SOCIAL CARE NEWS PROGRAMME
Home Instead Senior Care Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk is a provider of high quality Home Care services to elderly people living in this beautiful part of North Yorkshire.
Owned by husband & wife team Andrew and Sheena Van Parys both share a clear vision of providing the means for older people to remain living independently in their own homes with the care and support that their team of CAREGivers provides.
Andrew and Sheena decided to open a Home Instead Senior Care office as they both had first-hand experience of how hard it was to find good quality care for their own family.
Andrew's grandmother was diagnosed with vascular dementia, his 90 year old grandfather required daily care and Sheena's mother lived with Alzheimer's. All were able to remain at home until they sadly passed away.
However it was a constant struggle to find and receive quality care for them in their own homes. Andrew and Sheena quickly realised what a unique service Home Instead Senior Care offered and soon made the decision to open a Home Instead Senior Care office close to home in order to help members of their own local community.
Quite simply Home Instead Senior Care aims to be the Home Care service provider of first choice for elderly people in and around Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk as well as having a positive impact on the wider community as a whole.
All support is bespoke and individually planned for each client. Visits are not rushed and Home Instead understands the importance of spending time supporting clients on a social and emotional level as well as getting the necessary 'jobs' done. This enables CAREGivers to form a close relationship with their clients, providing a person centred care service which is built around the requirements of each individual. This can vary from assistance with shopping trips, companionship, escorting to appointments or social engagements as well as home help, meal preparation, personal care, support with medication and much, much more.
Home Instead recognises that some clients have more specialist needs and so have invested heavily in training programmes for staff in many areas but especially in supporting people living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
CAREGivers will encourage, stimulate and assist clients in a variety of day to day activities to maintain their independence and improve their quality of life
All CAREGivers are carefully chosen for their empathy and nurturing qualities, their caring and respectful approach to the elderly, their reliability and their willingness to match their valuable skills with the excellent training that Home Instead Senior Care has to offer.
All staff have gone through a rigorous selction process which includes enhanced CRB checks and the provision of six references before training begins. This recruitment and training approach leads to the provision of a high quality service and a contented, happy team.
