Up to 50 jobs are being created in Bishop’s Waltham, staffing a new homecare service that supports independent living.

Homecare provider Right at Home Mid Hampshire is opening a second office in Bishop’s Waltham to extend its care services for older people and adults living with disabilities within the area.

Managing director Nick Turner and his workforce are in the process of building a team of trained CareGivers to deliver everything from personal care, companionship, and errand services, through to 24-hour live-in care within people’s own homes. The expansion is expected to provide around 50 new jobs.

The Bishop’s Waltham office is the second in Nick’s portfolio and will be supported by the CQC-rated ‘Outstanding’ parent business Right at Home Mid Hampshire.

Nick has successfully run Right at Home Mid Hampshire for eight years and wanted to expand his network to support more people in the region.

Right at Home Mid Hampshire said it prides itself on investing in its staff, ensuring that all carers receive above the National Living Wage. Recently, the business also helped to address the issue of rising fuel costs by compensating workers with an increased mileage rate as well as reimbursing care workers for their travel time, which for many is a significant part of their earnings.

Nick said: “It’s amazing for us to have the opportunity to open an office in Bishop’s Waltham. We have a number of clients in the area, but we have also been painfully aware that there is not yet enough care provision locally. It’s very important to us that every person should be able to remain in their own homes for as long as they wish, and we’re honestly delighted to undertake this new project with enormous enthusiasm and compassion.

“We’re really excited to welcome more local people to our growing team. Applicants do not need to have previous experience in the care sector, as all CareGivers complete a comprehensive training package. This includes as much mentoring and shadowing as they need, to help them feel confident supporting Clients in their homes.”

The new office will mainly supply private care, but also continue to work with the NHS and Hampshire County Council.

Whilst already running, the new office will have its official opening on July 22.
