Home Instead Hiring Week offers 1,000 opportunities to build a career in care

Home Instead Hiring Week takes place in Westmeath from Monday February 20 to Friday February 24

Home Instead, Ireland’s largest private provider of home care services, has launched Home Instead Hiring Week, a national campaign of events taking place over the week of February 20-24, that aims to hire 1,000 professional caregivers to join its nearly 4,000-strong team.

Home is the preferred option for the majority of older people as they age, and the preferred option for their families.

Home provides comfort, independence and familiarity, leading to better healthcare outcomes that ultimately positively impact on the quality of life of the person being cared for.

Professionally trained caregivers give valuable support to ageing adults and play a critical role in the healthcare system by assisting them to live safe and well at home.

Lorraine McLaughlin, general manager, Home Instead Westmeath, said: “The professional CAREGiver role is ideal for caring and compassionate individuals who are seeking job stability with a flexible schedule and a supportive environment as well as continued opportunities for career progression.

“We like to say that it takes a special person to become a professional Home Instead CAREGiver – and a desire to share their talents and skills with those they care for.

“It is a rewarding career for individuals from every walk of life and age group. Our teams are looking forward to meeting those interested in a meaningful career in home care at our events during Home Instead Hiring Week.

“We are a great company to work for, and have a culture steeped in values. We would not be where we are today without our exceptional employees.”

All Home Instead caregivers are provided training through Home Instead’s unique Home Care Professionals Academy, which gives access to modern content and practical training.

Caregivers receive recognition through award programmes, appreciation initiatives and social events. Thanks to the culture of support, caregivers feel a deep sense of belonging that they are part of a professional, compassionate and winning team that makes a difference in the lives of ageing adults every day.
