Our Live in Carers

It can be a big decision to choose live-in care for someone. You need to be sure in the knowledge that you are choosing a company that you can trust and that you will receive safe, reliable and caring support from our carers. We realise that selecting the right carer to work with you is vital. We have a rigorous selection process and choose only those carers who show a commitment to working within the values of Orchid Care, recruiting only those who are committed to promoting individuality and showing respect for physical, emotional, social, and cultural beliefs.

We only select carers who have had previous care experience. All prospective candidates are interviewed by Julie, Lynn and Peter personally and are able to provide references including one that is directly related to their past care experience. All our carers are fully checked for identity, eligibility to work and their qualifications and previous employment held. In addition all carers hold full, current DBS certificates prior to commencement of care duties.

All our carers at Orchid Care are fully aware of the requirements of the job and the duties that they will carry out prior to commencing a placement. Ongoing monitoring is given to each live-in placement to ensure that the client’s needs are being fully met at all times and support given as necessary.
