The need for care is growing rapidly - there are over 11 million people in the UK who are aged 65 and over.
That amounts to 17.83 per cent of the nation’s total population! It is also estimated that there will be over 6 million people in the UK with a disability by 2030, as well as over 15 million people aged 65 or over.
Clarriots Care provides high quality yet affordable home care to elderly people and other vulnerable members of society, to help them stay independent and enjoy life whilst remaining in the comfort of their own homes.
Care is often said to be one of the most satisfying and enriching jobs a person can do. You can enable other people to live their lives to the fullest, where before they could not. Maybe an elderly man has lost his wife, and is looking for some friendly companionship to bring some sunshine back into his day – or a young woman has damaged her legs in a car accident and needs some help around the house while she recuperates. There are so many people who need somebody in this world, and you could be the one to be there for them, to really make a difference when it matters most.
“Being a carer was one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. It meant so much to me that I could help my clients go about their everyday lives with a smile on their face” Amy Pickering, Assistant Care Manager, Clarriots Care Lincolnshire North
Aside from the immense sense of satisfaction one gets from being a carer, there are numerous other benefits to pursuing home care as a career.
Home caring is often thought to be low paid, low skilled job – Clarriots Care feels that this is an unfair thing to say. One of their carers recently took home £2700 in one month! Carers are required to know how to effectively deal with a range of different situations – depending on the client, some could even be an emergency. The work that carers do is truly amazing.
As the market for care expands, new career opportunities are opening up all the time. At Clarriots Care, they have a fantastic in-depth training program which teaches everything you need to know to become a first class carer. Don’t worry, there is no experience required. You just need to be enthusiastic about helping people and have a big heart!
“This was a very informative and a great introduction to Clarriots Care, the training delivered was very easy to understand and a very good session about the essential components of CQC. I have really enjoyed the format of the sessions and this training has linked very well to my role.” Melissa Navin, Clarriots Care Milton Keynes.
As of January 2016, the unemployment rate in Lincolnshire was 25.6 per cent - that’s below the rate of London. Clarriots Care is currently undertaking a national recruitment drive, to combat unemployment in this country, train people up in an important profession and get people back into work. We are big believers in giving back to our local community.
