What is a Live In Carer?

Live-in care is a permanent home care solution where you as a Care Worker are required to live with the person who needs care, in their own home, seven days a week.

Here at Blue Ribbon, we’re currently supporting thousands of families to live safely and independently at home with our dedicated one-to-one live-in care service. For many of our the people we care for, the ability to remain at home surrounded by familiarity is all they ask for – and you can play a part in enabling that.

As a Live-In Carer, you’ll support people with personal care, household chores and getting out and about. But above all, you’ll provide a constant source of companionship and emotional support, whether it’s simply a chat over a cup of tea or enjoying their favourite TV show with them. After all, it is these moments that often make the real difference.
