Those who Work in Homecare are Set to Get a 17% Pay Rise

Do you work in homecare, private nursing, in the social workers sector or even in mental health? If so, then you may be entitled to a pay rise. If you know anything about the bespoke care packages that are currently being advertised by the government then you will know that a lot of them centre around the promise of an increased rate of pay. Now it would seem that this is finally coming to fruition. Care workers who work in Devon are going to see their pay rise by 17%. It’s going to support those who work in the Bluebird Care sector, and it may also apply to those who are in Exeter and Exmouth as well. The idea is to try and offer an inflation-beating wage in an attempt to attract way more assistants in the industry. They are currently dealing with a number of workforce shortages. They have since been rated as being outstanding by the CQC and they have hopes to try and deliver home care visits. They also want to try and deliver more live-in care as well.

Some say that being a care assistant is quite possibly the most rewarding part of their job as it gives them the chance to help people every single day. The pay increase is to try and motivate people to stay in the industry while also trying to encourage new people to join it. A lot of people are incredibly fortunate to have this kind of opportunity and they believe that it will work wonders for staff morale. It will also help to sustain the industry for the future as well which is very interesting to say the least. This should also help to combat the workforce shortage that is happening right now.
