AN INCREASED demand for home care for the elderly and vulnerable who are self-isolating has led to a Bromsgrove home care business launching an appeal to find more carers.
Care Force Ltd, which provides a valuable service with dedicated support for people in their own home, wants more people to join its team.
Home carers help people with personal care, taking medication, and domestic tasks and also provide companionship for people living alone.
This aspect is especially important with so many people isolating during the current coronavirus pandemic and at a time when family members may not be able to visit their elderly relatives.
Care Force is hoping to attract people whose working situation may have changed because of the outbreak, as well as former care staff and young people aged 18 or over who are looking to get on to the career ladder.
Flexible hours and short or long-term contracts are available.
Care Manager Michelle Coates said: “No previous experience is necessary, just the desire to care and help make a difference to someone’s life.
“We offer full training, protective equipment and any assistance you need to give good quality care to our service users.
“You’ll be part of our amazing team in Bromsgrove, helping the most vulnerable in our community.”
Operations Director John Hollingsworth added: “Like everyone we’re affected by the pandemic with some staff self-isolating because of the coronavirus while others with underlying health conditions are part of the ‘shielded’ group and can no longer come to work.
“It is vital we have enough care workers to meet the increasing demand.”
Access to own vehicle is essential for making home visits.
