The Curamcare.com website has been updated this week. Have a look and tell us what you think. New features are as follows:
1. New improved descriptions of carers
2. Post a job
Clients searching for care workers can put in their postcode and search directly or fill in the details of the work required, and the platform will find the best local matches for you.
If you are a care worker thinking of signing up, you can see examples of jobs advertised on the jobs board on the carers page of the site. Average hourly rate is £15 an hour.
We have three affiliate partners signed up - you will see their logos on the home page. Walking with the Wounded, Surewise and Thankacarer. We will have more information on the positive impact this will have for care workers using the site in due course.
Increasing numbers of clients are now using the site and both they and their care workers are finding the experience positive:
"I would like to thank you so much for what Curam has done for me. I now have an insight into how stretched the care system is and how overwhelming it can get for the family... and Curam provided me that positive sense of support and hope during this difficult time. I strongly recommend Curamcare: I have met wonderful, professional and helpful carers." Client Naz C
“This is how it should be. If people are paying for a service they should be allowed to be selective, especially with their carers” Client Angela P
“What a very good idea” Carer Maggie C
“What a fantastic idea, as a carer myself for many years I know how important one to one care is” Carer Debby P
Top tip for care workers – did you know you can allow us to view your basic DBS certificate online for free? (for enhanced DBS there is a £13 annual charge) Create an online account with the DBS – freephone 03000200190 – and create a consent code for Curamcare to use. You can also use this service if you can’t find your certificate right now.
