Fantastic opportunity!


We are looking for 1 FEMALE carer (LIVE IN) (Car Driver) to work for a lovely female client on the Cumbria coast.

Our client is a lady in her early 80s and is mobile but has mild memory problems, however she has not been officially diagnosed with Dementia so the role is primarily one of companionship with domestic housework and good cooking skills.

You will need to be a car driver as there is an automatic vehicle provided for the client/carer to use. Her family live around 20 mins away and are very involved in their Mum’s life. They often take their mum and the carer out for lunch at the weekend and want the carer to feel part of the family.

The client has some personal care needs and you will need to be patient when getting her into the shower.  She is little afraid of water on her skin so the carer needs to be gentle and encouraging when showering her. The carer is also encouraged to keep the lady mobilised and also to take her out at least 3 times a week as she is sociable and enjoys going to museums and restaurants. She used to be a mathematician and is very interested and knowledgeable about lots of topics, so someone who is well educated and has a good command of written and verbal English would be preferable.

What we offer

• Around £3,780 (Self Employed) per 6 week assignment with double time paid on Bank Holidays.

• The shifts are 6 weeks on and 2 weeks off.

• Use of the client’s vehicle for personal use. The carer must put petrol in the vehicle for personal use.

• Travel paid to and from the client’s home up to the maximum of the daily rate.

• Full food and board provided when on shift.

If you have relevant experience of caring and, preferably, live-in care, or are NVQ/Diploma qualified, we would like to hear from you. If you are not a UK resident, you will need to have clearance to work in the UK. As well as this, you will need an up-to-date enhanced DBS/ISA check (or be prepared to have one).

References must be supplied on your application.
