110 more care and nursing agency staff needed by Sunshine Care05/01/2012
Sunshine Care is delighted to announce that they intend to recruit 110 more people in the next two months, going against recent reports of a considerable drop in recruitment opportunities.
Due to the significant expansion of their home care services across the South West region, together with the growth of their dementia care and end-of–life care services, Sunshine Care need to recruit 85 new care and support workers in the New Year.
In addition to this, 25 more nursing agency staff are required to cater for the growth in demand for their complex care and 24-hour live-in care services. These will be recruited over the next few weeks.
“Chronic diseases, most of which are preventable, are one of the main reasons health care costs have soared over the past several decades. Investing in our social care workforce will strengthen the role that wellness and prevention play in our health care system," commented Paul Constantine, Director of Sunshine Care.
Paul continued: “We offer excellent training that meets Skills for Care standards and aim to provide low-income individuals with education, training and supportive supervision services that will help them prepare to enter and advance in careers in the healthcare sector.”
Sunshine Care in co-operation with its partners in the NHS and Social Service departments, is seeking to expand the use of supported living, domiciliary care, day care and assistive technologies as alternatives to residential accommodation, focusing on rehabilitation and independent living.
In tandem with the modernisation of acute hospital services there is a need to expand the range of care services that can be delivered in the community.
