For 30 years, Patricia White’s has supplied the very best carers to help people remain in their homes.

We are always interested in hearing from well-spoken, experienced, self-employed carers in the London area, who can deliver exceptional care as well as the utmost discretion.

Patricia White’s is one of the UK’s most prestigious care agencies and if you register with us, you will be rewarded with highly competitive pay rates. A typical 8-week live-in assignment would earn you over £6,000 – even more when caring for couples.

You can also benefit from a great work-life balance and enjoy the flexibility to choose when you work and what assignments to undertake, as we offer both live-in and visiting assignments (although visiting assignments are only in London).

Typically, our live-in assignments require some care support and are 2-12 weeks in duration. We cannot offer companionship only roles at this time. If you would prefer shorter assignments, please see our sister agency Country Cousins.

Many of Patricia White’s existing carers come from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, and looking to work for a couple of months at a time and go back home or travelling afterwards.

We hand-picked carers for their experience, gentle nature and understanding, and willingness to always go the extra mile for clients, because at Patricia White's nothing is too much trouble.
