There are many advantages to live-in care jobs

You can know that your client has a much higher quality of life because of you. Even better, the quality of your life is better too. You get paid well, receive regular training and you get a week, or two weeks off at a time as you will likely alternate the job with another person. You can even save on household bills at home whilst you stay with your client in their home during working days.

The benefits of being a live-in carer apply to both the carer and the client, and even the wider community as care in the home relieves the pressure on NHS bed blocking, often a result of a lack of adequate care provision.
