A HOME care provider for seniors in Redditch and Bromsgrove has announced plans to recruit 50 caregivers amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

With people aged over 70 being asked to socially distance, Home Instead Senior Care is offering a jobs boost for people as the demand for care services spirals following the outbreak.

Annie Dixon-Dunn, owner of Home Instead Redditch and Bromsgrove said: “We want to throw a lifeline out to people who might have been made redundant or asked to reduce their hours in the wake of the coronavirus.

"The pandemic has caused distress, anxiety and worry to many people, and as a company that cares for the elderly, we need you more than ever.

“Our service is companionship-based so people don’t need to have experience as full training is provided. What’s really important is that people have the right attitude and a caring and empathetic nature.

“We would like to reassure everyone that we are taking all recommended safety measures and are continuing to adhere to government’s advice whilst doing as much as we can to care for our clients.”

People interested in joining are asked to call 01564 741 620 or 01527 810 855, or visit homeinstead.co.uk/redditch-bromsgrove for more information.
