Having a reliable, caring companion is essential. Why? Outside of the obvious. We only hire around 2% of the carers that apply at Lifted. Our high recruitment standards ensure that you receive the highest quality care possible. Lifted carers need to have empathy and compassion and be passionate about what they do. All carers that work here must tick both those boxes as a minimum. Before recruiting, we ask, “would we be happy for this person to look after our loved one”?
We care deeply about our clients. The Lifted care team are the lifeblood of what we do, and we truly do appreciate them.
Empathy and compassion are vital characteristics that we look for in our recruitment process; in addition to this, Lifted caregivers receive award-winning training. We conduct comprehensive assessments of our carers before caring for our clients and thorough background checks, including an advanced DBS check. Our training program covers topics such as manual handling, dementia, medications, health & safety, first aid and more.
After completing initial training, carers receive regular refresher courses and specialise in particular areas of interest or take advanced courses. For example, someone passionate about helping those with dementia might take advanced dementia courses.
