Country Cousins are an introductory home care agency. Our role is to match the best Country Cousin to the client. This includes the type and level of training and experience that a Cousin has, the type of personality and interests of the client and the location.
Our Country Cousins are involved in setting the care plan and support directly with the client or their representative. This is where your professionalism and knowledge of home care services comes into play. You will lead the care for the family and ensure that the entire client’s needs have been met in full.
Should you have recommendations or think the client’s care needs has changed, you will raise these with the client or their representative directly.
As a Country Cousin you are engaged by the client to provide services, once we have introduced you.
This means that the client or their representative will pay you directly on production of an invoice at the end of your assignment.
Therefore, you will be a self-employed carer and you will need to register with the Inland Revenue. Visit the Inland Revenue website www.direct.gov.uk to find out how to register and have your questions answered.
Country Cousins offer three levels of home care, depending on your experience and relevant skills, and once you’ve been accepted as a Cousin we will discuss and agree with you as to which level you are most suited.
