Sheffield company to create 120 local jobs

10/09/2010

The Sheffield office of national award winning care company, Home Instead Senior Care, which provides care in the home for 120 clients in the Sheffield area, is currently looking to double the size of their care team, creating 120 jobs in the area.
 
As the UK’s population ages, the need for care services will increase.  Recent figures show that by 2025 there will be over 13 million people in the UK aged over 65, many of whom will require care.
 
Bryn Evans, who owns and manages the business along with his wife Jill says that demand for their service is on the increase and they urgently need more Caregivers to look after clients in areas such as Swallow Nest, Gleadless, Ecclesfield, Woodhouse and Nether Edge.
 
Commenting on the Home Instead service, Bryn said: “The way in which we operate is unique and allows us to offer a different working environment for our Caregivers. For example, we match clients and Caregivers – we look for common areas of interest or life experience so that there is an immediate connection.
 
“It is common for care visits in the UK to be as short as 15 minutes which really just isn’t enough time, our care visits are of a minimum duration of 1 hour ensuring our clients receive the best quality of care while providing our Caregivers with high levels of job satisfaction.”
 
Bryn continued: “We have people requiring care right now and so we are very keen to encourage more local people to consider a career in caring.  For people with no prior experience we provide a full training programme so anyone who is interested in working in the sector should get in touch.
 
 
Home Instead is rapidly building a reputation as one of the UK’s leading care companies. Their unique service is tailored to the needs of individual clients and ranges from companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, post-discharge care, medication reminders, shopping and errands. The service allows people to remain at home and lead a relatively independent life and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
