Becoming a professional carer is sometimes seen as a young person’s career. In the media, nurses are mostly portrayed as young women. At Supreme Home Care, they are determined to bust this myth. They are launching a campaign to attract more mature people to consider care as a second (or even third) career.
Amy Hutchings, Registered Care Manager said ‘We think older workers have a lot to offer us. They may not have done care before as a job but they will have had a lot of experience of life and that is very relevant in our profession. If you have brought up a family or cared for a relative these are all life experiences that you would be bringing with you. We think by offering flexible part time work, to fit around family commitments, we are offering the perfect opportunity for people to provide a valuable service to our clients whilst easing themselves into semi-retirement.’
‘Supreme Home Care is ‘age blind’ as far as recruitment is concerned’, said Sue Robson the Company Director. ‘As long people have the right attitude to care and are reasonably fit, our comprehensive induction programme will train and support them to become great, professional carers. We see working for us as a carer as being a job for the rest of your working life’.
If you want to know more, Supreme Home Care is planning a launch event on Tuesday 30th January starting at 11am at their offices at 6 Pearson Rd, Central Park, Telford. If you are interested, then please call 01952 216700 or complete the from below to book your place at this event.
