Working with the Bunbury Agency
As an independent and private family-run home care agency, we have now been helping families for almost 50 years. Our longevity and success is largely attributed to our invaluable team of carers who look after our clients with the dignity, respect and understanding that they deserve. We know that our live in clients benefit from their regular carers and that our daily clients want more than ‘pop in – pop out’ home visits.
Our carers are the backbone to our service but being a carer can be hard work and stressful. If you join our team of wonderfully dedicated carers and companions, you can be assured we will look after you too.
Become a Bunbury Carer
Live in Care
Carers usually go to 2-3 clients for a week at a time but no longer than a fortnight. Each client has 3-4 carers ensuring that you can schedule your availability around your daily life, giving you time for family, appointments and holidays. Your wage reflects the level of care required and additional support is provided to ensure your have regular breaks. We are always very conscious that our carers should not be overworked and become too tired.
Most clients need help in the morning and evening, but some require extra visits during the day or an overnight. There is a minimum call of 1 hour as it is important not to rush. We want you to give your client the best of your skills and have time for a chit chat over a cup of tea. You might share your client list with another carer, but unless there is an emergency you will always be booked with your regular clients enabling you to maintain the relationship with them.
What our carers say…
“It took me a while to have the confidence to give up my permanent job, but I am glad I did. I now work to suit my lifestyle, and enjoy looking after the clients Bunbury provide me with. I would highly recommend anyone who passionately believes that elderly people should remain living in their own homes, to register with Bunbury. They treat their carers as they treat their clients with kindness, understanding and compassion.”
