Live-in carer vacation pay and cover for your care

All workers in the UK are entitled to a minimum of 28 days of paid leave every year. As a carer, you start acquiring your holiday entitlement as soon as you start a position and it is important to note that holiday entitlement does not include and cannot be counted as weekly rest days. Your holiday pay will be equivalent to what you earn regularly, but it is always a good idea to ensure that all aspects are clearly detailed in the contract.

Respite care is here to fill the gap when you need to step away from your regular care duties while having someone seamlessly take over. Caregiving is a demanding job and everyone needs a break from time to time.

Respite Carers at home are here so you can take a break, go on holiday and come back to your client refreshed, they are here to help carers. Respite carers are able to step into the home and completely take over the duties that you assist with. Whether you require someone full time or part-time, live in or live out, your respite care will be completely personalised to you and your specific needs.

It is important that everyone is able to take a break from their day to day life every now and then, which is why respite care is such an essential part of the care industry. We understand that even though you need to take time for yourself, that does not mean that the care you were giving can go hold. A respite carer is a perfect option for you. A respite carer at home will be able to step into your shoes seamlessly so you are able to take time to yourself, rest and relax. Taking time for yourself is essential to ensure you are able to do any job to the best of your ability without overworking yourself and burning out. Which is why a respite carer is here to support your carer.
