You will get all the benefits of a permanent worker along with the flexibility and choice that comes with agency work!

Retain Healthcare was developed from a family run business which has been running for more than 30 years, providing a high quality service to customers and supporting our staff through learning and development. Our ethos is for continuous learning and includes four key points:

• Retaining - Quality
• Retaining - Independence

Supporting those we care for to get up in the mornings and get ready for the day, including:

• Getting washed and dressed
• Assisting with mobility through hoists and stand aids
• Provide personal care where required such as assisting to the toilet
• Providing companionship such as going out into the community to go shopping or to appointments. But also being there to provide emotional support throughout the day, and taking part in activities they enjoy
