Home care jobs

Home care jobs offer an opportunity to work with people in their own homes. It’s about taking care and treatment to people, in situations familiar to them and the surroundings that they feel most comfortable in.

Home care jobs are, arguably, the key link between healthcare and social care. This is because they enable clients to become independent: to recover, rehabilitate, heal, interact… to cope and lead as normal a life as possible given their social or health issues.

The relevant point here is that jobs in home care are about providing clients and patients with a degree of support while, at the same time, enabling them to remain independent.

Why is there so much emphasis on home care?

Educated estimates of the cost to the NHS to fund long-term elderly care were put at £4.23bn in late 2010. The UK has a growing elderly population. During the first decade of the 21st Century the UK’s health care service saw a huge increase in the number of hospital admissions for those aged over 60. Combine that with the restraints on hospital funding between 2010-2015 and you can see why there’s been such a huge emphasis on the importance of delivering home care in the UK (according to The Times, October 29th 2010, over 75s hospital stays increased by over 60% between 2000-2010). Fulfilling elderly care needs with enough qualified or trained staff will become one of the UK’s biggest recruitment challenges.

It’s inevitable then that we will see an increase in the number of home care jobs; it’s a trend that is guaranteed to continue. And not just elderly care jobs either. Analysts and healthcare experts feel the NHS will fail if hospital stays are not reduced by increasing focus, funds and energy on social care, whether it is for the elderly or the young, those with learning disabilities or mental health needs. The push for more home care was no doubt one of the drivers behind social care (as an industry) being bundled through the 2010 spending review cuts with relative impunity. It’s felt that the UK Government is hoping to save over £2.5bn by increasing and improving home care.

So, it is believed, much can be achieved through good home health care: effective clinical treatment, nutritional advice, therapeutic care, rehabilitation… the list goes on. Good home care, organised well, allows resources to be lifted from the responsibility of hospitals, and reducing hospital admissions numbers.

About us

Welcome to Emerald Schools

raising role models

Emerald High School was established in 2005 as a progression from the highly academically successful Emerald Nursery and Primary School in Lagos, which was established in 1995. The establishment of Emerald High School was in response to the yearnings of parents in the primary school and the need to bridge the gap in providing high quality Secondary School Education in the country. We are aware of the problems of today’s child, which include a hostile society that has not much to offer by way of values/morals and cramped learning environment, which do not help the child to attain his/her full potentials. With a view to making the difference, we at Emerald took cognizance of the gaps in the education sector in deciding what facilities and personnel to emplace, right from the inception of the school.

The permanent site, which became operational from September 2007 gives us even a better opportunity to explore all possibilities in child development. It is located in a 34 acres farmland in the serene valley of the sleepy Ogunrun-Ori Village in Ogun State, a mere 25 minutes leisurely drive from the former Toll Gate at the Lagos end of the Lagos-Ibadan Express Road. It is easily accessible from every part of the country by road or by air through Ibadan or Lagos axis. It is indeed an ideal learning environment because of its calm and beautiful scenery and insulation from city noise.

The Board of Governors, which is made up of men and women who have distinguished themselves in their chosen professions, which include Accounting, Banking, Human Resources Management, Education and Public Service, is very confident of the quality of education it has fashioned out. No wonder then that many of the members have/had their children in the school.

The school believes in building a solid foundation for the child, and as such goes to great length in emplacing holistic education programmes that incorporates best practices.We are always conscious of our vision of becoming a widely acclaimed school both locally and internationally and as such, we strive to turn out students with passion for excellence and who have been adequately prepared for tertiary education and life. We have put in place modern structures, quality manpower, condusive environment and adequate support services that a good school needs to run smoothly. Furthermore we have emplaced good security measures, students’ performance enhancing programmes, co-curricular activities, foreign Students exchange programmes coupled with regular visits to places of educational and social interest. We operate a robust information technology platform where students and teachers interact through their laptops and wide range network to complement classroom delivery.

We handle with care the health and comfort of our students. The hostels are run by competent personnel and that are constantly being trained to cope with day to day challenges of a modern day hostel. The clinic is stocked with good quality drugs under the supervision of qualified matrons and other experienced medical staff. We have a working agreement with a nearby high standard hospital where health cases are referred and treated when the need arises.

Our curriculum is a blend of British and Nigerian curriculum and the students write the following examinations: IGCSE, Checkpoint, NECO (Junior School) BECE and WASSCE. We also tutor students for TOEFL and SAT.

The results have been impressive over the years and to sustain this, our teachers are regularly trained both locally and abroad. All students have an insurance cover provided by a prominent insurance service provider. The insurance policy covers the students to the extent that in the unlikely event of the loss of the breadwinner (who is named in the policy) while in the school, they are able to continue their education.

The parents play a very important role in determining some of the policies of the school on the platform of the Parents Management Forum(PMF). The PMF of the school is headed by officers of high reputation and commitment who have been elected from the Parents. The parents on this platform partner with the school on various fronts in the education of the children.

Your choice of Emerald High School is a good decision and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Emerald High School, where together, we shall raise role models.
