Live In Carer Job Description

As a Live-in Carer, you will provide a full-time home care service for your client and support them with things such as washing, dressing and various aspects of personal care. You will meet clients who have varying degrees of dependency and care needs, which means you will be supporting them with a range of everyday activities. 

Some clients who may be experiencing memory loss or struggling with mobility can find the small tasks such as cooking and running the home increasingly difficult, so your role will be to take on these household chores to ensure the client feels safe, secure and confident in their own home.

Above all else, you will be offering your clients companionship and emotional support when they need it most. Simple things such as a quick chat over a cup of tea or sharing a laugh while they watch their favourite TV show can go a long way. For more information on our Live-in Care service visit our Live-in Care Page.

You’ll also receive a training package from our award-winning centre worth over £250*, this includes your induction training, which is a mix of virtual & face to face training. *Deposit required prior to training which is fully refundable after the completion of 14 days’ worth of bookings.

  • You can expect to earn between £650-£1,064 per week;

  • We provide a free COVID-19 test at our clinic here in Tonbridge;

  • You can book subsidised overnight accommodation in one of our nearby comfortable carer houses during training and for short breaks between bookings;

  • You will be assigned a training mentor to support you during training and into your first booking and beyond;

  • You will be able to sign up to our online, social support community for carers, via a dedicated Consultus Platform;

  • We will offer a well-being support package for carers which includes emotional support;
