LOCAL home care provider, Home Instead, who are based in Ilkley, are seeking kind-hearted people to join their team of care professionals.

Professional Care Workers’ Week, organised by the care workers’ charity takes place annually from September 12th-16th. To celebrate Home Instead is holding events on the following days: Monday, September 12 - an open afternoon at its Ilkley office, Holiday House, Valley Drive, Ilkley, LS29 8PB from 2pm-6pm; Tuesday, September 13 - pop in for a chat at its Hub in Otley (next to Otley Town Council) from 10am-2pm at Orchard Gate, Otley, LS21 3NX; Thursday, September 15 at Morrisons, Keighley from 11am-1pm.

Carers are trained to the highest standard, including City & Guilds specialist Dementia training, however the company is looking for people who are able to bring a smile to someone’s face and enable the elderly community to live independently at home.

A spokesperson said: “Perhaps you have been caring for a relative, are looking to return to work after a break, or want to work in a truly fulfilling role. If this sounds like you, go along to one of the events to meet the team and find out more about how a role that works around your lifestyle could be your next step.”
