A CARE firm has revealed plans to create 25 jobs.

Carefound Home Care, which provides home care and dementia care services for elderly people, was founded just two years ago, but says it is looking for more workers after seeing demand increase.

The Harrogate-based firm covers North Yorkshire, and founder and owner Oliver Stirk says it was committed to maintaining its growth.

He said: “With an aging population and ever increasing pressures on health services, there is a growing need to help elderly people retain independence for longer.

“People are also now recognising the benefits of specialist care services and have seen demand continue to rise, meaning we need 25 new people to join our team.”
