Your live-in care worker

Striking the right balance between being supportive, promoting your independence and offering you reassurance.

We understand that having someone coming to live in your house can be a big step. That’s why we have a rigorous process to make sure we only recruit the right live-in care staff, rejecting many more candidates than we recruit.

We look for hard-working individuals with a special blend of compassion, common sense, reliability and a great sense of humour.

We provide comprehensive training for every care worker that makes it through the process, supporting and developing them throughout their care career with Agincare.

Always professional, every live-in care worker will strike the right balance between being supportive, promoting your independence and offering you reassurance.

Our live-in care staff are supported by community-based managers who continually monitor and co-ordinate the care provided. Our managers are always on hand for any queries you or your family may have.

What do your clients say about your live-in care staff?

We provide a fully-managed and regulated service to ensure our services are high quality. We also regularly survey our customers to listen to and learn from their feedback.

Are your staff employed or self-employed?

What makes our live-in care service special is that we fully manage it. While other live-in care services – such as introductory services – are available, they offer less protection and fewer guarantees for the same price.

We go the extra mile. We employ and pay the care staff, which means we have a duty of care. For example, if your care worker is ill, it’s our job to find someone to replace them.

We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This gives you a higher level of protection and peace of mind, knowing there’s a professional team managing your care. We also guarantee the training, supervision and support of our care staff.

And we’re always at the end of a phone should you need support.

What will I be expected to provide?

Your care worker will need a bedroom and is entitled to a two-hour break each day (or 14 hours a week).

They will also need somewhere to keep their clothes, and access to a bathroom and a kitchen. While they are on call for 24 hours a day, minimal interruptions during the night are expected.
