Live-in carer and baking star in one? We have been looking for you!
About our clients
We have several clients who would love a live-in carer who enjoys spending an afternoon in the kitchen with them, baking cakes or biscuits.
Are you a baking-enthusiast? Don't worry about creating a culinary masterpiece - above all, baking should be fun, relaxing, and an engaging activity. If you enjoy spending time in the kitchen, join us!
Ranging from £639.80 to £816.48 a week (pay rates as of 1 April 2020).
About the role
Britain is a cake country – us Brits love our cakes and bakes, especially when served with a steaming cup of tea.
Many of our clients enjoy nothing more than spending an afternoon in the kitchen baking, and having a live-in carer who likes to join in the fun can make for a wonderful shared activity.
Of course, baking is not about creating a culinary masterpiece - it is about relaxing, unwinding, and sharing the experience of creating something delicious from scratch. We find that many of our clients, especially those who suffer from Dementia, love the feel of flour, the smell of a cake in the oven, and of course the taste of their own bakes.
Do you enjoy (helping your client) bake some delicious treats, be it sponge cakes, treacle tarts or biscuits? We have several clients who would love to meet you!
