Home Instead Senior Care will hold Open Days in Waterford and Dungarvan over the coming weeks to meet with those who are thinking about a career change or a return to the workplace in the New Year.

Danette Connolly,

Director of Care, Home Instead Senior Care said that the New Year is traditionally a very popular time for many to consider new careers or a return to the workforce. With an increasingly ageing population and a focus on delivering quality care in the community, job opportunities in this sector are plentiful, with Home Instead Senior Care planning to double the number of

CAREGivers it employs in 2018.

"Many of us start the new year with intentions of fulfilling a new goal or personal achievement. For many that might mean re-evaluating our careers and for others it might be about returning to the jobs market.”

"Our Recruitment Open Days in Waterford and Dungarvan will give those who are thinking about a caregiving role the opportunity to ascertain if it's the right move for them. Many of our CAREGivers have returned to work after a gap as their circumstances may have changed, and they would like to do something fulfilling and rewarding, but yet would like to work flexible hours and more importantly, work locally.”

"Home Instead Senior Care provides a meaningful care service and works with a wide range of senior clients and their families who have different requirements. Some may simply require friendly company and someone to talk to, while others require assistance with many day-to-day tasks, such as shopping, meal preparation and laundry. As life expectancy is increasing and we are living longer, there clearly is a demand for this practical and positive service to the ageing population.”

Home Instead Senior Care provides comprehensive training to new employees and can also advise on other recommended courses depending on the level of care a person is interested in providing.

If you would like to find out about working in home care Home Instead Senior Care will hold open days from 10am to 4pm on Tuesday, January 23rd at the Park Hotel, Dungarvan and on Wednesday, January 24th at Home Instead Senior Care, Cleaboy Business Park, Old Kilmeaden Road, Waterford.
