I am happy to be part of this team and to provide more quality of life to older people and to have support from the administrative staff and my supervisors in the search for excellent service. I recommend the company for having flexibility and training in the area.

Working for Be Independent Home Care is very rewarding. Be Independent Home Care are playing an important role in ensuring the safety and independence of clients in their homes, particularly during the current challenging Covid-related times. I have found that the management and office team are approachable, supportive and reliable. Communication has been exceptional. Be Independent Home Care is client focused. The role of an assigned care supervisor is significant and provides support for the care assistant and a great avenue for communication with clients and their families. I would highly recommend working for Be Independent Home Care.

I have been employed with Be Independent since March of this year. This was a total change of career for me, having worked with my previous employer for over thirty years. I also could not have commenced my new career at a more difficult time, just at the start of the initial lockdown. To say the prospect was daunting is putting it mildly. However, I cannot praise the Company, management and all the staff highly enough. The training was first class and the patience, consideration and kindness is not just reserved for the clients but staff also. You have great backup, assistance and support at all times. You always feel an integral part of the team with your opinion sought and respected. Obviously in these difficult times the safety and well-being of clients and staff is paramount and this is consistently emphasised. The management genuinely appear to care for their staff which is very refreshing. You are not just a number. They are hands on and always just at the end of a phone call. The job is at times challenging but very personally rewarding. You come to the end of your day knowing you have made a difference.
Pros
Flexible Schedule
Cons
Challenging work

I have been working for Be Independent for over four years. Compared to other home care companies I've worked for, Be Independent is by far the company that values its employees most. We are fairly paid, they offer continuous training with paid hours. In addition, the company cares about the mental health and well-being of its employees as we have the Free Employee Assistance Programme - a 24/7 service that offers psychological support and is completely confidential. The relations between care assistants, managers and office staff are pleasant and respectful, I am always introduced personally to new clients and hours are offered according to my availability.

Since joining Be Independent Homecare 2 years ago i found this company to be an excellent place to work. The management and support from the company has been second to none from the very moment I started working here. They always put their care team and clients safety first. They provide excellent advice and continually offer courses to continue improving our service. They are Understanding, kind, Friendly and very attentive about your concerns whatever they may be. Since working with them I have gone from strenght to strenght and boosted my confidence with work hugely. I couldn't reccommend this company enough to work for.

I am working for Beindependent homecare a few years now and I can honestly say they are such a pleasure to work with.Being a Care assistant in the community is such a hard and rewarding job, Beindependent homecare make it easy to travel between clients as the distance is never too far.There is always the oppertunity to learn more and add to your skills as there is always new courses and training offered.If you have any problems with your working hours the girls in the office are always so kind and will do their best to help you out, Care managers/Client care co-ordinators are just at the end of the phone if you have any worries and they will always keep in contact.Beindependent really do care about their staff and clients and it shows especially working through Covid 19 they are making sure all staff and clients are safe and are providing carers with all necessary PPE required.In the years i have worked for this company I have never had any problems with them, I really do enjoy working for such a great company and I always feel as if i have a great team behind me.

I worked at Be Independent for almost a year and found the job to be highly rewarding and satisfying. The managers were always on call to answer any work queries by phone or email. All relevant training was provided free of charge by the company and the learning was hands on so I felt fully competent walking into any new client's home. I would recommend Be Independent to any health care assistant as the hours are flexible, the pay competitive and it offers continuous training.
