“You have the skills we need!” Says local care company boss

A local care company is urging jobseekers from all walks of life to bring their valuable skills to the care sector.

As the pandemic brings unemployment and an uncertain future for the job market, Home Instead Beverley and Hull, which a number of care roles to fill, is urging local people to consider a career in care. While there are job losses in sectors such as retail and hospitality, the pandemic has caused a surge in demand for home care as people look to protect their loved ones.

Mandy Aitken, owner of Home Instead Senior Care Beverley and Hull, says: “We welcome applicants from all backgrounds as our caregivers are matched to our clients based on shared interests and much of the care is companionship based.”

Emma Ingram used to work in her family’s fruit and veg shop. Unfortunately, due to a change in circumstance, Emma found herself seeking alternative employment.

Now a caregiver for Home Instead, Emma says: “I have always worked in retail, but after the closure of our family shop, I decided I wanted to go down a different career route. So, I applied for a job at Home Instead and I’m so glad I did. Home Instead care about my family commitments & work around my family life, but the most rewarding part is seeing my client’s faces light up when I arrive, that is priceless! I would definitely recommend being a caregiver, as the training I received was excellent and the service they provide is amazing”.

Home Instead takes a unique, person-centred approach to home care, which benefits both clients and the team. Clients are supported to live as independently as possible, by caregivers that they come to know well and who visit for a minimum of an hour at a time. Caregivers’ duties are tailored to the needs of individual clients and ranges from companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, post-discharge care, personal care, shopping and errands.
