Are you thinking of starting a career which focusses on compassion towards others, kindness, and one that truly makes a difference in your community? Then we think Live-in Care might be the right career path for you!
Live-in care work gives you the chance to make a big difference to your clients enabling them to carry on living an independent life, following their own routines, and enjoying hobbies - all in the comfort of their own home. Their routine is more flexible, which means every day will be different and you both can enjoy doing things together as your client wishes - having a creative and problem-solving mind is a bonus as it will help you overcome any obstacles.
Over 18% of the UK population is over the age of 65, and it's growing yearly, which means carers are in demand more than ever. Without a shortage of jobs, becoming a self-employed Live-in Carer has many benefits such as:
Choosing when you work
Choosing where you work
Choosing how much you earn (we will guide you)
Working with a friendly office team who provide you with excellent customer service
Fun competition, days, celebrations throughout the year
24/7 support just a phone call away, in case of emergency
Your job as a Live-in Carer will be to help your client remain independent, safe, comfortable, and dignified in the comfort of their own home. You will live with your client for the duration of your booking, and help them with daily tasks and any other requirements they might have. Some of the things you will be assisting with are:
Helping the client wash and dress
Cooking and feeding if needed
Medication administration and organisation
Cleaning and chores
Looking after pets
Helping with getting to and from appointments and social events
Complex care needs
Most importantly, you will be your clients companion - keeping them company, watching TV together, reading books, enjoying hobbies. We try and match our carers and clients hobbies and interests so you have a lot in common.
Live-in Care can truly change a person's life, and its an incredibly rewarding job.
