More than 100 jobs will be created at a Fylde coast care company.
Home Instead Senior Care, which provides care to people in their own homes in Fylde and Wyre, has announced plans to create 110 new jobs for the year ahead in a major recruitment drive starting this month.
Sophie Hoyle, owner of Home Instead, said: “We are receiving more and more calls from local people and family members looking for home care, and our business has grown significantly as a result.
“We consider our fantastic caregivers as everyday superheroes; they are everyday people doing extraordinary work. Whether they are providing companionship care, preparing meals, or helping with daily living routines, they are making a difference to the lives of the elderly.”
The need to employ more carers is a reflection of a national trend which is a result of the ageing population.
A recent report from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills has identified the need to recruit over half a million carers by 2022.
The report also listed caring as one of the careers of the future.
A hundred of the jobs are care roles, five are for senior carers and five are office roles based at the Home Instead office in Whitehills Business Park, Blackpool.
Miss Hoyle added: “For people with no prior experience, we provide a full training programme so anyone who is interested in a rewarding career in the growing sector should get in touch.”
