Overview of Live in Care Jobs
Live in care jobs provide support to clients who require around the clock care in the comfort of their own home as part of a home care / domiciliary care package. This saves people from having to move to an unfamiliar care home setting and means that they receive dedicated services and companionship.
Employers usually require experienced care workers, or highly dedicated individuals with the right attitude towards learning and caring for others. Having previously worked as a care assistant or support worker is often beneficial, though many providers offer extensive training regardless of experience.
Some live in care jobs will require senior care experience to apply. This could be due to medications or needs for specific client groups. In some instances you may also work alongside and support a nurse when on duty.
Live in care jobs require total commitment with great levels of reliability and trust. You will literally be on hand around the clock at the home of your client. Working to a tailored care plan, the duties of a live in carer can include many tasks. From personal care and bathing to household chores, the idea is that you manage the home for the peace of mind of the client and their family.
General duties of live in care jobs can also include cleaning, preparing meals, laundry and shopping. Many service users will also wish to visit family or friends to socialise. You may also need to take the client to appointments and should check if a driving licence is required for some roles for this reason.
The most important aspect of live in care jobs is to offer companionship. Every family is concerned that their loved ones are not alone and in good hands, so it is your job to befriend your client and make them feel comfortable. Therefore it is important that you have a genuine, caring nature to want to improve someone’s quality of life.
