Home Instead Senior Care, which provides care to people in their own homes in Calderdale, has announced the creation of 50 new jobs for the year ahead in a major recruitment drive starting this month.
The need to employ more carers in the area is a reflection of a national trend which is a result of the ageing population.
A recent report from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills has identified the need to recruit more than half a million carers by 2022.
Satinder Salona, of Home Instead, said: “We are receiving more and more calls from local people and family members looking for home care, and our business has grown significantly as a result.
“We consider our fantastic caregivers as everyday superheroes; they are everyday people doing extraordinary work.
“Whether they are providing companionship care, preparing meals, or helping with daily living routines, they are making a difference to the lives of the elderly.
“For people with no prior experience, we provide a full training programme so anyone who is interested in a rewarding career in the growing sector should get in touch. It is the unique and high quality, personal service that has allowed us to grow so quickly and create these jobs in the local area.”
