At Home Instead Senior Care Upper North Shore we read with interest the Careers article by Paul Di Michiel in Effective job searching for the over 40’s”. We agreed with the seven tips to ‘negate the mature-age effect’ but strongly endorse promoting relevant life experiences in application and on interview.
Home Instead Senior Care provides quality in-home care and companionship to support and help older people live independently at home. We value life experience, compassion, empathy and maturity when recruiting.
We are a local business with CAREGivers who are from a variety of cultures, experiences and backgrounds. Many of our CAREGivers are now working in aged care as a choice, they have decided after many years in other careers to look for a rewarding and fulfilling new role in the community. Our CAREGivers have diverse backgrounds such as teaching, accountancy, architecture, the police force, and many more varied professions. Some of our CAREGivers are also returning to work after raising families or have been primary carers for their own parents and are enjoying the flexibility and rewarding aspect of this new role in CAREGiving.
One of our CAREGivers recently commented working as a CAREGiver ‘had changed my life in the best way, I now value every day’’.
You can call us and even talk to one of our CAREGivers. We provide ongoing training and support and flexibility to work day, evening, overnight and weekend shifts with 24-hour office support. Call our Recruitment and Training Officer Cathy to find out more on 9980 2226 or email [email protected] for an application form.
