Do you know of a nurse looking for a new career or due to retire soon? County Care Berkshire are recruiting for carers and those with a nursing background looking for a new career setting can be a great match for us. 
According to a recent study in Australia*, nurses are the least likely to leave their careers to start in an entirely different industry. In all likelihood, if they do leave nursing, they will stay in a career where they can continue to provide care in some way. 
For nurses in the UK, there are many vacancies on offer in the NHS at various levels. However, the working hours can be a reason that many leave after having a family or upon approaching retirement. A hospital environment might not suit everyone either, it’s a stressful role and for some it doesn’t provide as much opportunity for helping people as care work does. Nursing is a vocation and as such, the desire to provide care is the overriding reason to choose the profession. However, if the environment in a hospital doesn’t suit, caring in a home environment can offer a very enjoyable alternative. 
Without actively maintaining fitness and strength, day to day tasks can become increasingly difficult to carry out. A sedentary lifestyle in later life can produce major health implications, affecting everything from our bones, mobility and even eyesight.

There are times in your life when you just need a bit of extra support and Count Care Berkshire can lend a belong hand. We offer respite care services which can make a great deal of difference in our clients lives. 
There are a number of situations in which we can help: 
When the pressure of caring for a family member increases due to failing health, a carer can be overwhelmed with decision making, organising changes, the physical demands of caring etc. They are reluctant to have a break for fear of the situation worsening. There can sometimes also be anxiety around how well someone else can provide the care they feel is needed. 
After a medical operation, a patient needs time to recover their strength and emotional energy. They may need someone to take over household chores for a short while. Good nutrition is essential for boosting recovery. 
Falls tend to become more common with ageing, particularly if there is a decrease in physical activity. Respite care after a fall can be a perfect solution. 
Illness can leave a patient feeling vulnerable, isolated and lonely. A respite career coming in to provide light household duties, light meals and companionship can aid recovery time and build confidence. 
For those whose families live far away, having someone in for a few hours can be a lifeline. Knowing a family member is being looked after by a reliable, caring agency means they can get on with finding a longer term solution in the interim without the stress of long distance monitoring.

County Care Berkshire is an independent home care provider in Windsor supporting adults and children to remain in their own homes with dignity and confidence. 
County Care Berkshire raised almost £500 recently for 'Headway' which is a charity supporting people with brain injury. As a team we ran 5km (all dressed in very glowing colours) in the dark at Dorney Lake. It was a beautiful evening and safe to say we were all glowing by the end of it! We are delighted to support this charity and it gives us a chance to have a bit of team fun at the same time! 
Due to our continued growth and expansion of County Care Berkshire, we have now recruited Patrick Humphries to our existing team of Field supervisors and Stacy Mguyo as Recruitment, Training and Compliance Manager. 
With County Care Berkshire already having raised over £1000 for Dementia charities, Carolyn Jarvis; Director of Operations, can still be found singing for the national charity ‘Singing for the Brain’. 
County Care Berkshire has a growing reputation for providing excellent palliative care for people with life limiting conditions. 
There are many benefits to receiving care services in your own home. 
The most important aspect of homecare services is that you get to remain in your own home.
