More male home care workers needed to meet sector demands, says Welsh council

12 August 2019 – Home Care Insight

A council in Wales wants to boost the number of male home care professionals working in the sector.

Home care is rarely considered as a career by men looking for work and all through the UK, women make up 84% of the domiciliary care workforce.

This statistic – and the increasing demand on services generated by an ageing population – has prompted Powys County Council to recruit more male home care workers in the area.
