Job Description

We are currently looking for two live-in carers for our client near Writtle, just West of Chelmsford.  The schedule will be one week on, one week off (or two on/off.)  You will be living with our client in her home near Writtle. Our client has cerebral palsy but the client is quite independent. The main duties will be meals, companionship and accompanying her on trips out which she likes to do on most days. Our client will need assistance with taking a shower a couple of times a week.

Our client wants to enjoy trips out so the carer must have a license - the client has her own car so the carer does not need to have their own car.  This is a wonderful long-term opportunity to work with an incredibly high-spirited individual who does not require too much help.

 

Due to the high number of applications that we receive, we will only be able to contact those who are applicable for the role. Due to the nature of the schedule, we will only accept UK-based applications. Please see below for more details regarding Wilson's Care.

Wilson’s Care is a family-run domiciliary care provider based in Essex committed to delivering outstanding support to enable our clients to have the best possible quality of life whilst keeping them at home where they feel most comfortable.  Our passion is derived from our own personal experiences of inadequate care for our loved ones which drives our desire to supply only the best personnel, supported by a caring management team.

 

We offer:

  • Competitive rate of pay
  • Comprehensive induction with ongoing, paid training
  •  Paid holiday and sick pay
  •  Pension scheme
  • Ongoing Training and Development
  • Full management support throughout

 

Role Requirements:

  • Supporting with personal care
  • Meal preparation (breakfast and lunch- dinner is provided by the family which the carers are invited to share)
  • Assistance with moving from wheelchair to chair/bed
  • Medication administration
  • Be honest, patient and have a genuine desire to improve the lives of vulnerable adults
  • Observing, and reporting on, the health and wellbeing of the client  (including recording fluid intake, MARs,)
  • Complying with all CQC regulations
  • Working in accordance with Wilson’s Care policies and values

 

About you:

  • Live-in care experience (preferred but not essential)
  • Be reliable, caring and have excellent attention to detail
  • Clear and thorough record-keeping skills
  • Hold a clean UK licence (essential)
  • An enhanced DBS check will be required
