Do You Work As An Hourly Carer? There May Be A More Rewarding Option

Live in care jobs \ Private Home Carer For Elderly

Are you an experienced hourly carer? Or are you thinking of changing your career to care? Either way you may have noticed there isn't a shortage of care jobs available in the UK, however it is important to have a job you enjoy and one that gives you job satisfaction.

I want to talk to you about how working as a 'live-in Carer' differed from working as an hourly carer. Quite often with hourly care roles you are restricted to a small amount of time where you struggle to complete all that is required of you in the time given. This could then lead to feeling bad as you are often rushed, but would still like to be able to walk away knowing you have done the job well and to your full potential. All of this can impact on mental wellbeing and feelings of un-accomplished tasks within your role.

Exploring live-in care jobs opens up opportunities to spend extended periods with your clients, fostering a deeper connection. Many of our carers are warmly embraced by clients and their families, evolving into treasured friends. The essence of live-in care lies in temporarily residing with your client, offering care and support without the constraints of time. This unique approach allows you to provide comprehensive assistance, tailored to their conditions, enhancing their quality of life, and becoming a genuine companion. The fulfilment derived from knowing you have ample time to excel in your role while enabling your client to reside comfortably in their own home with the necessary care is truly rewarding.

Here are just some examples of what your live-in care role may involve:

  • Cooking home cooked nutritious meals for you and your client

  • Helping your client with their medication

  • Accompanying your client to social events - no longer will they have to miss their favourite afternoon activity due to hourly care limitations and availability

  • Providing your client with companionship and friendship

  • Giving the time to your client to help them complete tasks

Would you like to be able to give more time to your client? Would you like a job which is rewarding and gives you job satisfaction in knowing you have completed your job to the best of your ability? If so, live-in care is for you!
