Job Description

We are currently looking for a live-in carer for our client in Chelmsford. We are considering carers who would be ideally available for a 3-month period starting from 27/05 - the position is likely to go on for longer than that but this is what the daughter would like for now. We are recruiting for other roles which are shared schedules (one/two weeks on/off).

Our client lives in a nice home within Chelmsford and has a very supportive daughter. The client had a fall that required her to be admitted to hospital and she is in the process of recovering from the fall. The client is completing daily exercises to try and improve her mobility. At the moment, the client is living upstairs only. Live-in carer will be supported by a supporting carer every morning to complete personal care and the daughter visits every day to provide the carer's two-hour break and further support for personal care/exercises. 

Your role will involve supporting our client with all aspects of her personal care, meal preparation, supporting her to take her medication as well as providing companionship.  This is a wonderful opportunity to work with an incredibly supportive daughter.  

Due to the high number of applications that we receive, we will only be able to contact those who would be applicable for the roles. Please see below for more details on Wilson's Care.
