Doncaster care company to create 100 new jobs

A Doncaster-based nursing and home care company is looking to create up to 100 new jobs in the town as demand for its services continues to grow.

Prestige Nursing + Care is seeking to recruit care staff to provide home-based personal care and support services to the elderly and people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, dementia, terminal illnesses, acquired brain injury and spinal injuries.

Managing Director Mike Dooley said: “With a national drive by the Government to keep people in their homes for as long as possible we are seeing an increased demand for our services, so we now need to recruit the staff to allow us to meet this demand.

“We can meet the needs of all client groups, whether that is an elderly person just requiring an hour’s worth of companionship once a week, through to providing 24-hour-a-day nursing care to someone with very complex needs.

“We are also getting more requests from other organisation to provide care and nursing staff. Not only does this save them money because the staff are employed by us, they know they are getting very highly qualified and trained people who can hit the ground running and make a real contribution to their operation.

Mr Dooley added: “It is fantastic that we are in a position to recruit when the economy is still struggling, but we do place great emphasis on the quality of our care and nursing staff.

“All staff seeking to join us need to pass over 20 different checks and are then subject to on-going training and supervision to ensure we deliver the very highest standard or person-centred care to our clients.”
