There’s no age limit for a career in care

More people than ever are working into their fifties, sixties and beyond, which is a positive reflection of our ageing society.

We fully appreciate the value that older workers bring, including career and general life experience, and we understand that many of them are looking for more flexible work to fit around their lifestyles, which is why we welcome the more mature worker and believe care is a great career option for them.

Our Operations Executive, Betty Sidwell, joined us at the age of 52 after moving to Wales when she was 51.

She said: “Who would have thought that at the age of 52 I would be living my dream, a total change of career, working with the most amazing, incredible team supporting our awe inspiring clients.

“Since joining Abacare the smile has returned to my face and the air is filled with my laughter. I can truly say I am happy and looking forward to the future.”

Here we treat all our carers and office staff the same, whatever their age. As long as your kind, committed and caring, you’ll fit right in. We can provide flexible working hours to fit around your lifestyle, so if you need to look after grandchildren or just want to work a minimum amount of hours per-week, that’s no problem.

You’re also never too old to learn and we offer free, full training, which includes a company induction, dementia awareness, enablement, first aid, health and safety, food safety, infection control, medication, person centred care and moving and handling service users, and for anyone who is committed and passionate about care, we also offer the opportunity to undertake qualifications too.

If you’re interested in a career in care with us, whatever your age, then get in touch.
