Growth for Mears Care Hounslow

With care at home services growing in demand in Hounslow, Mears is expanding and looking to recruit more staff over the next few months. Mears provides services on contract to the London Borough of Hounslow and supports people of all ages with a wide range of care needs. Services are also provided, on a private basis, to those who want to augment the care they receive through the council, or have other requirements for support.With the number of retired people in Hounslow expected to increase, care at home services are more vital than ever before, and can help to support older people to live in their own homes rather than in long-term residential care.Rose Wilson, Branch Manager for Mears in Hounslow, said: “The increasing number of people requiring support means that demand for home care services is growing at an extraordinary rate, with more and more families realising that this is a viable and affordable alternative to residential care, or nursing homes.“This is exactly where we fit in. Our employees support people with some of the everyday tasks we all take for granted, such as bathing, shopping, domestic chores and cooking meals. But companionship is also important, as sometimes a care worker might be the only person one of our clients sees during the day.“We’re delighted to be expanding in Hounslow, in order to meet growing demand for these services, and would be happy to hear from people who think they might have the right skills to work for us.”Mears offers flexible working patterns which employees can fit around their own availability, and as such, it is looking for a range of full-time and part-time workers. Although previous experience is welcomed, Mears provides a full training programme in addition to ongoing support with the opportunity for career progression. Mearsis looking for staff from Hounslow and the surrounding areas. Care workers range widely in age, from 18 to over 65, and come from all walks of life. Care and support is generally provided on a one-to-one basis, and those who work with Mears derive great job satisfaction which comes from a genuine interest in working with people.Anyone interested in working for Mears in Hounslow can get in touch by calling Kevin Kidd on 0208 987 2336 or email kevin.kidd@mearsgroup.co.uk.
