Sue Ryder care group open Stirling office

MUCH-NEEDED jobs could be created in the Stirlingshire area following the news that a homecare charity has established a base in the region.

Those behind the Sue Ryder charity opened an office in Stirling’s Wallace House approximately three months ago.

And Dana Conlon, a locally-based interim homecare manager, told the Observer that they are on the lookout for carers to assist in delivering crucial services throughout the area, in conjunction with Stirling Council.

Although unable to confirm the number of people her organisation were looking to recruit, she said: “We’ll provide all the necessary training. Carers will have a chance to complete a SVQ qualification in health and social care.

“I’ve been working for Sue Ryder for over nine years. I was first drawn to it when I started a course at college relating to health and social care. I thought it would be good experience for me to work while I was completing the course.

“I bonded with the people I cared for. I soon discovered that this job was more than just a way to pay bills.”

Dana continued: “We’re absolutely delighted to be extending our service into Stirling. Most people want to carry on living in their own home surrounded by their family and loved ones, and we work hard to try to make this possible.

“We’re committed to building partnerships alongside local health and social care services – as well as district nurses and GPs – to ensure people’s personal care needs are met.”
