Visiting Care Roles: Becoming A Bright Carer
If you would like to be part of something really special by bringing joy and purpose into elderly people’s lives, we would love to welcome you into the Bright Care family.
As a visiting Bright Carer, you’ll work side by side with your client in their home to provide care and companionship. Our longer visits mean you’re there for those little moments, like reading the papers, crafting or drinking tea in the garden, ultimately building and nurturing relationships that will last for life.

As a member of our extended family, you’ll work in a small team to look after your regular clients. We aim for a minimum of a two-hour visit and during this time, you’ll be:
- Assisting with personal care, such as getting up, washing, dressing, and toileting.
- Helping with light housekeeping, such as cleaning, laundry, cooking.
- Going on outings (grocery shopping, social events, hospital appointments, where appropriate in line with government advice).
- Providing friendly and ongoing companionship.
- Assisting with medications, or picking up prescriptions.
- Writing daily reports.
