A leading Welsh care provider is on a mission to change the image of the care industry and says it shouldn’t be viewed as a deskilled industry with poor working practices.

Abacare which provides care around the Powys area, says many of its staff say working in care is a vocation and they enjoy their role tremendously. 

Peter Angelides, CEO of Abacare, said: “We are facing an ageing population where many more carers will be required. Working in care is a rewarding and fulfilling role and one where a carer may be the only personal contact someone receives each day. 

“The myth that carers are often portrayed as being down beat, stressed and as having low self-esteem is often very far from the truth as our carers do not feel this way at all. The myths seem to come from people on the outside. From speaking with the carers we employ, many of them say working in care is a vocation and something they enjoy

“If you work for us you can earn more than £500 per week, are paid travel time and mileage between calls and, subject to terms and conditions, can work the hours that suit you, whether you want a contract that’s zero hours, 16, 24 or 30. 

"Flexibility is key and we can offer work at weekends, in evenings and have both part and full-time vacancies available.

“We provide all our staff full paid training and shadowing before they start, and they have additional, on the job support from a local team 24/7. We give free uniforms and a national staff discount scheme for all major brands.

“Offering Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF), formerly known as National Vocational Qualifications, and career advancement opportunities means we have a highly trained, motivated and appreciated team. 

"Anyone who joins us can reach QCF level 2 with our support and we’re urging anyone thinking of changing their job, or getting back into the work force again, to get in touch as soon as possible and not to miss out on this fantastic career opportunity. We have jobs available in the area now with immediate start, no experience necessary just a willingness to care and to learn.

Abacare operates a professional Care Management Team that is committed to providing high quality care to individuals in their own homes.

The large team of trained, specialist, care workers provide positive based outcomes and person-centred care to people throughout the UK.  

Abacare was named Britain’s ‘Most Outstanding Care Agency’ at the UK Over 50s Housing Awards in 2014 and 2015 as well as securing the title in the same category at this year’s Global Over 50s Housing Awards.
