Silver Chain home help.

Does anyone work for silver chain doing home help? I’ve tried asking silver chain myself but staff haven’t been helpful. Does the role include showering clients? This is the only aspect I’m not keen on doing as I’m tiny and I’m scared of someone slipping in the shower if they are a bigger person than me. Is there any advice you could give me to get myself a job with silver chain or similar company offering help to the elderly. Thanks.

Most people will use a shower chair. The most you will need to do is help them in and put of it. I have them put on rubber sole slippers to get in and out of the tub/chair. Makes a world of difference

 I do home care but not for chain

No their home help/donestic assistance is separate to the client care.
