A home care business is set to create 30 jobs after setting up a new Norfolk operation.
Home Instead Senior Care, which offers support to the elderly in their own homes, has established a franchise at Vulcan Road North, in Hellesdon, near Norwich.
Chris Carter, who set up the new division last month, said he was looking to take on 30 members of staff during 2010 to provide care to a growing list of clients.
Visits are a minimum of one hour long and services are tailored to individual needs, and can include companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping duties, medication reminders, shopping and errands.
