If you want a career in care, where you can make a real difference, there’s nowhere better!
Our people are the reason we are rated so highly across the UK for our levels of care, commitment and safety. Our support is the reason so many of them have stayed and made a difference to the clients they look after and have the career they have always wanted.
In the videos below our Professional Carers Lina and Gary describe what a typical day looks like for them and their clients.
Taking care of you
Wherever your care placement takes you, even if it seems remote, we’ll always be with you. You’ll have 24/7 access to your care management team as well as a confidential helpline and the compassionate support of an Admiral Nurse should you ever need it. Just a few of the reasons the CQC rated us ‘outstanding’ for carer support.
Matched to you
You’ll be placed with a client based not only on your skills as a carer, but on your compatibility as people. We look for shared interests and hobbies, experiences and backgrounds – the things that will help you bond more quickly and enjoy your work to the full – with all the benefits that brings to your own wellbeing.
A working pattern that works for you
When you join The Good Care Group, we’ll discuss the working rota that suits you best and allows you to take the breaks you need to recharge. We believe in shorter, more flexible patterns that give you the perfect balance between work and time away.
We pride ourselves on really looking after our staff so that they feel supported, happy and fulfilled. Because when our carers feel this way, our clients do too.
Changing career or transferring to a new company needn’t be daunting. We asked some of our valued team of carers to tell us about their experiences and what they think makes a successful live in carer. We hope they inspire you to join us too. Here are some of their stories.
“I took the step from domiciliary care to live in care to spend less time travelling between short calls and more time with clients on a one to one basis. It seemed like a great chance to really make a difference to the people I look after. Working a 2 week on 2 week off rotation was a big appeal to me too. I enjoy working all over England and Scotland as part of our Rapid Response Team, but I never feel isolated because there is always someone on the other end of the phone to offer support or advice. The Good Care Group offers more than just a job, they have given me a career.” Serenity, Rapid Response Carer
“I decided to become a live-in carer after my step-mum developed dementia and I soon realised what a huge difference the right carer made to her life. I feel privileged to be able to help provide support to my client helping her maintain her independence and continue living in her own home surrounded by possessions that mean so much to her.” Sarah, Professional live in Carer
“Working as a live-in carer requires empathy, patience, and a love for helping others. It’s incredibly rewarding and you know you are truly making a difference for that person. The Good Care Group is a high quality company where we all work with professionalism. I feel supported by the company 24/7, they have trained me and helped me evolve as a Professional carer – I’ve even gained a level 2 diploma in health and social care.” Lina, Professional live in Carer
