What does the role of a live-in carer involve?

As a live-in carer, you will live with your client in their own home for a minimum of 2 weeks at a time. You will be a companion to them and support with various aspects of their daily routine, as well as working with colleagues and external agencies to provide a person-centred and holistic approach to client care.

This may include home help, personal care support, cooking, medication administration, support with organising and attending medical appointments and accompanying clients on outings.

Our vision is to enable people to continue to live independently within the comfort of their own home and help them to feel empowered to live the life that they wish to, feeling safe and happy.
