Self Employed Vs Employed

I had been a self-employed Live in Care Assistant for many years. I love spending my day providing care to an older adult in their own homes. I am certain this will always be the career for me, but at the end of my last contract, I did not have anywhere to go next. I felt unstable and I panicked that I would not be able to pay my bills.

Frantically searching online, I found this employer! Not only do they have an outstanding reputation for companionship led care, but they were looking for Live in Carers. They understood that I needed security and stability and wanted me to do the same job I loved! I was offered –

  • £100 per day.
  • Food Allowance.
  • Contribution towards my travel expenses.
  • Paid Annual Leave.
  • Sick & Maternity Pay.
  • Regular Working Patterns (2-3 Weeks on, 1-2 Weeks off).

I felt relieved! Lately, times have been so uncertain, it feels like a weight has been lifted knowing I will be supported. Even when my contract comes to an end, I will still be able to continue working for the same company. With so many franchises in the UK, I can go anywhere! I am so glad I made the change from self-employed to an employed Live in Care Assistant.


During my rest days, I love to spend my time strolling down the cobbled streets. I even enjoy an afternoon a canal boat! The locals are so friendly and welcoming. You can find the best homecooked roast dinners at the local inn, perfect end to an exciting day!

The Employer

They are an award-winning employer! They opened the service after experiencing the difficulties of finding high-quality care for their own immediate family, they wanted to start a service that would make a positive difference in older people’s lives. What makes them stand out is they focus on a companionship led approach to the care they provide making the person they support the centre of everything they do.
