Caregiving at Christmas

21-Dec-15

Christmas can mean different things to different people. While someone might be looking forward to festive season and the cheer it brings, others do not like the noise and bright lights, and some people will unfortunately find themselves alone at Christmas.

Home Instead have witnessed firsthand the effect that loneliness can have on someone at any time of the year, and they know that it doesn’t take much to help brighten someone’s day. Home Instead's CAREGivers provide a range of different services to help support people in their own home, and maintain their independence, but one of the most valuable things they provide is companionship.

Home Instead Swansea has been providing home care services in the local area for years, and know that there are many amazing people in the Swansea area that make wonderful CAREGivers. Home Instead have loved getting to know each and every one of their CAREGivers, and learning about their lives, experiences, and all the things that make them unique. It is these wonderful people that make their clients feel happy, supported and independent.

Home Instead are always on the lookout for more amazing people from all across the Swansea to come on board as part of their award winning team of CAREGivers. As a CAREGiver, not only will you be able to get to know a number of interesting and unique people, but you will also find incredible job satisfaction in knowing that the little things you do each day will help them enormously.

• 92% of their CAREGivers would recommend Home Instead as a place to work.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that you need to have a few relevant qualifications or years of experience in the care sector in order to work as a CAREGiver. Home Instead value kindness and compassion above all else; being friendly, caring, and personable isn’t something that can be taught, and they believe that there is a CAREGiver inside almost anyone.

Not only do Home Instead offer an incredibly rewarding career, but they also provide their CAREGivers with ongoing opportunities to learn new skills and gain new qualifications while working. The flexible working hours are complemented with City & Guilds accredited Alzheimer’s training, which was designed by Alzheimer’s and dementia experts, and only offered exclusively by Home Instead in Wales.

• 94% of CAREGivers say that their job gives them the opportunity to learn and develop new skills.

Home Instead's care services are entirely relationship-led, and nothing is more important than ensuring that their clients care remains at the very centre of what they do. They also know that they can’t maintain their excellent levels of home care without their amazing CAREGivers. Home Instead are happy to work side by side with them every day, and always look forward to meeting more potential CAREGivers and seeing the lasting bonds of friendship they build with their clients.

Christmas is traditionally a time for giving, as well as a time for change. If you are thinking about giving something back this year, or making a New Year’s resolution to find a way to help people, then you might like to think about becoming a CAREGiver – you already sound like someone Home Instead want to meet!
