To help people find their perfect personal assistants and help personal assistant’s find their perfect job Home Care Direct have a national free personal assistant database.

People we work with tell us that knowing who is coming into their home to provide their care is very important and being able to choose who their personal assistants are is key to great truly personalised services, which is why it is key to the Home Care Direct service.

Home Care Direct truly believes that individuals should have complete choice and control over the whole recruitment process of their personal assistants from start to finish.  The choice of who provides their care at home and becomes their personal assistants is totally up to the individual.  Whoever is chosen, Home Care Direct will employ the personal assistants on the client’s behalf.

Home Care Direct will thoroughly check the background of personal assistants (DBS, references etc.) and train them to meet the individual care needs of the person they are working with, to CQC standards, therefore, people who apply do not need to have any previous care experience.

Many of the people we work with already know someone they would like to have as their personal assistant and Home Care Direct employ them directly to work with that individual.  However not everyone knows someone they would choose to have as their personal assistant and when this is the case Home Care Direct can recruit specifically to find the perfect personal assistant for that person.

As part of this recruitment process we have created a personal assistant database which means if someone is interested in working as a personal assistant then they can register with us and we can hold their details and then try and match them with a client who needs care services at home. These potential personal assistants will them be put forward to the client who will still have full choice and control over choosing who their personal assistants will be.  This helps find the perfect match between personal assistants and clients!  In our experience matching the right personal assistants with individuals builds a strong and long lasting support team.  Therefore, we’ll help people find a personal assistant who meet their individual specific care needs, who have the right skills but who also have the right personality and outlook.

Our national personal assistant database means that we can keep personal assistants details on file and if a vacancy comes up in their area then we’ll get in touch to see if they’d be interested in the position.
