Print Story | Email Story

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Home Instead plans to hire more than ten positions due to rising need for senior care.

With more area seniors and families seeking support, Home Instead in Pittsfield is looking to fill more than ten permanent CAREGiver positions immediately in the area.  
 
"The demand for home care has grown exponentially over the last several years—and it continues to grow as more seniors isolate because of the pandemic," said Donna Smith, owner of the Pittsfield Home Instead office. "Hospitals and clinics are overwhelmed. Professional caregivers can serve as an extension of the healthcare system and play a critical role in keeping vulnerable Berkshire County seniors safe and healthy at home." 
 
The local franchise is offering a $1200 sign-on bonus to qualified applicants in Berkshire County through January. Interested applicants can learn more about caregiving, as well as benefits including health insurance, 401K, and paid time off, by visiting HomeInstead.com/Careers. 
 
 
From assisting with personal care and preparing meals, to running errands and providing companionship, CAREGivers help seniors with simple tasks that enable them to remain in their homes. The role is ideal for individuals seeking long-term job stability with a flexible schedule and supportive environment as well as continued opportunities for career growth.  
 
"Caregiving is simply doing things to enhance the quality of life for older adults and help keep them independent for as long as possible," said Smith. "We like to say that it takes a special person to become a Home Instead CAREGiver…not a special degree. It can be a rewarding career for individuals from every walk of life and age group."
 
Additional growth in the industry is expected for years to come. According to the United Nations, the global population over the age of 65 is expected to triple to 426 million by the year 2050. As a result of this rapid population shift, there will be an increased need for passionate and dedicated individuals in the industries that support the needs of older adults.
