Independent domiciliary care company Ann’s Homecare has now increased its pay from £10.30 p/h to £13p/h following the £23 million investment from the Department of Health and a recent meeting with the Health Minister Robin Swann.
Speaking on their social media Ann’s Homecare said:
“Following the announcement of our new rates (£10.30 – £13) and P𝐚𝐢𝐝 𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐠𝐞 we are reaching out to carers in the community who have recently left the care industry due to poor rates of pay.
We are on the cusp of a massive surge in hospital admissions with record numbers of patients currently blocking much-needed hospital beds as they can’t secure a home care package.
Please get in touch with our recruitment team if you are able to help out, even on a temporary basis.”
