A HOME care company with offices in Stirling has launched a large recruitment drive.

Home Instead Senior Care has launched the drive due to an increase in demand for live-in care services since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak.

The company is looking to recruit 50 live-in caregivers and 200 regular caregivers over the next twelve months to satisfy demand.

Suhail and Tasnim Rehman, owners of Home Instead commented: “We are committed to providing high-quality at-home care for seniors, for which we have seen enquiries sky-rocket over the past couple of months throughout all of our offices.

“Lockdown has demonstrated the benefits of elderly people continuing to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible, with our home care services aiding this.

“We are looking to recruit 250 new caregivers over the next 12 months.

“Many people who have been made redundant in the current climate could consider a career-change to caring.

“We have had people from all walks of life and all sectors including aviation, retail, hospitality and customer services applying, but they one thing they all have in common is their love of caring and their desire to provide the best possible service to our clients.”
