Why we’re working with Rest Less
We’re working with Rest Less because it makes total sense to our business. Our success is only achieved through the amazing team members we have and we are proud to have welcomed many professional carers aged over 50 (over half of our team!). Some already have care experience, many have needed to care for a loved one or friend, enjoyed it and want to try something different from the career they may have had for many years.
We love diversity. Our vision is to be the leading provider of the highest quality care in the home. We enable older people to enjoy staying safely and happily in their own homes and own community for as long as possible, whilst enhancing their wellbeing and lifestyle. We welcome team members who share this vision.
Find your perfect opportunity at The Good Care Group
In this short video, Fiori talks about her role as a Live In Carer supporting a lady who is living with dementia. She describes first-hand how she supports her client by helping her to live well with her condition by focusing on the things that have always been very important to her…
“As live-in carers we are uniquely privileged to support and care for people in their own homes. As such we are invited to live in someone’s home providing care and companionship on a twenty-four hour basis. I cannot think of a more fulfilling and rewarding job. With this privilege comes a great responsibility to respect the trust placed in us to live in someone’s house and have access to all parts of that person’s home and life. For me this means as one of the highest priorities, fitting in. Fitting into that person’s life, their routine, their preferences, not the other way around. For a short time live-in carers should be prepared, graciously and compassionately, to ensure that their clients needs and desires always come first.”
“I am reminded of my experience with Molly (not her real name). I had been briefed to expect a ‘difficult’ and demanding person, someone who would test me and put me through my paces. On the second day, after a reasonably smooth and un-demanding time with Molly, she remarked that I was ‘no trouble at all’. Mildly amused, I gently pursued the thread of conversation to discover that Molly had been afraid that I would try to take over and insist on doing things my way, that I would move her things about and look in her cupboards. This is what she had experienced before with live-in carers before changing to The Good Care Group. This is why she was perceived as ‘difficult’. Once she realised that I was respectful of her position as the person in charge of her own home and life, and happy to follow her lead, she relaxed and we got on beautifully. The ability to fit in is perhaps the most important quality a live-in carer can have, if we truly want to make a positive difference in someone’s life.”
