Rise in Demand Leads to New Job Opportunities

And... Home Instead Weston super Mare receive 5 star employer award for 2023/2024!

Here at Home Instead Weston super Mare, we have noticed a sharp rise in demand for our care services, as families look to address health and wellbeing issues they may have seen in loved ones over the festive period. This has led to new employment opportunities for us to be able to offer to people keen to begin or further a career in care.

When families get together for festive gatherings, they often see a change in a loved one’s health, cognitive ability or general disposition, particularly if they haven’t seen each other for a long time. That leads to families having to consider care options.

Mike Keig, joint owner at Home Instead Weston super Mare, says: “For many of us, Christmas is when we spend more time with family members than usual. We might notice Mum is more forgetful than last time she visited and is repeating stories. Or perhaps Dad has lost weight and is off his food? It might be that an older loved one is talking about how little they see friends these days and is struggling with loneliness. For many families, job number one for the new year is to get professional care.”

As a result of increased enquiries, we are now looking for new care professionals to join our team, to meet this rise in demand.

Mike says: “Those coming onboard and joining as care professionals aren’t just starting a new job, they’re acting as a lifeline for local families. There are few roles more rewarding than a job in care and it won’t be long before you realise how much of a difference you’re making. We match care professionals to clients based on similar interests and personality traits; it’s no surprise that so many of them become genuine companions.
