Ensuring they're settled in their homes might include performing tasks such as making them a cup of tea, helping them around the house for a short period of time or calling a loved one to inform them that they're home safe. You will be expected to complete light admin whilst on shift such as inputting information on the computer system after each drop-off and checking records are correct as well as any additional duties given by management.
