Clare Janik increases our presence in South Africa
The MD of Corinium Care is heading to South Africa to hold seminars with caregivers, past and present.
Clare Janik runs the live-in care agency which provides care to elderly and disabled people in their own homes in the UK. Many of its registered carers come from South Africa.
She will be hosting three seminars about caregiving in the UK in Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town between June 13 and 20. Alongside her will be the company’s agent in South Africa, Lindy Wareing.
“Corinium Care has had a close relationship with South Africa since its formation in 1995 and it’s important that we maintain those links,” said Clare.
“It’s an opportunity to meet and thank some of the wonderful carers who have been with Corinium Care for many years. They are fantastic ambassadors for the caring profession.”
The award-winning company is one of the leading care agencies in Britain. It has 17 staff and more than 800 registered carers providing care for people in their own homes. Its South Africa recruitment office is in the Eastern Cape.
The aim of the seminars is to explain to potential carers what the role entails.
Past and current carers with Corinium Care will be on hand to answer questions. Most are women, aged 45-60, whose children have left home and who want to travel or visit relatives in Britain. An increasing number of younger women are also looking at care work as a career option.
“The people who join us from South Africa are hard-working, kind and compassionate. For many caring is a new career and a new start in life with a reliable source of income,” said Clare.
The company’s agent in South Africa, Lindy Wareing, began her career with Corinium Care as a carer in the UK.
“I know how it feels to travel half way across the world and face a whole new experience so I can tell potential carers what the job is like,” said Lindy.
Corinium’s carers from South Africa usually spend three to six months in the UK. All registered carers take part in Corinium Care’s free, award-winning, five-day training programme in the UK which includes personal care, dementia care, recognising signs of abuse, and moving and handling.
All who attend the seminars must have eligibility to work in the UK. The seminar dates are: Durban (June 13), Port Elizabeth (June 18) and Cape Town (June 20).
