Established in 1987, Christies Care is a family owned and run live-in home care agency which has grown to be one of the largest providers of 24 hour, 7 day a week care in the UK.
We are one of only three live-in care agencies to be rated Outstanding by our regulator (CQC), thanks to the extremely high quality of the carers we recruit and the excellent, free training they undertake.
We are looking for caring, hard-working individuals to train to be Christies Carers. In addition to being an emotionally rewarding career, our live-in home carers earn between £450 and £600 per week with free room & board.
As a live-in carer, you’ll live with your client, giving them as much help and care as they need while enabling them to live as independently as possible.
If your client needs help with cooking and cleaning the house, you’ll help; if they need help moving, you’ll help; if they need help with medication, you’ll help; if they need help washing or going to the toilet, you’ll help; and if they want to go for a walk, but are nervous of falling, you’ll be there to offer an arm.
Most importantly, as a live-in carer, you are there to offer your client companionship, so they have stimulation, someone to talk to, someone to play cards with, or just the knowledge that there is someone else there.
We know that this work sounds tough, but it is so rewarding. And we thoroughly assess our clients, the tasks they want their carers to carry out, living conditions and the carer’s break times. This assessment makes sure that the workload and conditions are suitable for a live-in carer. We are quite strict about this – we know that if a carer has good working conditions, they can do a better job.
