Westcare Homecare, one of Ireland’s leading homecare providers of homecare, is proud to announce the creation of 70 new jobs in Roscommon and Galway over the next 12 months with the opening of two new offices. These new jobs will support Westcare Homecare in the delivery of person-centred care to older persons, within the home setting and local community.

Director of Westcare Homecare Sharon Carter said,

we are delighted to announce the opening of our new Roscommon and Tuam offices. We look forward to recruiting our team from the local community to provide care to the elderly whilst helping them remain in their own home for as long as possible.  We offer flexible and rewarding employment opportunities for healthcare staff and are delighted to announce our latest expansion plans. 

The mission of Westcare Homecare Services is to provide person-centred care to their clients and their families and this is done in a dignified and professional manner.

 Damien English T.D., Minister for Business, Employment and Retail said

Today is a good day for Roscommon and Tuam as Westcare Homecare expand their operations with the addition of 70 new jobs and two new offices in the region.  This significant, regional jobs announcement is a great boost for those who wish to work and develop a career in the growing home care sector in Ireland.  The ageing of our population will represent one of the most significant demographic and societal developments that Ireland has ever faced. The number of people over the age of 65 is expected to reach 1.4 million by 2040, or about 23% of the total population. Government is committed to policies which support the choice of older people to live in their own homes and communities with dignity and independence for as long as possible.
