Home Instead CAREGiver shares her love for the job
Hello my name is Maggie - Please read my journey as a CAREGiver at Home Instead and would encourage anyone to get in touch to come and join our amazing team.
Here's my story - I found this unique, amazing company 18 months ago whilst I was looking for a job, and at my age (should have retired some time ago), not an easy task, until one evening with friends, someone mentioned that Home Instead were looking to recruit carers to care for people in their own homes. It never occurred to me to be a carer but the thought stuck and the next day I called them, spoke to Kate who invited me to come and meet with her.....I did, and thought that when they saw how old I was that that would be it.....
Age never came into the conversation and I was offered training, very thorough training, along with 5 others. It was fun as well as serious and at the end of it I got a Care Certificate and the confidence to pursue a career in caring for the elderly in their own home.
So here I am, on another chapter of my life, and what a road it has been......
This job is not always easy but rewards far outweigh that - a face that lights up when you see them, a hand to hold and an ear to listen when they want to tell you some wonderful stories.
You don’t need a list of qualifications to do this job, you just need to have patience, compassion and respect and sometimes humour. This is a special job for special people to look after our wonderful elderly clients. Call now.... we all have something to offer. I LOVE MY JOB
Please call Kate on 01423 774490 or email [email protected] to arrange a chat and find out more. Maggie would love to see you join our wonderful Team.
