Live in carer - nationwide opportunities

£90-£115 per day 

If you want to build meaningful relationships and provide tailored support to your client, there's nowhere better than The Good Care Group.  As a Professional live-in Carer you will provide the very best care that enables your client to remain living in the place they love most, their own home.  

Why there’s nowhere better:

  • 5 days’ face to face training before your first placement
  • 24/7/365 support from our central team
  • A dedicated Care Manager who knows you and your client
  • All UK travel expenses covered whilst in placement
  • Free, confidential telephone line (Employer Assistance Programme) to support with any of the challenges life may bring
  • An online carer community to stay connected, share advice and best practice
  • We will support you with your SSSC registration, covering the registration cost for your first year
  • Support to achieve an SVQ2 in health and social care
  • Free PVG

Live-in carers live with a client for the duration of their chosen rota pattern (e.g 2, 4 or 6 weeks).  You’ll look after one person or at times a couple, providing both care and companionship.  Following a person centred care plan you will tailor your support to meet your clients’ needs,  assisting with daily activities, personal care, or support in managing specialist conditions such as dementia. 

It’s important that you have at least 6 months’ professional care experience; as a care assistant, live in carer, support worker or similar.

Your role will include:

  • Living with your client for a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 6 weeks at a time, depending on the rota pattern you choose
  • Following a client’s individual care plan you will generally provide a daily average of 10 hours care provision to your client
  • Managing medical conditions such as dementia, stroke and Parkinson’s
  • Moving and handling
  • Cooking, cleaning and ensuring the smooth running of the house
  • You will have Key Worker status, access to regular testing and PPE will be provided

We’re looking for:

  • A minimum 6 months’ professional care experience in any care setting, such as live-in carer, domiciliary carer, care assistant, support worker, healthcare assistant or similar
  • A driver’s licence is an advantage but not a requirement. The client provides the car and the insurance, for you to be able to drive you and your client for the occasional trip out or to go shopping
  • You must be flexible to travel to your client placement (UK travel expenses covered)
