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. You’ll have 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.
We are The Good Care Group. A provider of live-in care services across England and Scotland. We’re leading in our field and quality care is at the centre of everything we do. That’s why we’re the only dedicated live-in care provider to have been rated ‘Outstanding’ in all 5 categories that are assessed by the Care Quality Commission. We’ve also achieved ratings of ‘5’ and ‘6’ by the Care Inspectorate in Scotland.
Live-in Carers live 24/7 with our clients working on a rota basis, looking after one person or at times a couple. You’ll provide both care and companionship to your client - 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.
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
- Our pay rewards you for your skills and care experience, it’s not based on the client you work with
- 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
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
- 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)
