Becky Elliott has joined the office team of at home care provider, Home Instead Senior Care, Cambridge. Becky is the Care Staff Scheduler, responsible for matching the company’s clients and CAREGivers and providing a continuity of high quality care. Becky joins from another care company and has several years experience in the role. Home Instead Cambridge provides tailored care and companionship to people in their own homes, enabling them to live independent lives. Clients are offered care that they want, at a time they specify and have matched appropriate CAREGivers’ visits consistently.“That’s the beauty of my new job” explained Becky. “Much of the care I’ve arranged before revolved around doing tasks for people and then moving to the next person. That’s not what the people we visit want, nor our CAREGivers.”
Home Instead’s approach to helping independence hinges on consistency and familiarity. “Companionship and spending time with people is what makes us different” Mike Francis, the business owner commented. “Our visit times are deliberately set at a minimum of one hour per visit. That enables us to look after the person, rather than perform a task.” And Becky has already noticed the difference. “Home Instead CAREGivers really do know their clients. Visiting the same people and caring for someone who has a common interest really makes a difference.” For more details please call 01480 495834.
