About Christies Care

Click to view our Outstanding CQC report

Established in 1987, Christies Care is a family owned and run live-in home care agency which has grown to be one of the largest providers of 24 hour, 7 day a week care in the UK.

We are one of only three live-in care agencies to be rated Outstanding by our regulator (CQC), thanks to the extremely high quality of the carers we recruit and the excellent, free training they undertake.

We are looking for caring, hard-working individuals to train to be Christies Carers. In addition to being an emotionally rewarding career, our live-in home carers earn between £500 and £650 per week with free room & board.

What is a Live-in Carer

As a live-in carer, you’ll live with your client, giving them as much help and care as they need while enabling them to live as independently as possible.

If your client needs help with cooking and cleaning the house, you’ll help; if they need help moving, you’ll help; if they need help with medication, you’ll help; if they need help washing or going to the toilet, you’ll help; and if they want to go for a walk, but are nervous of falling, you’ll be there to offer an arm.

Most importantly, as a live-in carer, you are there to offer your client companionship, so they have stimulation, someone to talk to, someone to play cards with, or just the knowledge that there is someone else there.

We know that this work sounds tough, but it is so rewarding. And we thoroughly assess our clients, the tasks they want their carers to carry out, living conditions and the carer’s break times. This assessment makes sure that the workload and conditions are suitable for a live-in carer. We are quite strict about this – we know that if a carer has good working conditions, they can do a better job.

What is Live-in care?

Everybody should be able to stay in his or her own home, forever. Nobody should be forced out of their home, just because they have a disability or an illness.

At Christies Care we provide a live-in home carer who helps their client to stay in their own home, for as long as they want. The carer helps their client to do what they want to do, when they want to do it. Essentially, a live-in home carer enables someone to have the independence and life they deserve, whatever their circumstance.

In a recent survey, 97% of adults in the UK don’t want to go to a care home. If you become a live-in home carer, you will be helping someone stay in their own home.

“I would like to say thank you to Christies Care for giving me the opportunity to work as a live-in Carer. The experience has been so rewarding, teaching me various skills and aspects of life.

I particularly thank the Green Support Team and the great Booking Coordinators. Special thanks to all the Trainers and well done for all the awards you achieved you truly deserve them.”

Ndana Makaza , A Christies Carer
“My Mother was so pleased with all that Christies Care did to enable her to spend another 3 years at home, enjoying all her friendships with the companionship of her carers.

We are all so grateful for the hugely professional and thoughtful overall organisation of Christies Care. We will recommend you every time! All good wishes and heartfelt thanks to you all.”

Daughter of a client, April 2015

Being a live-in home carer can be a challenging and unpredictable job, but it is also an extremely rewarding position. Every day, when you care for someone, you will be making a huge difference to that person and their family; and sharing some extraordinary moments.

A live-in home carer can come from any background, with any experience. Our carers have been secretaries, bank managers, mothers, nurses, soldiers and teachers. Some were carers for hourly-care agencies or care homes who wanted the time to be able to care for people properly; some have no professional experience at all.

We will give you all the training you need, all we ask is that you are a caring, hard-working, patient, flexible person, who will use your initiative to make your clients happy.

Why Christies Care?

We offer care assistants a unique combination of financial commitment, size, flexibility and training. No other agency does as much as us to help its care assistants. We sort everything out before you get here.

  • We give you a free two week induction training course. We also have a guest-house where you can stay for free while receiving your training.

  • We support you thoroughly, especially over your first few weeks.

  • We guarantee your earnings. Terms and conditions apply.

  • We have a room for you if things go wrong.

  • We have clients all over the UK, including the Isle of Man and Channel Islands.

  • We give you advanced training if you want to concentrate on a certain client type.
