Shared Lives Carer - self employed - work from home
Do you have what it takes to become a Shared Lives Carer?
Has the covid pandemic made you think about a change of direction in life or even a new career, where you can work from home, feel valued and also give back to the local community? If so, Dudley based Camphill Village Trust, Birmingham City and Walsall Council Shared Lives schemes are looking to recruit new Carers throughout the Black Country, Birmingham and surrounding areas RIGHT NOW.
Sometimes described as ‘adult fostering’, Shared Lives Carers open up their home to support individuals with additional/complex needs to lead an ordinary life at the heart of the community just like you and me. Shared Lives Carers are very enthusiastic about how they create new opportunities and develop social networks, enabling the person to make decisions and take control of their own life, so as to be as independent as possible.
You are paid according to the level of support you provide, which sometimes can include personal care and Arrangements are set up on either a day-support, short-break/respite or live-in/long-term basis. CQC have rated 95% of all Shared Lives Schemes as either Good or Outstanding as the model is proven to support adults to lead longer, healthier, happier lives. There are currently 900+ adults being supported by about 900 Carers across the West Midlands region via 10 local schemes.
You don’t need any qualifications or experience, just the right values, dedication…and of course a spare room. We will provide you with all the training you need on the job along with an Enhanced DBS check. Your enthusiasm, motivation and commitment is far more important to us and we will support you every step of the way.
