The director of a leading homecare provider in Suffolk says more must be done to support those who devote their professional lives to providing much needed homecare.
Loraine Williams-Jasaitis, who has been at the forefront of the sector in East Anglia for the last two decades, says individuals who take up the role of a homecarer are delivering a service which transforms the lives of thousands of service users and their families every year.
Ms Williams-Jasaitis, who owns Angels By Classic (Healthcare at Home) Limited, is to host a special awareness day on Tuesday, December 1, at The Oaksmere, in Brome, near Eye, to raise awareness for people interested in working in the care profession.
The awareness day takes place between 11am and 4pm and Ms Williams-Jasaitis and her team will be on hand to talk to people about the profession.
She said: “My staff are all incredibly devoted to their work in homecare and take their training and development really seriously because they want to be the very best they can be when it comes to delivering care for people requiring such a specialist service.
“We have to remember this can be a testing profession to be in because it involves seeing some emotionally challenging situations, so it’s vital that carers are paid the right wage for their work and that they receive appropriate support at every step of their career path.”
