Happy #YouCanCare Week!

Every year we spend a week making extra effort to encourage people to consider a career in care. #YouCanCare Week is an official awareness week that urges people from all backgrounds to join our team of CAREGivers.

Many of our new CAREGivers are anxious when stepping into their role because they don’t have previous care experience. But the key attribute we look for is a warm heart. With our exceptional training programme, we help them take their kind nature and transform this into something that will truly make a difference for clients.

There’s no doubt that the past 12 months has turned the job market upside down, with many facing an uncertain future when it comes to their employment. For this year’s #YouCanCare Week, we’re showing that there are many sectors that require skills that transfer well into care. While many people might be nervous about joining the care sector, the truth is that they might have acquired a skillset that makes them ideal for the role.

Across our franchise network are people who have worked in a range of roles, from flight attendants to casino workers, and even an opera singer! They have all found themselves utilising the skills they have built up over the years, and care has become a natural progression in their careers.

Over #YouCanCare Week this year, we’re shining the light on some of these fantastic CAREGivers. Stay tuned for some videos on social media where they talk us through what it has been like moving from their previous sector and into care.

We hope that this gives people the encouragement they need to get in touch with their local franchise office and begin the rewarding role as a Home Instead CAREGiver.
