Purely Care are recruiting for experienced care workers to support elderly and disabled clients in their own homes as a live-in carer. We provide care in East Anglia (Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and East London, Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire).
We have a range of clients, including younger adults with physical disabilities or long term health conditions, elderly people who may be infirm due to age, have complex conditions or dementia.
To be a good live-in carer you need to be cheerful and talkative, resourceful and able to deal with problems as they arise, non-judgemental and patient with people who are not as quick or efficient as you! You must have good spoken and written English and a high standard of personal and domestic hygiene. You should also be able to cook basic family meals.
We support our clients to live their lives the way they want to, so duties will vary depending on the needs of each client. Duties are likely to include helping with personal care such as washing, dressing and changing pads, assisting with food and medication, dealing with medical appointments, light housework and shopping.
You need to be physically fit as you could be pushing a wheelchair or using a hoist. We usually provide a 5-day induction that meets the national Skills for Care requirements. Training is held in Norwich and accommodation is available during training.
Nimber is a community delivery service that matches items being sent with travellers going the same way. You post what you'd like to buy, and we notify bringers who travel that route. When someone can help they will make you an offer.
Once you receive an offer, arrange pickup and delivery times with the bringer, accept the offer and wait for your items to arrive at your door.
Your card is never charged until your item has been successfully delivered, and there is no cost for posting a request.
