Helping people live the best life they can at home isn’t just work, it’s life changing work. For older people, or those with life-debilitating conditions, there's nowhere better to live than in the comfort of their own home. Surrounded by their memories and supported by a live-in carer, every single client gets to live their very best life, in the place they love the most.

Join us as a live in carer and you will receive the very best in training and support from a team who are here for you 24/7, looking after you so that you can make a real difference to others.

For our carers, live-in care means that they only work in one household. Looking after one client or at times a couple. Our carers are, in effect, isolating themselves with their clients for the duration of their rotas, thereby minimising their exposure to COVID-19.

If you have experience of providing care in a professional capacity (in any social care setting) we'd love to hear from you.

There’s nowhere better because:

We offer a variety of live-in care roles in England and Scotland to suit your level of experience and lifestyle
5 days’ intensive training before your first placement
24/7/365 support from our central team
A dedicated care manager who knows you and your client
UK travel expenses covered whilst in placement
We pay according to skills and experience, not based on the client you work with.

Your role will include:

Managing medical conditions such as dementia, stroke and incontinence
Moving and handling
Cooking, cleaning and ensuring the smooth running of the house.
As a Professional carer you will have Key Worker status

We’re looking for:

Minimum 6 months’ professional care experience such as live-in carer, domiciliary carer, care assistant, support worker or personal healthcare assistant or similar social care experience
Experience of dementia care desirable
A driver’s licence is an advantage but not a requirement.

Our people are the reason we are able to deliver the very highest standards of care. We’re the only dedicated live-in care provider to receive an “Outstanding” rating in all 5 categories by the CQC in England; and a rating of “Excellent” for care and support by the Care Inspectorate in Scotland.
