Find out about a rewarding job in live-in care that could give you the job satisfaction that you have always wanted.
Being a carer has always been thought of as largely associated with residential care and domiciliary drop-in care. However, with the growing elderly population in the UK, the lack of residential care places and the strain on the NHS from bed blocking, a different type of care has come under the spotlight. Live-in care is a fantastic care option that requires the client doesn't move from home, it requires they don't split from their pet or partner and it helps to ensure their safety, independence and quality of life because of amazing 1-to-1 care provided by professional carers.
Don't just take our word for it though, take a look at these statistics from The Live-in Care Hub 2019 Better At Home Report:
By working within live-in care or home care services you can know that you are helping the care crisis in the country and you are directly helping your local community. You are also going to make a huge difference to the life of the clients you work with. You cannot underestimate the value of a person being able to remain in their own home, surrounded by the things they worked so hard for, perhaps a garden they cultivated for years, neighbours they know, views they love. The value is not only to the client but to their family who get the peace of mind that their loved one is safe and happy at home.
As well as the incredible sense of job satisfaction that you get from providing care to a client in their own home, there are even more benefits to you in this type of job including:
If you are interested in becoming a live-in carer and making a real difference to a person's life, why not take a look into live-in care jobs. You can contact your local live-in care agency to enquire about live-in care jobs and how to make this next big step in your care career. Often there are no qualifications required and training is provided by the agency. As long as you are naturally compassionate, physically fit and have excellent organisation skills and willingness to learn, becoming a live-in carer could be the right rewarding job for you and an amazing next step in your care career.
