Contract

£33 - £66 per day

 

Would you like to work from home and be paid to make a real difference to someone’s life?

Shared Lives Carers are ordinary people who provide care and support in their own home for adults with a range of different needs including:

  • Adults with learning disabilities
  • Adults with physical or sensory disabilities
  • Adults in recovery from a health condition
  • Adults with an acquired brain injury
  • Adults who are elderly and frail
  • Adults with dementia
  • Adults with mental health needs

 

Previous experience is not necessary as each Shared Lives carer brings their own unique skills and experience to the job. We ask that you have a desire to help people, life experience and a commitment and positive approach to supporting vulnerable adults  We welcome applications from all family types and all walks of life.

 

As a Shared Lives carer you could offer different types of service from your home:

  1. Day support – where you would support someone, based from your home, for up to 6 hours
  2. Short term (respite) – where the person would come and stay for the odd night, weekend or week.
  3. Medium term – where the person stays at your home for a few weeks while their long term care arrangements are being organised.
  4. Long term – where the person would live with you fulltime.
  5. Re-enablement placements: usually a short term placement supporting people leaving hospital who need to redevelop their skills before they return home.
  6. Transition Placements: supporting people to develop their independence skills so they can eventually live independently.
  7. Emergency placements for people who have support and care needs that require immediate support at short notice.

 

Shared Lives Carers are self-employed and do not pay tax on some of their earnings. They receive competitive rates of pay and long term carers have four weeks' paid holiday a year.
