One of the unique advantages of becoming a live-in carer is the relationship that you will build with your clients, their family and friends. With many other care roles, time is limited and you do not have the opportunity to build a meaningful and close connection. While working in live-in care, you will get to know your client, build mutual trust and establish an enriching relationship. The Good Care Group takes extra care to match our live-in carers with clients that share similar personalities, hobbies and interests, to help make their daily lives more enjoyable, fun and stimulating.
Many Live-in Carers enjoy the day-to-day variety working in live-in care provides. Every day on the job will present new opportunities and new challenges. From driving your client to appointments, chatting over a cup of tea or enjoying new activities with them, no two days working in live-in care are quite the same.
Another major benefit of working in live-in care is the flexibility a career in care path provides. Although you will be required to provide consistent care for the entirety of your assignment, you can choose the length of your assignment and the time you take off between jobs. This allows many carers to have a flexible schedule and to fit work around other personal commitments.
One of the disadvantages of other types of care roles is that they require high efficiency in a fast paced environment with little time to get to know your client on a personal level. This is not the case with live-in care.
