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.
