Handicaphjælpere nær London, starting NOW or in July or January. Training provided

What are you doing now or will you be doing in July or next January?

Come to the UK, explore nearby London and the country (with your employer & on your own), improve your English, enjoy our way of life and gain satisfaction from doing a worthwhile job.

I am a family man paralysed from the shoulders down. As I am totally dependent on others, I employ 2 residential carers who enable me & my wife to live as a normal life in the community as is possible.

I am currently advertising for one or possibly 2 people to start work as soon as practical. I always employ at least 2 carers. My two carers normally work for me for six or seven months or a year, however other periods can sometimes be arranged. I am also and always advertising for two carers to start in the next July or the next January.

My family and carers share two neighbouring houses about 50 km. or 30 minutes by train from the centre of London. There are lots to see and do both on and off duty.

I have employed over 70 Danes as my carers for the last 27 years and so can provide many references from previous carers. Most applicants have just graduated from gymnasium or HF and are often, but not exclusively, interested in healthcare careers (e.g. medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, midwifery, etc).

My carers work consists of caring for me and looking after the house in which they live. My carers normally work two days on and two days off and are expected to spend an hour on their day off cleaning their house according to a schedule.

The working environment is within a modern spacious house when at home or in luxury hotels or nice homes when traveling with the family. Each carer has their own bedroom and they share a bathroom, a sitting room and kitchen of their own. Free broadband wireless internet access, a PC, TV, Video, DVD and CD players are provided.

Berkhamsted, the historic market town where we live, has many amenities including a sports centre, fitness centre, lots of pubs and interesting shops. The local area is very pleasant, surrounded by nature with country walks in all directions. As you can imagine nearby London offers absolutely everything, endless markets, museums, shopping, parks, art galleries, etc, even a Danish Centre and two Handball Clubs.

We do try to travel to Scotland at least twice a year, where my wife and I have close family. Scotland offers its own unique culture and history, fantastic scenery and excellent shopping. In Scotland we normally stay at my mother’s house, which is only 20 minutes by train from the centre of Glasgow, with shopping that matches London. My mother’s house backs onto lovely countryside with lots of walking and exploring possibilities. Other travel opportunities within the UK and abroad can sometimes happen depending on our circumstances at the time, especially my health. In the past my family and carers have travelled to the USA and Europe, however nothing can be guaranteed during any particular carers stay.

Prospective Applicants can learn more about this exciting opportunity by e-mailing jonathan.hayes@which.net for an Information Pack. If they would like even more information they can talk to my existing Danish Carers by telephoning +44-1442-871552.

No previous experience or qualification is required. Training in all aspects of the care routine and in driving in the UK is provided. My carers are normally aged 18-22, but others of any age are welcome to apply. My carers have had many reasons why they have chosen to care for me.

They may wish to improve their English, take a year out in the UK & near London, improve their CV, gain points towards their education and/or gain experience in work which involves most of the healthcare professions, e.g. nurse, doctor, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, midwife, etc. However these healthcare ambitions are not essential, people with other ideas have enjoyed the experience and have gone on to become teachers, psychologists, business managers, etc.
