At Q Care we respect and value our staff and that is why many of our Care Assistants having been with us for over 7 years. This is because we know that working as a Care Assistant is such an important role in the local community – it is because of you that the people we support start and end the day with a smile on their face.

Why we stand out:

What makes us stand out is how we support our Care Assistants.  We appreciate our Care Assistants and we never forget to acknowledge the amazing work you do in your community.

We stay in touch and understand our staff better than most because everyone in our office delivers care as well – it is important to lead by example and for us to understand the needs of our customers and our Care Assistants.

We have a strong family dynamic in the office and a super friendly team. As we are centrally located in Cardiff (next to lots of helpful shops) our Care Assistants are always popping whether that be to have a catch up and a cuppa (maybe some cake!) or to speak with our manager, we have an open door policy and a good sense of humour.

We invest in our Care Assistants, this means that if you don’t have a car and you want to do community care, then don’t worry. We have fully insured cars available for you to use at no extra cost!

We want our staff to feel valued and respected so we always make sure all positive feedback from our clients are communicated with you, we send birthday cards & Xmas cards every year with shopping vouchers and of course we make sure you get an Easter Egg!

What we do:

The people we support mean a lot to us and the way we support them is by providing a little bit of extra help in the community on a daily basis. This includes companionship, food preparation, help with medication, trips out, helping people start their day and being a friendly face to have a cup of tea with and share stories – just like you would with your own family.

Our focus is on what we can do to make sure someone enjoys each day as much as possible.
