Extra Care Staff at New Cookstown Office L-R Charlie McCann, Manager Jamie Smyth, Sarah Fullen & Christina Nugent

Extra Care, Northern Ireland’s longest established domiciliary charity is proud to announce the creation of 10 new jobs in its new Cookstown office.

The expansion has come after the charity identified an increased need for home care services in the local and surrounding areas, as well as the need to have a presence in the community to support its Care Workers.

For over 80 years, Extra Care has been leading the way in how domiciliary care is delivered. The almost 350 strong team of Care Workers are trained to care for clients in their own home, all of whom have a varying degree of physical or mental health needs. Services provided range from domiciliary care, bespoke dementia care plans and mobile night services.

Care services are currently provided to clients across Northern Ireland including Antrim, Carrickfergus, Belfast, Ballymena, Lisburn, Ballyclare, Larne and Newry.

Jamie Smyth, Extra Care’s manager for the Cookstown area said, “We are so pleased with the expansion. Not only are we able to care for more people in the area, we are also able to offer jobs to Care Workers locally. After listening to our clients and identifying significant demand for our mobile night service, we are now able to increase our care service as well as provide consistent Care Worker support locally.

“We are currently recruiting Care Workers to join our experienced and expanding team. Extra Care prides itself on its excellent staff benefits, including flexible working hours, paid induction training and career development opportunities. We would love to hear from anyone who is interested in working in the care profession in the local area.”

Chief Executive of Extra Care Brian Hutchinson said, “Our goal is to ensure that we provide person-centred care, enabling people to remain in their own home for as long as possible, living with dignity and comfort.  As people’s needs change, we believe our support is at its most effective when delivered at home, where surroundings are familiar and the client is most content.

“The expansion and creation of new jobs in Cookstown is testament to the great service currently provided by the Extra Care staff across Northern Ireland. We are looking forward to provide care for people in the area.”
