Home Care Assistants
We work hard to ensure all of our clients receive the best possible level of care. We do this by selecting only the best Care Assistants we can find.
We Value Our Care Assistants
Melody Care attracts the best Care Assistants in Surrey & Hampshire because it pays more generously than any other Agency in the area. We are proud to say that on average our Care Assistants will earn nearly 50% more than the national minimum wage and 30% more than the “Living Wage”. In 2015 we were awarded membership of the Living Wage Foundation in recognition of our commitment to paying all our staff at least the Living Wage.
On top of that we also pay the most generous travel allowances as all of our carers use their own vehicles to drive from client to client. Fuel is expensive and it does not seem fair that they should not be properly reimbursed for the miles they do. Our Care Assistants appreciate what we do to try and look after them whilst they are looking after our clients. Consequently, once a Care Assistant is accepted into the Melody Care fold they tend to stay with us for the duration. This means we can provide a much better and more continuous service to our clients than most.
Gestures of gratitude for our carers
We really value all our Care Assistants and regard them as very special people indeed. The kind of people we would want to care for our own parents or grandparents. We always wish them a Happy Birthday when that time of year comes around and pay them a small "Birthday Bonus" - not a fortune but a gesture that tells them we care. We only want the best for our clients and so we only seek to recruit the best.
