Live-in Care Jobs

What sort of clients do you have?

Our live-in clients are a diverse group. We care for some people that need extra help due to old age and frailty, some who have had a stroke, or dementia. There are others who need help for a wide variety of illnesses or disabilities.

What would I earn as a live-in carer?

We always pay more than £600 per week to our live-in carers. The amount depends on the level of need of the client and is agreed before the placement starts.

What are you looking for in a carer?

Experience of care work is important for a live-in care position due to the unique nature of the role. We look for dedicated, caring, reliable and friendly people who will fit in with the ethos of the company.

How long do I live-in with a client?

The usual placement is two weeks on, two weeks off. We are flexible however, and will endeavour to fit in with your preferred work pattern. Some clients prefer permanent carers, and we do accommodate this as well.

Do you pay for travel?

Sometimes. It depends what we have agreed with the client, and how long your placement is. We will let you know before each placement what the situation is with that particular client.

Do I need my own car?

No – driving isn’t essential for our live-in carers.

What do I do about food?

Usually, our carers cook and eat with our clients. This is more social and cost-effective than cooking and eating separately. The clients usually pay for the food for both you and them, but if not, we pay an additional food allowance to cover your food costs.

How long do I have off per day?

You are entitled to at least two hours off per day. If you are on a long-term placement, you may have longer off one day a week. Because we also provide visiting care, when appropriate we provide visiting carers to ensure you can leave your client during your break.
