  • Accompanying on special and regular outings
  • Cooking and sharing meals
  • Light domestic support such as cleaning, laundry, care of pets
  • Light gardening duties
  • Participating in hobbies and crafts
  • Helping with travel arrangements and accompanying to appointments
  • Assisting with correspondence and paperwork

dreamstimexs16352114 w640h480 Companion HousekeeperCompanion housekeepers will not necessarily be qualified carers or nurses and therefore will not be expected to administer special medication. Eden Private Staff can however source and provide qualified carers for clients if required. We also recruit for households with young children or young adults, where the companion housekeeper works alongside a more specialist carer or a nurse.

Companion housekeepers are often employed on a ‘live in’ basis and will expect to receive full board and lodging as part of their role. As agreed in advance with the client, they should also have two full days off per week. We recommend that live in companion housekeepers are paid are minimum of £450 per week net.

All of the companion housekeepers we put forward for consideration will have a current DBS disclosure (police records check) and their own transportation. We also ensure that all candidates are carefully and thoroughly reference checked and interviewed by one of our consultants. We do also recommend that prospective clients speak to the referees themselves.

We can source companion housekeepers to work all over the UK and the world – clients within the UK range from Cornwall to Scotland and international clients range from Europe to the middle east and the Americas.
