Just do it! Make a difference today

Yay - Spring is finally on it’s way, and for many of us its often the time of year we have a good clear out, clean up the garden and generally take stock of what is important to us and what isn’t. We stop procrastinating and with a new energy finally put into practice what we might have been putting off, perhaps a new diet or exercise programme, summer holidays are just around the corner after all.

But this is also the time to think about you. Are you feeling fulfilled and valued in yourself, confident that you are giving your best everyday and in return receiving the thanks and recognition you deserve? If you’re not sure or the answer is no, perhaps you find yourself looking for a new challenge or a change in role that will make you feel good about yourself.

At Home Instead Senior Care, enabling older people to continue to live safe and well in their own homes gives us no greater satisfaction or joy. Often, it’s the small daily tasks, such a washing, dressing, making lunch, or tidying up that people need help with as they get older.  Or perhaps, as memories fade we might be there to gently remind and guide our clients with their routines. However, helping with tasks and activities isn’t enough for us as we know that friendship and companionship are particularly important to our older clients.

Looking forward to seeing our Caregivers on a regular basis, not only gives our clients peace of mind that someone is supporting them with their daily tasks but is they are also coming as a friend. As a Caregiver you see the same clients for a minimum of one-hour each visit, so you have the very real opportunity to get to know each other and build a trusting lasting bond. Happiness and genuinely feeling valued and supported, for both our clients and our Caregivers is why Home Instead is different and one of the reasons we are the first homecare organisation in Shropshire to be recognised as Outstanding by CQC.

So if you are looking for a change or fancy a new challenge, with hours from part time to full time, and are really motivated to make a difference to someone’s life then give us a call. Don’t worry if you’ve not done it before as we give full training. For us it’s your values and your compassion that’s important to us, skills can be taught. Call 01952 476720 and have a chat with Amy to find out if working as a Home Instead Caregiver will give you what you are looking for

Don’t delay, start making a difference today and make that call.
