Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, Employed (PAYE)
Posted: 3 days ago
At Bluebird Care Leeds North we are looking for a live-in care worker to support a particular customer.
Please note that for this particular customer you must be able to drive. The customer does have a vehicle for you to use so you do not need to own a car.
This role involves living with the customer in their own home on a rota basis, whereby you will work for one full week before having one full week off. The rota then simply rotates on this basis; one week on and one week off. Therefore it is vital that you can commit to being away from home for one week at a time.
The rate of pay is £500 for each week that you work. This is a permanent position and we are looking for a good long term match for our customer to provide stability.
Live-in care workers provide the support and encouragement that empowers the customer to lead an independent lifestyle. As the live-in care worker resides in the customer’s home it is important that the care worker recognise the importance of respecting the customer’s right to make choices and maintaining privacy. Live-in care workers are there to assist the customer in maintaining their lifestyle in a safe and secure manner.
The live-in care worker is not on duty 24 hours a day and is afforded time off when their services are not required. A two hour paid break is provided each afternoon.
Live-in care workers are also not on call throughout the night and are expected to be able to retire once the customer is settled for the night so they are able to commence their duties the following morning. It is expected that the live-in care worker be responsible for one call per night if the customer perhaps needs the toilet or a drink.
Our customer lives in Leeds and on this occasion we require a female live in care worker who is available to start in the next few weeks.
