The first step in seeking help for yourself or a loved one is to create a Mycare listing. Follow these simple steps and you’ll have a great ad ready to go in no time:
What do you need?
To find the right person, start by writing down the different things you want help with. By doing this, it will:
- Help you figure out what you need and the sort of helper you’re looking for
- Describe the skills and experience a worker needs for the role
- Set clear expectations around duties and relationships.
You might find you have a list of around 10-20 pretty detailed activities. Once you’ve got a master list of the things you need help with, group them into 5-10 general points. This will help you to fill out your job listing.
Keep your list simple and straightforward. Describe the services you're looking for and the skills your worker need. An example of a required skill might be: a full driver’s licence/experienced driver; experience using a hoist; knowledge of how to bath and dress a client safely.
Time to create your listing
Once you’re clear on what you need, you’re ready to create your listing at Mycare. We've added hints to the jobs listings so it's easier to fill in.
A listing at Mycare must be accurate and non-discriminatory. That means you shouldn't use language that could be interpreted as seeking someone of a particular age, gender or race.
To be on the safe side you should be mindful of requirements related to a person’s:
- physical appearance, e.g. hair colour or skin colour
