Caring for Others - Universal Care

  |  Published: Oct 21st 2014

If you think taking care of others is one of the most important jobs around then we want to hear from you.

 

Do you like chatting to people and enjoy interesting conversation? Could you be a good companion to an older person, staying with them for up to two weeks at a time, to take them out, make meals for them, cups of tea and chats, carry out a little housekeeping, shopping and laundry.

At Universal Care we currently have over 70 people that we look after on a live-in basis, this means that we provide a carer to stay with them usually for about 2 weeks at a time. This service is fantastic for the elderly person as it means they can stay in their own home rather than move into a residential care home. Let’s face it, most of us would rather stay in our own home than move out into an unfamiliar environment where your usual routine goes out of the window and you have to fit in with the routine of the care home. ttle housekeeping? We have some fascinating clients who've had interesting and varied lives who are looking for carers to live-in with them to provide assistance and companionship. We book our staff in for two weeks at a time; you can then take a week or so off or work the pattern you choose. We’ll provide you with all the training and support you need. This job is perfect for someone who likes people and has something to offer – you don’t need experience – just a friendly and caring attitude. We’ll pay you a minimum of £550 per week plus your travel. We also pay 3% into a pension for you and give you paid holidays. Ring Nicole for an informal chat if you think this might be something you’d like to try. Please share this if you think you know someone who might be interested. Thanks. ttle housekeeping?

Being a live-in carer is extremely rewarding, not just because you’re enabling a person to stay in the home they love but because our clients have had incredible lives and have many interesting stories to share. We regard it a privilege to look after our clients and we take it very seriously.

To join our team you don’t have to have experience in care as we’ll provide you with training but you will need to be a compassionate person, friendly and kind as well as having a high level of integrity, professionalism and you must respect the confidentiality of our clients.

We will pay you a minimum of £550 per week, plus up to £50 for your travel costs as well as 3% towards a pension. All your food and board will be provided for. You’ll have your own room and we ensure that the facilities for our carers meet our high standards, we’re fortunate to be looking after clients who live in beautiful surroundings and it’s a pleasure to stay with them. You get 2 hours off every day and can work whatever pattern suits you, so for example 2 weeks with a client then a week or two break to return home, or you could work up to five weeks at a time if you wanted, followed by a break before you go back to your client.

We’d love to hear from you and would be happy to have an informal chat to give you more information. Please call either of our Directors, Trudi or Peter or Nicole our Recruitment Manager or email us if you prefer.
