One of the most common questions our team of care recruitment experts get asked is “What are the different types of Bristol care jobs?” and we’re happy to provide the best advice and guidance on the various job options for Bristol care workers.
There are distinct and different types of care work available in Bristol, and our recruitment team have identified the main categories of care work for you below:
Home Care Assistant:
Sometimes also called Domiciliary Care, these care jobs in Bristol are typically delivered in the client’s home; a care worker often, during the course of a day, visits and works with a number of different clients, following Care Plans which ideally are individual to each client.
Home Care can offer real working hours flexibility for care assistants, although there has in the past been feedback from some care staff that, in this type of care job, they would like to see more stability and prefer the ‘guaranteed hours’ type of arrangement offered by some care companies in Bristol. Our care jobs recruitment team can guide and advise you further.
Health Care Assistant:
These care jobs usually involve the provision of care to a wide range of clients or patients clients in a hospital environment, under the guidance and supervision of medical professionals and nurses. You are welcome to contact us at email@example.com for more information.
This is typically a care job which involves helping an individual client with the elements of their daily life which due to a health or medical condition, they are unable to manage with total independence. Support may involve taking a person on trips, paying bills, visiting the shops or personal care. The care employment arrangement is frequently a private one between client and care assistant. The care is bespoke and provided on an individual level on an ongoing basis.
Live-In Care Worker:
This type of care job in Bristol is similar to being a Personal Assistant, but often involves set shift patterns and living in the client’s home on a 24-hour basis for a week or two weeks at a time providing bespoke care for them.
Some Live-In Care Workers will work for longer stretches of time. Live-In Care workers are sometimes self-employed, however many are recognising the value and security of being directly employed by a high quality Bristol Homecare or Bristol Live-In Care Company or Provider.
Live-In Carer work in Bristol can be extremely rewarding, well paid, providing guaranteed hours and salary, as well as providing the opportunity to deliver a high level of care.
