If this sounds like you, Lifestyle Solutions wants to hear from you!

We are seeking an energetic, compassionate and resilient Live-in Carer to join our Accommodation Services in Newman, WA.

This is a challenging role but the reward for your dedication and persistence is knowing that you can positively impact the lives of young people; young people who have experienced trauma and may be displaying challenging behaviours as a result.

We're looking for a people-person, someone our young people can trust, someone who has their best interests at heart and someone who can balance the needs of the young people with the organisational requirements of Policy, Documentation and Reporting. Our Live-in Carers are a great example of employees who thrive on responsibility, communicate clearly, are calm in a crisis and are flexible in their responses.

While no one day is the same, you will be responsible for all household functions including cleaning, washing, meal preparation, transporting to and from the community and engaging the children and youth in various social activities.

As a Live-in Carer, you will be responsible for the following duties:

  • Help customers to engage with their local communities and culture through access to Community Participation Programs and recreational activities.
  • Create a comfortable and safe home environment with a consistent routine to help maintain their independence as much as possible.
  • Assist with and help to build independent life skills such as cooking and cleaning.
  • Provide personal care such as showering, toileting and dressing where required.
  • Administer medication.

What you will need to succeed in this role:

  • Experience working with youth with complex behaviours
  • Experience working in a therapeutic environment
  • Possess a high standard of reporting and documentation
  • Have a positive attitude which accompanies your resilience and commitment
  • A Current Driver’s License

Desirable but not essential for the role:

  • Previous experience as a Live-in Carer
  • Obtained a certificate or diploma in relevant courses

Please note, the Live-in Carer role is a Full-Time opportunity. We will accept applications for those seeking Casual Support Worker opportunities.
