Hear what Jessy & Shayaan have to say about working for Silver Chain Group

Working for Silver Chain is so rewarding, because when you are going to client houses it doesn’t seem like much to anybody else, but to them it means everything. I love that I am able to wake up in the morning and want to go to work. I get excited about seeing my clients and to see how their week has been and they were doing. – Jessy, Home Help

It’s by far one of the most rewarding jobs you could possibly do because you are making someone smile by honestly the simplest things – Shayaan, Care Aide
