Is This Role for You?
You Are Never Alone….Support, Support, Support!
Moving into someone’s home to deliver Care and support can initially seem a daunting prospect. So what is definitely not going to happen once you join us is that you are given the Client’s name and address, told to find your own way there and then we do not speak or see you again for 6 week until it’s time for you to leave for a break.
We have a member of our management team dedicated to our Live-in Caregivers and Clients. When you start with a new Client, she will take you there, introduce you to the Clients and get you settled in. She will be in contact with you weekly over the phone and face to face.
You will participate in monthly team meetings, have refresher training and supervisions at the office. Most importantly, you will feel part of a team and know that advice, support and a friendly face is just a phone call away 24 hrs a day and you can take comfort in knowing that all of our Clients are within 12 miles of our office, so we can be there quick-sharp if you are in a pickle.
How Long Will You Stay With Each Client?
Typically, most Clients like their Live-in Carer to stay with them for between 3 and 12 weeks in a single block. The Carer then takes a well-deserved break ranging from a few days to 6 weeks (you decide) before returning back to the same Client. However, after a period of time with the same Client you may like a fresh challenge with a different Client, which we are can also accommodate.
We also have an opportunity for a Cover Cares that stay with a Client for just 1 to 3 weeks at a time whilst the main Live-In Carer is away on their break.
Understandably, One of the foremost concerns of Live-in Cares is “ what happens if my Client unexpectedly goes into to hospital long term or sadly passes away? Nationally, Right at Home has 63 branches and 15 of them are within 25 miles of High Wycombe. So, should your assignment unexpectedly end you have the option of working temporarily with one of our local branches whilst we organise you a new Client in the High Wycombe area.
How Much Can I Expect to Earn?
This is not a self-employed role as is often the case with Live-in Care. You will be an employee of Right at Home High Wycombe with your salary paid directly into your bank account each month.
The rate of pay is linked to the complexity of the Client’s needs and varies from £625 to £715 per week, including holiday pay. You will also benefit from employers National Insurance contributions and pension contributions.
Living costs whilst staying with a Client are also exceptionally low as your meals and accommodation are provided so this role offers a great opportunity to save up for a rainy day or a significant purchase or house deposit etc.
Are We the Right Care Company for You?
