home instead 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (4/23/13) – The Home Instead Senior Care office serving Owensboro, Henderson and much of western Kentucky announced this week it expects to add 100 CAREGivers to its existing staff in 2013.
 
The local company’s anticipated growth is a key indicator of the increasing demand for home care professionals and the strength of the industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of personal care aides is expected to grow by 70 percent from 2010 to 2020, much faster than the average for all occupations.
 
“The rate of aging adults is increasing faster than the economy, and talented caregivers are in great demand,” said Stephen Bryson, owner of the local Home Instead Senior Care office.
 
The majority of the positions will be part time, offering great flexibility to those managing busy schedules.
 
The growth of the Home Instead Senior Care franchise network is particularly good news for older Americans searching for second careers. Franchisees anticipate mature workers will fill many of the job openings. Currently, about 30 percent of the network’s employees are 60 and older. For many, serving as a Home Instead CAREGiver helps them fulfill personal desires to give back, while offering job flexibility frequently sought by retirees. Many part-time opportunities are available for those seeking to stay active professionally, at reduced hours.

“We aim to provide quality, compassionate care to our senior clients and to do that, we need qualified, ambitious and caring individuals to serve as our CAREGivers,” Bryson said.

Home Instead CAREGiver positions also represent viable career paths for younger Americans who want to help others or pursue healthcare careers. Personal experiences inspired a large number of the current employees to pursue caregiving careers.
