Lynn-based Jark Home Care and Health Care is delighted with the success of its first employees to gain qualifications in home care.
The four carers Catia Oliveria, Egle Januskaite, Carla Menichas and Sharon Whaley, are the first to receive training in home care with Jark, of Blackfriars Street, which has just embarked on providing a home care service. The business already has a well-established health care service.
Jark Home Care manager Allison Cooper said: “They have blossomed on the training course and Jark trainer Julie Mayhew said they were the brightest group of trainees she had had – brilliant girls.
“Catia and Carla are from Portugal and Egle is from Lithuania whilst Sharon is home-grown Lynn. They will be going out to work with clients in the immediate Lynn area supplying companionship, personal care and support to elderly people in the community. As their manager I have complete admiration for their keeness and their willingness to learn.”
Jark Home Care and Health Care are looking to recruit new care and support workers in the wider Lynn Area. The agency provides extensive and ongoing training to health-related staff, including enrolment on the nationally recognised care certificate and invites them to undertake CQS (NVQ) in health and social care which are also nationally recognised qualifications.
Jark is holding an open day at its offices on Wednesday, March 30, in order to recruit more workers between 10 am and 2pm. Jark offer fast track DBS (criminal record bureau checks).
