Looking for home care jobs in London UK? Not to worry. Lifted Care has plenty of carer jobs in London to provide opportunities for people like you who are looking to care for and help people who need it most.

What Is a Live-In Carer?

Here at Lifted Care, we’re always looking for people to support and provide families with one-to-one live-in care services. 

Our live-in carers help people who are elderly, disabled, recovering from surgery, or have a developmental condition, plus, our clients can have a range of other health problems to contend with. 

These people need help carrying out day-to-day activities. And many of them need companionship. This is where our live-in carers come in. They provide much-needed support to clients.

What Does a Live-In Carer Do?

When it comes to live in care jobs in London, the required duties vary from client to client. Some will need around-the-clock care, while others may need support for specific activities. 

For example, a client who has recently had a stroke may require lots of attention because they have issues with speaking, eating on their own, dressing themselves, or going to the bathroom. 

Another client might be recovering from surgery and need general help with getting around, light household chores, and running errands.

What Qualifications and Experience Do I Need to Work in Live-In Care?

At Lifted Care, we aim to recruit candidates with at least six months of experience working as a professional carer. However, we can be flexible in our requirements. 

For example, if a candidate doesn’t have professional care experience, we look out for individuals with professional experience in other health and social care fields, such as medicine or nursing.

If you don’t have professional care experience or any other related experience, we’re more than willing to train you. So long as we see you have a passion for the job and at least have previous experience caring for a loved one, we would love to have you on our team. We’ll put you through a dedicated programme to help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to be a professional carer.
