Reasons to choose Home Care Heroes
Choose your own hours, clients and type of work.
Build relationships and make a real difference.
We have a vibrant community and culture, we host cool events and link you with like-minded people.
It's FREE to list your profile with Home Care Heroes! Heroes are an elite bunch of extraordinary people and we won't let anyone call themselves a Hero. We verify applicants to see if you have the qualities, values and personality to call yourself a Hero! To do this we go through a screening process including an online test and face to face interview.
Once you have been accepted we will advertise and promote your profile with people in need so that you can make direct connections with clients, increasing opportunities for you to find work.

'Home Care Heroes opens up amazing opportunities for me to be able to use the things that I have been blessed and gifted with to make a difference in someone else's life. There is a need out there that needs to be met by those in the community, and it can be met by ordinary people like you and me. It's highly rewarding work!'

'My first job with homecare heroes was working with someone who has down syndrome. I was really nervous as it was the first ever companion/assistance type of job I had ever done although it turned out to be great. Working with someone over 5 months creates a friendship and we helped each other everyday. I would help him with his daily morning routine to get to work on time and he would teach me the way he likes his sandwiches and all the things that come with companion/ assistance work. It has been a wonderful, fulfilling experience.'

'For me, it has been a great experience to become a Home Care Hero. I have met extraordinary people with big challenges in their life and great courage to overcome them. My clients have given me a new perspective of life and have made me appreciate everything in my life, especially my family and my health. I encourage you to try, you'll connect with amazing people and will feel blessed'

WHAT KIND OF WORK DO HEROES DO?
Light Gardening, Tea & Good Conversation!
'I enjoy conversation and have a good sense of humour. I like to talk about politics and history. If you're interested in what Sydney was like 80 years ago I'd be happy to share my memories. My passion is my garden and would enjoy someone to help me keep it in good condition. You don't have to be a labourer, just someone who could help plant flowers, rake leaves, water and maybe make a good cup of tea.'
Social evenings & dog walking together
'We're looking for someone who would be interested in socialising in the evenings from 7:00 - 9:00PM. It would be great if we could go to the library or bookstore or play board games at our home. You would also go with me on a short walk with my dog Max to the local park or simply down the street (Max is a very fluffy little poodle!).'
