daunting and complex experience. Care and support services are means-tested, not free to everyone & some people have to pay all of the costs. There are several options for funding care. LPC undertake care from service users with local authority funding.

We have a rigorous and selective recruitment programme to help us evaluate the individual who applies to work at LPC, as well as finding out about their qualifications and skills. The right attitude and compassion for the job is vital for us in securing the right team. DBS checks and references will be obtained.
