Our Live-In Care Assistant jobs

Becoming a Live-in Care Assistant

Our exceptional team of Bright Carers deliver award-winning, in-home care and companionship. Becoming a Live-in Care Assistant with us can give you a rewarding and fulfilling career in care bringing joy and purpose into people’s later years.

As a salaried Live-in Carer and companion, you will live side by side with your client in their home to provide care and companionship. As well as everyday tasks, you will have time to build a nurturing relationship, doing things like reading the papers, crafting, or drinking tea in the garden with your client.

With live-in care you don’t have any time restraints, which I love! It means I can still get all those things done throughout the day, but then I also have all the time in the world to just talk and be present with my client.
