Many people have preconceived ideas about what caring for the elderly is all about.

We understand that being a CAREGiver can be a rewarding role but can often introduce stresses and pressures which might leave you feeling low and vulnerable to changing situations, family matters and work patterns. This is a natural response and yet all too often people do not know who to turn to or have access to extra help and support when it is needed.

We held our FIRST ever #youcanca...re week March 12th – 16th, to raise awareness of what it’s really like to work as a CAREGiver for older people and the HUGE rewards that come with it.

Caring goes beyond bed baths and helping the person with going to the toilet. It’s about making a connection with a person and being their companion. At Home Instead, it doesn’t matter what type of work you’ve been in previously or what training or qualifications you have as full training is provided. Instead, it’s about the right personality and attitude.

Get involved! Use the hashtags and share your inspirational stories about caring for an older person or ask us any questions you may have about working in care.
