Local home care service Walfinch has recruited new carers to help power the expansion of its private client services – and it’s looking for more.
“Our new carers show just how wide an appeal a care career can have,” says Greg Renk, Managing Director of Walfinch Buckinghamshire. “It suits all kinds of people for a wide variety of reasons.
“Amarah recently joined us from a previous role working in residential care homes. She now values being out and about seeing the world and visiting clients in their own homes plus the attraction of shorter more flexible shifts. Rachel has joined us from a cleaning job and another new carer, Iqra, joined our team from a different care company because our pay and conditions are better too.”
Greg, who started the High Wycombe-based Walfinch home care service in December 2020, has built a team of 24 carers, but is looking for more, so Walfinch Bucks can double the number of clients they care for. Demand for private care services in particular has grown since the pandemic, as more people opt for home care over residential homes.
“Private client care visits are becoming more popular because they last a minimum of an hour, so carers have time for a chat, or to take people out for coffee, shopping trips or medical appointments. The time together means that clients and carers can get to know each other better, something that clients with scattered families value in particular,” says Greg.
Greg is looking for more people who are kind, personable, good communicators and keen to benefit their community. He adds: ”We offer a chance to be part of a happy team, who get out and about in their local area and make a real difference.” Full training and ongoing support are provided so you can make a professional career in care.
