Caring, thoughtful and enjoy making somebody's day better? Does that sound like you? As a Colten Companion you'll be a listening ear and a friendly face helping our residents have the most enjoyable day possible at our home Castle View in Dorchester, Dorset.
Key Benefit: A genuine feeling of making a meaningful difference to the lives our residents.
What would your day look like?
Spending quality time with our residents, assisting with their day-to-day activities, ranging from writing postcards and going on day trips, to baking and painting, no two days are the same.
You'll be part of the resident's daily routine, coordinating activities to make sure everyone feels included, and being involved with any events is holding.

You'll be a caring and thoughtful individual, able to learn the preferences and differences of each of our residents so that every day is their best day.
Being a team player is an essential part of the role as well as having a can-do attitude to life.
