What do Live-in Carers in Sheffield do?

There is no place like home and Guardian Carers enables you to continue living the life you love in the home you love.

So you are at a point in your life when you are considering hiring a private live-in carer in Sheffield. You should know what your options for private care are. You might want to hire directly, but you should keep in mind that there are both advantages and disadvantages to hiring directly.

It might seem like a great idea to hire your own private carer, because of the obvious reasons:

  • Hands-on hiring process
  • Providing continuity
  • Increased familiarity with your private carer
  • Create a bond with your private carer over time

This all sounds wonderful, right? All you need is to find a competent private carer that lives in the area of Sheffield or who is willing to relocate to Sheffield and with whom you can form a strong bond over time. But if you want to hire your own private carer, you must keep in mind that there are some strict legislation rules that will apply to you as an employer. Some things to keep in mind if you want to hire a private carer for your Sheffield home, such as:

  • Providing the living wage
  • Assuring 48 hours of work per week for your private carer
  • Ensure your private carer has a DBS check
  • Check verbal references
  • Assure fair dismissal for your carer, if the relationship was to terminate

Private carers in Sheffield can be recruited tailored to your needs. If all you wish for is simple companionship, we can find the right companion for you. If for whatever reason you are on your own and you don’t get to spend much time with your loved ones, a private carer or companion is a great way to make the loneliness go away. These private carers are great because they can become your friend or in some cases, they even turn out to become the equivalent of a grandchild. If you want to get an idea about how this private carer relationship will look like, here are a few points. A private carer companion can:

  • Join you on outings
  • Come with you to visit friends or family
  • Play the games you like together
  • Join you to the theatre or a concert
  • Read aloud
  • Help you with cleaning and organising your home

A Sheffield private carer can do more than that too. If your needs are more complex than this and you need help getting around, you will be paired with a private carer who is equipped to carry out a differerent set of tasks. Private carers can also help you get in and out of bed, help you get dressed, they can bathe you and help you with other elements of personal care. If you are experiencing difficulty with mobility, a private carer can also help you access public transport or could drive for you if that is necessary. Otherwise, private carers can also help you book doctor’s appointments, make different calls, remind you to take your medicine or pick up your prescription, just to name a few.
