Colchester: At-home care company to create 40 new jobs

A COMPANY specialising in at-home care for the elderly is set to create 40 jobs in the next six months.

Julie Price, who runs Home Instead Senior Care in Colchester, has not yet been in business for a year but is already on the hunt for 40 new caregivers to join her existing team.

Home Instead is a national network of at-home care providers and Julie has been operating the service in the Colchester area for the past nine months.

She says the expansion of the team reflects the high level of demand for the company’s services.

“With Colchester’s ageing population, caring for the elderly is a very important issue and we have found many people are grateful to learn that we offer a realistic ‘stay at home’ option,” she said.

“As the word continues to spread, we have gained many new clients in the area, and as a result we are actively looking to recruit around 40 new caregivers before summer 2012.

“Although our existing caregivers come from a hugely varied background, the one thing they have in common is that they all have a real passion for helping others and caring for people in our local community. We provide all the necessary training and are a friendly, supportive team so professional experience is not essential.”
