Hello there,

Now that you have looked at this advert, keep reading.....I want you to do something if you read this THROW AWAY your ideas of what a "carer" is....Home Instead Senior Care is different!

Think about this...have you ever picked up a prescription for a friend or accompanied someone to the doctor?  Have you ever helped someone in your local community, carried their shopping for them?  Or, have you simply just lent your ear to a friend or offered a shoulder to lean on when somebody has needed some emotional support? I bet you have, but you haven't really thought about it!

Becoming a CAREGiver with Home Instead is simply all those things that you do to enhance the quality of life for seniors and to help keep them independent in their own home.  With Home Instead, care means quality care. It means providing support that is completely personalised to the individual and is based on a close bond formed from personality similarities, shared experiences or interests.

Because of this, you can help families know that their loved ones remain safe and well, and cared for at home. You can deliver a rewarding experience to people who may be lonely or require a bit of extra support to retain their independence.

We are looking for people with a big heart, a lovely personality and a big smile.   Can you have a flowing conversation with another person?   Could you make someone’s day with your visit?    Do you have a warm, kind, caring nature with some time to share with another?  If yes, then you NEED to call Home Instead Maidstone NOW!!!
