Recently, Home Instead held their office Christmas parties which was a great opportunity for us to spend some time talking to our Clients and CAREGiver’s to gather some great stories about the relationships they have with Home Instead.
Kathy Markwick, Community Development Officer at Home Instead Sheffield, joined us back in April from the banking industry and is amazed at the rewarding feeling of working in the care sector.
“What was very special for me was to see two CAREGiver’s caring for their client who suffers from Alzheimer’s. Although the client did not speak during the party and appeared quite subdued, when we sang Silent Night she joined in and then kissed her carers and hugged them. I found it extremely moving and this is another time in my new career which reinforces why I left a bank after 34 years’ service to work for Home Instead”
For some people, the care sector is quite intimidating, but Kathy is proof, along with many of our CAREGivers that it can be the most rewarding job of all.
Taking a bit of time with our clients gave us a chance to make sure they were all happy and satisfied that they were receiving care of the highest quality and this particular client was full of praise.
“All the carers who look after my husband are brilliant and really special – your HR Department is doing an excellent job in ensuring only the right people work for Home Instead”
We are delighted with the kind words spoken by our Clients and CAREGiver’s and we want this continue. This is why we carefully hand pick our CAREGiver’s to ensure our clients have someone they can trust and rely on.
We are always looking for more individuals to work part-time and help provide our award winning care. If you would like more information about the roles we have available or would like to apply, call us on 0114 246 9666 or come and see us at our Ecclesfield office!
