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 is launching Home Instead Hiring Week: Monday 15th - Friday 19th August, a national campaign of events that aims to hire 1000 professional CAREGivers to join its 4000-strong team nationwide.
Professionally trained CAREGivers play an integral role in the healthcare system and are critical in keeping vulnerable and ageing people safe and healthy at home. New CAREGivers are provided training through Home Instead’s Home Care Professionals Academy, using state-of-the-art content and practical training on quality systems and standards.
Home is the preferred option for vulnerable and ageing people and their families, providing comfort, independence and familiarity, leading to better health outcomes impacting quality of life. Home Instead CAREGivers protect more people 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.
Recruitment and hiring events will take place Monday 15th – Friday 19th August at the following locations:
Shane Jennings, Chief Operating 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.”
