What is Required of a Live in Care Job?
A live-in carer allows someone who needs day to day assistance to remain in their own home rather than have to move into a residential care home. This allows someone requiring care to stay in familiar surroundings and continue to live with their spouse or family, living their normal life with one to one care rather than having to see multiple carers on different shift patterns.
As well as the benefits to the client, it can also be a very rewarding experience for a live-in carer as it allows them to focus on one client and build up a close bond and strong professional working relationship with one person.
The ideal live-in carer is trustworthy and dependable as you will be required to live alone often with a vulnerable person within their home. Your accommodation is provided for during the length of your placement and you will be providing care on a continuos basis. It is important to have great English skills to aid your understanding of what the patient needs and be able to hold a conversation as you can sometimes be the only interaction the client gets aside from TV and radio if they live alone. As you will be living in their home, it is important they learn to trust you and feel comfortable in your presence.
You will be required to complete a number of domestic and personal jobs such as housework, food preparation, laundry, shopping and medication administration so the ability to work under pressure and multi-task is essential.
