Janet Antunes

Right At Home Staff Testimonials, Carers, Ireland

Originally from Malawi, Janet (39) moved to Dublin four years ago. In Malawi, she had her own business but used her move to Ireland to change career and began working with Right at Home as a home carer three years ago.

“I try to treat my clients in the same way as I would treat my own parents, and I really enjoy chatting to them and hearing about their lives. I’ve been honoured to be with some of my clients, holding their hands, at the end of their lives. It’s a very rewarding and flexible job. I wouldn’t change it for the world." — Janet Antunes, Home Carer, Right at Home

Niall Cronin

Carer Ireland, Homecare Assistant, Staff Testimonial

Niall (54) returned to education to study healthcare after a 31-year career as jet engine mechanic with Lufthansa. He has worked at a home carer with Right at Home for nearly a year. 

"I like meeting people and giving something back to the community. After 31 years as a jet engine mechanic, home care was a very different career, but I feel like I’m doing something positive. As a home carer, it’s important to be understanding and accept people as they are. At first, it can feel very strange for our clients and their families to have somebody calling in during the day, but you over time you get to know each other and build trust." — Niall Cronin, Home Carer, Right at Home

Homecare Assistant Duties

Typical duties of a Homecare Assistant include companionship, personal care, running errands, meal preparation, shopping, light housekeeping and gardening, Alzheimer's care and respite care.

As a Homecare Assistant, you will be expected to work with clients, rather than for them. You will encourage them to regain their confidence, while also promoting their self-respect and dignity. At all times, you will provide the very highest standards of care respect and confidentiality.

Care shifts are flexible, taking place from early morning through to the evenings as well as weekends and public holidays.
