Throughout the current health and economic challenges, one sector remains in high demand: home care. With more of the vulnerable and ageing population seeking support, Home Instead has launched Home Instead Hiring Week: Monday 20th - Friday 24th February, a national campaign of events that aims to hire 1000 Professional CAREGivers to join its nearly 4000-strong team.
Professionally trained CAREGivers play a critical role in the healthcare system by supporting ageing adults to live safe and well at home. All Home Instead CAREGivers are provided training through Home Instead’s unique Home Care Professionals Academy with access to state-of-the-art content and practical training. This training can take place online and in-person or a blended approach can be used.
Home Instead CAREGivers protect those they care for from the risks of isolation that can result in increased loneliness and malnutrition. They also help older people manage their conditions reducing hospital admissions and readmissions.
Home is the preferred option for the majority of older people as they age, and the preferred option for their families. Home provides comfort, independence and familiarity, leading to better healthcare outcomes that ultimately positively impact on the quality of life of the person being cared for.
If you are interested in a career in care we have recruitment and hiring events taking place from Monday 20th – Friday 24th February at the following locations:
Shane Jennings, Chief Executive Officer, Home Instead said,
“The professional CAREGiver role is ideal for caring and compassionate individuals who are seeking job stability with a flexible schedule and supportive environment as well as continued opportunities for career progression.”
“We like to say that it takes a special person to become a Professional Home Instead CAREGiver . . . and a desire to share their talents and skills with those they care for. It is a rewarding career for individuals from every walk of life and age group. Our teams are looking forward to meeting those interested in a meaningful career in home care at our events during Home Instead Hiring Week. We are a great company to work for with a culture steeped in values. We would not be where we are today without our exceptional employees.”
