It takes a unique kind of person to become a professional Live-in carer. You need to have a compassionate nature, you must be able to work in a professional and discreet manner, and have to ensure that respect and dignity for the customer is maintained at all times. Above all, though, when you take on the role of a Live-in carer, you must be highly willing to make a positive difference to people’s lives.
What does a Live-in Carer do?
The aim of live-in care is to enable customers to be able to remain in their homes with as much independence as possible. You will be responsible for various tasks, including household management and personal care. You will typically be expected to carry out everyday jobs such as cleaning, cooking, washing and running errands, but you will also be delivering companionship to the person in your care – and this is often the most valuable form of support for those who are feeling isolated because of an illness or disability.
We can’t pretend that your role won’t be challenging at times, but the sense of fulfilment people gain from embarking on a career as a Live in Carer is often overwhelming. Caring for those in need is a truly rewarding experience.
To apply for a live in carer job with Independent People Homecare, you must meet the following criteria:
- You must be eligible to work in the United Kingdom
- You must be reliable and trustworthy
- You must have excellent communication skills, and a fluent understanding of verbal and written English
- You must be willing to live in a customer’s home in order to provide around-the-clock care
