Key to our success is that we are able to maintain a robust recruitment programme enabling us to retain and grow our team of high-calibre staff.

Our carers want more than a job.

They want to make a difference in the lives of those in their care.
All staff are carefully selected through a stringent recruitment process and only the most suitable, like-minded people are selected to ensure we continue to offer the best quality care that our clients deserve. All our Care workers are vetted through Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) for your safety and they are highly trained. Each carer goes through a comprehensive training and orientation process that guides them through our values and standards; going above and beyond the national legal requirements for carer induction training.

Our in-house Personal Development Programme provides carers with all the support they need to carry out a job that can be very emotionally challenging. As well as regular supervision and office support, it identifies both ongoing and specialised training needs, to ensure that our carers understand the high standards of care expected by Right at Home.

Because of my active role in tending to my father during his last days, I possess an innate inclination to support the elderly and susceptible, thereby enriching the progress of my community. The privilege of being welcomed into numerous households, encountering diverse families, and providing care for a wide array of individuals remains a source of ongoing honor for me. This experience has fueled my dedication to fostering the well-being of those in need, promoting communal growth, and forging meaningful connections with people from all walks of life. Each interaction solidifies my commitment to making a positive impact by extending compassion and aid, a sentiment that stems from the profound fulfillment derived from my participation in my father’s final journey.
