Why Home Care Can Be A Dream Job

Comfort Keepers has a number of vacancies for Home Carers  across Ireland in many of its seventeen offices. Read on to see if a career in Home Care is right for you.

Are you caring?

Are you reliable, punctual and empathetic?

Have you cared for children or older people in the past?

Are you looking for a new career?

Are you studying for a healthcare or social care qualification and would like extra income from work in the evenings or weekends?

Are you looking for a career that might lead onto something else in healthcare?

Do you want to work in a supportive environment?

Do you enjoy spending time with older people?

Are you thinking of going back to work now the children are in school?

Are you considering training for a nurse or occupational therapy in the future?

Would you like to make a difference to the lives of other people?

Do you want to develop a rewarding career?

Maybe you have taken early redundancy or early retirement and would like to work part-time or full-time as a carer?

Maybe you always wanted to be a nurse or work in healthcare but it never quite worked out. Now could be your time for a career in healthcare.

If your answer is yes to some of the questions above, it sounds like working in Home Care could be the perfect new career for you. Jean Bennett, our 2015 Carer of the Year, worked in a factory for many years, and turned to a career in home care about ten years ago.
