Home care service opens in Maidenhead

A newly-opened company specialising in home care for the elderly looks set to create dozens of job vacancies in Maidenhead.

A branch of care franchise Home Instead opened on Monday last week in Cookham Road and is looking for people to join its team.

Home Instead is a non-medical service which provides at-home care tailored to individual needs.

Visits are for a minimum of one hour and are largely focused on providing companionship.

Care manager Kerry Huggett described the ideal candidate as a slightly older person with an interest in working flexible hours in a caring capacity.

Training will be given and while experience is not essential the role might for example suit someone who has cared for a relative in the past.

The branch, which also serves Henley and Wallingford, has been set up by Chalfont St Giles resident and father-of-two Paul Westgarth.

It is hoped that within three or four years there could be up to 100 staff in the team.
