Clients usually employ a team of 2 Live in PAs who each work alternate weeks. Accommodation is provided when working, it is not available when not working. PAs are paid a daily rate that covers a 24-hour period and includes a sleeping night. Apart from certain routine daily tasks, a lot of the time is spent being “on call”. A “Job share” and “flatmate” type of role.
Example wages for a 7-day week Live-in: £980 to 1,610 per week
5.6 weeks holiday per year. This includes bank holidays which are treated as usual working days.
There are variations and additions to the above, some clients employ additional carers who come in for a few hours each day to double up for personal care in the mornings and evenings. Some clients employ a team of PAs to work with them at university during term time and a different team when they are at home.
All of our clients require 24/7 support, this can range from those who have complex healthcare needs to those who only need minimal personal care. 24/7 support is not just about care, in most cases, care is only a small part of what a PA does.
