New care business looking to recruit

Tim Roe, Home Instead Truro

The newly-opened Truro office of home care company, Home Instead Senior Care, is looking to create 50 jobs in the coming year.

Tim Roe, who set up the new operation based in Threemilestone, is keen to talk to local people who are interested in working with elderly people and stresses that they don’t need to have experience in the care sector but they may well be someone who has experience looking after a relative or friend.

Roe has relocated to the area to set up the business. His previous career was in market research but he was looking for a new role that would allow him to become involved with, and give something back to, the local community.

He said: “My wife’s family is Cornish and the majority of her relations live here, they are a farming family. We know the area really well, and we have spent a lot of time in and around Truro over the years. When we finally moved in December, along with our two children, I have to say that we all felt as if we had arrived home.”

Home Instead is rapidly building a reputation as one of the UK’s leading care companies. Its service is tailored to the needs of individual clients and ranges from companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, post-discharge care, medication reminders, shopping and errands. The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
