We are looking for a Live in Care Assistant & Companion to join our team providing Live in Care & Support in Southampton and throughout the Hampshire area. Experience is preferred but not essential as excellent training will be provided. Driver’s Licence preferable but not essential.

The Employer

With an Outstanding CQC Rating for caring, you will be joining an award-winning organisation with an outstanding brand and reputation in the care industry! The Director and all his team are committed to deliver a first-class client-centred care. Having also experienced first-hand what it is like to provide care for an elderly relative, this provider puts their clients at the forefront of everything they do and help people to remain in the place they love the most, their home.

Live In care

Live in Care is fast becoming a fantastic choice for older adults who, rather than leave their home and go into a Care Home, get to stay in their own homes where it is a familiar and happy place for them, and enables them to stay independent whilst also having Care & Companionship and Personal Care on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

As the title suggests, your role would be living in a client’s own home. Your job as a Live in Carer would be varied and would totally depend on the client’s needs, which vary from person to person.  Some of the older people are more independent than others, but you will generally be supporting individuals with all manner of daily tasks. This could include:

  • Assisting with all elements of personal care including showering, bathing, dressing & undressing.
  • Helping with medication.
  • Preparing meals and other domestic duties.
  • Assisting with shopping and managing bills.

Living in Hampshire

If you are relocating, you may be wondering if Hampshire is a good place to live? Absolutely, in fact for a number of years Hampshire has been in the top 20 places to live in the UK, so if you are looking to relocate you could not pick a better place! London is just an hour away by train, and there are excellent transport links. With the New Forest National Park, Winchester Cathedral, The South Downs National Park and Hayling Island on our doorstep, there are endless places to visit, and lots of beautiful villages to live in too.
