URGENT: Handicaphjælpere nær London, starting Now or in July or January, Training provided, United Kingdom

What are you doing now or will you be doing in the future?

Come to the UK, explore nearby London and the country (with your employer & on your own), improve your English, enjoy our way of life and gain satisfaction from doing a worthwhile job.

I am a family man paralysed from the shoulders down. As I am totally dependent on others, I employ a minimum of 2 residential carers who enable me & my wife to live as normal life in the community as is possible.

I am currently advertising for one person to join my existing 2 carers as soon as practical. I am also advertising for up to 3 carers to start caring/working for me next July and/or next January. I always employ at least 2 carers, but prefer 3. My carers normally work for me for a year or six or seven months. I am almost always advertising, so you are welcome to apply at any time. Other start dates or length of stay can sometimes be arranged.

My family and carers share two neighbouring houses about 50 km. or 30 minutes by train from the centre of London. There are lots to see and do both on and off duty.

I have employed over 70 Danes as my carers for the last 27 years and so can provide many references from previous carers. Many applicants have just graduated from gymnasium or HF and are often, but not exclusively, interested in healthcare careers (e.g. medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, midwifery, etc).

My carers work consists of caring for me, helping me in my office and looking after the house in which they live. My carers are normally contracted to work two days on and two days off and are expected to spend an hour on their day off cleaning their house according to a schedule. However when I have 3 or more carers I arrange alternative schedules, but my carers always work for 3 days out of every 6 days or 15 days in any month.

The working environment is within a modern spacious house, when at home or high-quality hotels or at my mother’s home in Scotland. When at home each carer has their own bedroom and they share a bathroom, a kitchen and sometimes a sitting room. Free broadband wireless internet access is of course provided.

Berkhamsted, the historic market town where we live, has many amenities including a sports centre, fitness centre, lots of pubs and interesting shops. The local area is very pleasant, surrounded by nature, with a canal and country walks in all directions. As you can imagine nearby London offers absolutely everything, endless markets, museums, shopping, parks, art galleries, etc, even a Danish Centre and two Handball Clubs.

We do try to travel to Scotland at least twice a year, where my wife and I have close family. Scotland offers its own unique culture and history, fantastic scenery and excellent shopping. In Scotland we normally stay at my mother’s house, which is only 20 minutes by train from the centre of Glasgow, with shopping that matches London. My mother’s house backs onto lovely countryside with lots of walking and exploring possibilities. Other travel opportunities within the UK and abroad can sometimes happen depending on our circumstances at the time, especially my health. In the past my family and carers have travelled to the USA and Europe, however nothing can be guaranteed during any particular carers stay.

Prospective Applicants can learn more about this exciting opportunity by e-mailing: for an Information Pack. If they would like even more information they can talk to my existing Danish Carers by telephoning +44-1442-871552.


My carers must be healthy, patient, flexible, willing to learn and have a clean drivers licence with no accidents or convictions. They must also be non-smokers and speak some English.

No previous experience or qualification is required. Training in all aspects of the care routine and in driving in the UK are provided. My carers are normally aged 18-22, but others of any age are very welcome to apply. My carers have had many reasons why they have chosen to care for me.

Applicants may wish to improve their English, take a year out in the UK & near London, improve their CV, gain points towards their education and/or gain experience in work which involves most of the healthcare professions, e.g. nurse, doctor, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, midwife, etc. However these healthcare ambitions are not essential, people with other career aspirations have enjoyed the experience and have gone on to become teachers, psychologists, business managers, etc.
