If your regular worker is taking a break over the Christmas period, there are plenty of other workers on Better Caring who are available to provide support for you while they’re away. In addition, many workers on Better Caring have networks of ‘buddies’ to cover for them, whom they can recommend. Or you can also jump online and either Post a Job or search for the right match. At Christmas it’s more important than ever to find a worker who is not only flexible, but also shares your values and sense of fun.
What will you be getting up to with your worker this Christmas? To inspire you, we’ve listed the most popular requests around this time of year:
Leading up to Christmas, you might find it difficult to spend enough time with your loved one. There’s no reason why you can’t book a worker to spend some time with your loved one, either at home or on an outing. For kids, this could mean a trip to an accessible playground or the local cinema. There are several kids’ movies airing over the school holidays, including Wonder and Paddington 2.
If you get a worker in to help with meal planning and grocery shopping, why not ask them to help you plan at least one Christmas meal or even take you to the local Westfield to tackle some gift shopping?
We talk quite a lot about technology and obviously we’re big fans. With new players like Amazon now in Australia, there’s no time like the present to get familiar with online shopping. Hire a worker who can help you get more tech-savvy.
A worker could also help you with wrapping presents, decorating the house and organising some Christmas cards for family and friends.
Lastly, if there are people or places you want to visit, you can always book someone for some company and a transport service. Clients have booked workers through the Better Caring platform to attend a Christmas party or even Midnight Mass.
