We have relaunched a campaign to get more people caring for the elderly, as demand for its services continues to grow.
Following the success of last year’s campaign, ‘You Can Care’, Our recruiter Lynne Williams at Home Instead Senior Care Altrincham, Sale and Wythenshawe is looking to recruit 45 caregivers to join our team.
Since launching the campaign in 2018, the company has grown by 27% over the past 12 months.
Skills for Care, a trusted independent charity with over 18 years’ experience in workforce development, estimates that 8% of roles in adult social care are vacant, which gives an average of approximately 110,000 vacancies at any one time. These statistics suggest that the sector is struggling to keep up with demand as the population ages.
Speaking of our campaign, Alan Savage, (owner of Home Instead Altrincham, Sale and Wythenshawe says, “The idea behind the ‘You Can Care’ campaign is to call out to people who may not have thought about a career in care. Caring is a truly rewarding job which offers excellent training and flexible hours.”
Alan continued, “When we launched the ‘You Can Care’ campaign last year, we saw an upsurge in interest from people looking to join the care sector. As our population continues to age, we are continuing to build our team with kind and compassionate people who want to make a difference to the elderly in the local community.”
A caregiver for Home Instead commented on working for the care company. She said, “I wake up each morning knowing that I am going to make a difference to those who need it the most. I am their comfort if they need it, their friend if they are lonely, a hand for those who need to hold it and an ear for those who want to talk”.
