Some of our CAREGiver stories

I have been with home instead for just over a year, I absolutely love working for them as I feel they are very supportive of me as a CAREGiver but also as me as a person. 

I love meeting new clients but also love seeing the same ones regularly, I also like the fact we get time to spend with our clients just to have a chat and hear about their past story's which always fascinate me. 

I look forward to many more happy years with home instead.

 I'm so grateful to Home Instead for all the support and training it has given me and recognising in myself that I can do it. I always know that I have somebody at the end of the phone for any problem, small or large and I love that things actually get done and not just pushed around for weeks. They really do care and want what's best for everyone. 

I could never work for anybody else as I am so happy and fulfilled with Home Instead and their clients. So thank you for letting me find something that means more to me than just a job.

Some of our fantastic CAREGivers!

We feel very strongly that many older people can enjoy a much higher quality of life if they have the right help and support in place. With families often living a long distance away and working full time, this can be hard to provide. Home Instead will tailor support to the individual that will help maintain independence, allowing life to be lived to the full.

With a long term background in the hotel and hospitality industry, I know that there is no substitute for excellent service and this is exactly what we at Home Instead Milton Keynes aims to provide to its clients.

When my own mother was seriously ill and living hundreds of miles away, I experienced the pressure of trying to ensure that she was well looked after at all times, so I fully appreciate the peace of mind that a service like ours can bring to concerned family members.

Originally from Wales, I have lived in the area for twenty years now and am married to Matt and have two teenage two boys.  Phoebe, my young Wheaten terrier, is the latest addition to the Prosky household and I very much hope that once she is trained, she will join the Home Instead team here in the office and will no doubt enjoy getting out and visiting clients!

I am lucky enough to have had my mother living next door to us for the last fifteen years.  My children have grown up with Grandma close at hand and she has enjoyed being an important part of our busy family set up.  Now in her mid-eighties and still completely independent and active, she is a fine example of how to live a full and stimulating life no matter what your age!

With the start of Home Instead Milton Keynes I am very pleased to be working in a more meaningful and less corporate environment where what we do has positive and direct results for our clients.  Having lived in this area all my life I look forward to bringing a high quality support service to a valuable sector of our community.

I am married to Livio and have two children and two step-children. Family life is very important to me and weekends are often spent cooking and eating and trying to fit in some exercise to balance things out!

As Care Manager I am responsible for training our CAREGivers and liaising with our clients to ensure that we give them the services they most need.  I am very excited about the prospect of working for a company that already has a strong and growing reputation for excellence.  I have many years’ experience in the care industry and most recently ran a Red Cross day centre.

My home life is never dull with a husband who runs his own business and two teenage daughters.  Any spare time I have is usually spent surrounded by family and we love to travel whenever possible.



It is a daunting experience to have an elderly relative who is unable to cope for themselves.  It's equally daunting to find people to provide professional care who not only have the right skills and experience but are also 'carers' in the real sense of the word. Unlike some companies, Home Instead avoids providing a package where the person being cared for has to fit in with the design of the package.  Instead they start with the needs of the customer and provide care that meets those needs in the best possible way.  This means that care is flexible and adapts to changing circumstances.  Home Instead spent time getting to know my mother as an individual so she felt valued and 'special'.  I have only praise for the high quality of care that Home Instead provides. - Mr MA - Buckingham
