Live in Care jobs: The light in someone’s day every day!
You might be wondering: what will I be doing? As a Live-in Care Assistant, you quite literally live in your customers’ home. The benefits this brings is that you build a strong relationship with your customer. You will really have a key part in their happiness, well-being and overall independence. The rewards are second to none.
