Well, sadly the summer is coming to an end but the children are back to school. We are all getting very worried about the cost of living. Latest reports say things are going to get worse, it’s very difficult to know what to do.
All I know is that if you have been a home carer then this is the time to return to the industry. Your skills are desperately needed. The rates and benefits are very good and calls are arranged around your family demands. On average our daily carers are bringing home £300 per week for just a 20-hour week.
Increase in demand for care
As you can imagine, there is a huge demand for care in the home, more than ever before. Of course people really want to stay living in their own home for as long as possible, especially after all the issues with the pandemic. They feel safer and of course benefit from having familiar things around, and their families and friends can visit whenever they want.
All they need is the right support so they can still maintain their dignity and some independence. Who would deny them that?
As always, we are here to help
For 56 years we have always put the needs of the elderly and vulnerable at the forefront of our business. My mother, Leila Potter, who recently passed away, instilled this in me and I passionately believe in what we do to help others. However, we can only do this with the support of our experienced and dedicated carers. You are the key to making a difference to somebody else’s life and you are desperately needed.
I know the effects of the pandemic has turned many of you away from your vocation but you are very special people. Not everyone could do your job. Our clients need you back so we can give the support and companionship to the many people out there who have been left to manage on their own.
