Job description

Providing Quality Care

Bluebird Care started as a small family business in 2004, and today we are proud to be one of the largest providers of home care services across the UK. But what makes us different?

Here at Bluebird Care territory, we’re committed to keeping people in the comfort of their own home. We began by offering home care to the elderly in our local area and when this became a success, we branched out to look at Live-In care. Our aim is to keep people independent in their own homes for as long as possible, so we take care of everyday tasks around our customers’ homes all the way through to complex care needs. We appreciate that every customer is different, and this is why every day will be different.

Your Roles and Responsibilities as a Live-in Care Assistant 

As a Live-In Care Assistant you will be living with one of our customers or maybe even a couple to provide the very best care. You are there to be a companion, but also to help them remain independent in their own home and cherish all the memories they’ve made there.

  • Administering medication,
  • Manual handling, using equipment where required,
  • Promoting customer health and well-being, enabling them to live their life to the full.

  • Offering our customers companionship 

To begin with you will live with our customers for one week on and one week off, Additional weeks/ days maybe required to cover absences. 

Your Experience and Suitability for the Live-in Care Assistant Role

Previous experience is a bonus but not a requirement. Live-in Care Assistants are matched to our customers to ensure our customers and you get along so the most important thing to us is that you are naturally compassionate, caring and patient. We want a team who genuinely cares for each of our customers as if they were their own family.

Because We Care About You 

  • Competitive rates Starting at £650 per week 
  • Enhanced rates for Bank Holidays
  • If you use your own vehicle for customer use, you will be entitled to 25p per mile

  • Ongoing training and support
  • Regular, scheduled daily and weekly breaks which you can spend as you wish in or outside of the customer’s home
  • A clearly defined schedule of working time vs downtime during each day

But not only that, we take care of our team throughout the year, whether it's your birthday, Christmas, awards or simply because it’s a Thursday. We’re a family and we’re here to look after you today, tomorrow and every other day after that.
