A career in domiciliary care is ideal for a compassionate person who would like to help improve a client’s daily routine.

The Trust has been running a campaign called ‘Homecarers Care’ which shows the many benefits from working in domiciliary care. Many workers have enjoyed long-term, successful careers providing care in people’s homes.

Others have gained from the experience and benefited from development opportunities offered by the Trust.

Angela McVeigh, Director of Older People and Primary Care, launching her latest recruitment drive, says, “In the Southern Trust we are committed to promoting a better quality of life for every patient and client.

“In our area, thankfully we have an increasing number of older patients living longer and some of these with more complex needs.

“Domiciliary Care Workers can help provide end of life care, support our older population and clients with learning disabilities and physical disabilities to live with dignity, for as long as possible in their own homes where they want to be.
