Meet the team
We have an excellent combination of staff who have been with us for many years coupled with fresh faces; all of whom are highly trained, committed and entirely focused on the needs of our clients. Our carers come from a variety of backgrounds and countries and all meet with the high standards we set. We work hard to ensure that each client is perfectly suited to their Live In 24 carer in order to encourage a strong bond between them.
We are currently compiling staff profiles so please check back soon to meet the team!

Miroslava has worked as a live in carer for two years and cared for people with varying needs, from personal care to preparing meals and administering medication.
When asked what is the most important skill a live in carer needs, Miroslava answered, "Active listening skills, because for some clients you will be the only person they see for a few days and so most people like to have a nice chat."
Miroslava is proud to work for Live In 24 and says that by providing this care it enables people to stay in their home and creates a sense of wellbeing which is very important.
Michaela is 28 years old and from Slovakia. She has been working as a live in carer for three years, and below summarises her average daily routine when caring for a client 24 hours a day.
Morning: I get up and assist my client out of bed and then help them with their morning routine which involves a strip wash or shower, get them dressed, clean their teeth, apply creams and brush their hair. I then administer any necessary medication and prepare breakfast.
Lunch Time: I cook home made food and eat with my client.
Afternoon: I do my client's shopping and accompany them on any errands such as taking them to visit their solicitor, doctor, hairdresser or family and friends.
