|Up to 30 new jobs are being created in Stevenage, Letchworth, Hitchin and surrounding areas, staffing a quality homecare service that supports independent living.
Right at Home Stevenage, Letchworth and Hitchin will provide highly personalised care services for older people and adults living with disabilities.
Owner and Managing Director, Kurt Gunthardt, is in the process of building a team of compassionate, committed, and highly-trained CareGivers to deliver great support and companionship services within people’s homes.
Kurt – who has lived locally for over 10 years, is married and has two daughters and was previously in a senior position within the Motor Industry – said: “I decided to open Right at Home Stevenage, Letchworth and Hitchin after I saw for myself, the impact top quality in-home care that promotes people’s independence and is delivered in the ‘right way’ – with dignity and respect, had on a member of my own family’s well-being. I could also see that there was a growing demand for a reliable high quality home care company locally”.
“This approach is entrenched in our ethos of delivering highly personalised care, with a minimum of one-hour visits and with a continuity of regular CareGivers who build lasting relationships with their Clients and their families, offering companionship and emotional support as well as physical and practical assistance.”
Kurt said his business will pride itself on investing in its staff to ensure they have the skills and tools to deliver high quality care to its clients across the region.
“This is not a minimum wage role,” he said. “We’re looking for people with a dedicated and reliable approach, who take pride in helping others and are looking for a rewarding job role where they will be valued and well-supported.
“Applicants do not need to have previous experience in the care sector, as all our staff complete a comprehensive training package, which includes as much mentoring and shadowing as they need, in order to feel confident supporting Clients in their homes.
“We are looking for both full time and part time additions to the team and will strive to offer regular yet flexible working hours, as well as opportunities to build a career in quality care.”
The private care at home market is growing fast, due to the ageing population, people’s desire to carry on living in their own homes as long as possible and the growing pressure on services delivered by Social Services.
