job centre

Hi all.
After posting my carer vacancy on fb and all my local groups, I’ve hit a wall!
About 20 showed interest, with 3 interviews, 2 no shows and no one suitable, I am now turning to the Job Centre for help.

What a nightmare it is, as many of you know eh?

Hubby isnt to well and my existing carer is taking a well earned holiday soon, so I am reluctantly asking Social Services to put me in a home for the week, if I dont find a new carer.

Great life this MS lark, innit?

Oh Bouds what a nightmare for you I am so sorry I don’t have any advice as to what else you can do.

There are always adverts here for carers but nobody seems to fill the vacancies I just don’t know what the answer is.

Wish I could offer helpful advice but please take care and hopefully your hubby will feel better soon.

Do your social services not have an approved list of carers for you to employ yourself. Or at least agencies who will visit? I know where I live in Notts the last thing they want to do is put someone in a home. I’m not an expert I only do the finance but I have picked up a few things after four year on the job. Good luck with it :hugs:

Bouds, what a dilemma for you.

Just a thought, who do hospitals use for bank nurses, I wonder if they have a list of carers as well?

This may be totally irrelevant but when my children were small I approached the local council for a list of registered private childminders, again I wonder if they have the same for carers.

Sorry, I can’t be of any more help, I hope you get sorted.

Hi Gail. Ii’ve got that list and only 1 out of 5 were suitable.I rang her and told her what I need, but she couldnt fit me in.

Since posting, my local hospice, where I go regulary, rang me as they’ve had a cancellation for the week I need!

There goes God…always blessing me.
