Being a carer is one of the most rewarding jobs there is. Believe us, we know.
We only employ those who have certain characteristics that we would want if our own loved ones were being cared for by someone else. After all, customers are welcoming someone new into their home, so they have to trust that we are selecting only the best carers to join our team. When recruiting live-in carers, we choose those that are empathetic, patient, kind and who are willing to go the extra mile for the person entrusted into their care. You don’t need any specific qualifications to be a live-in carer, and although previous care experience is a plus, it isn’t a necessity. Just the will to care for others with compassion and dignity.
Our carer assessment process is designed to give you the skills to be the best live-in carer you can be.
Your assessment day will cover a number of modules via classroom sessions and practical activities, ensuring you're fully prepared to offer bespoke, holistic live-in care.
