A HOME care company has relaunched a campaign to get more people caring for the elderly, as demand for its services continues to grow.

Following the success of last year’s campaign, ‘You Can Care’, Home Instead Senior Care, which is based in Weston-super-Mare, is looking to recruit 30 caregivers to join its team.

Mike Keig, owner of Home Instead Weston Super Mare, said: “This campaign is important to us because it will show just how much of an impact every CAREGiver can make and what a rewarding career care giving can be when you work for a company that, well, cares.

"We also like to think of the hashtag as a show of support and solidarity with the hundreds of unpaid carers looking after loved ones in our local area. We’ll be using it to share information and resources too.

"We are continuing to build our team with kind and compassionate people who want to make a difference to the elderly in the local community.”

Mr Keig said the company saw an upsurge in the number of people wanting to join the care sector after last year's campaign and said he hopes more people will join the team this year.

Shannen Cox, a caregiver for Home Instead, said: “The clients I go to visit have been matched to me and we have built up a great relationship, it’s so nice to visit them daily and keep them company and make them smile, as a lot of the time we are the only person they see on a daily basis.

"It’s a rewarding job, not without challenges, but it’s all worthwhile when you see the positive impact you have made on the people you visit.”
