Hi I’m Mark Greatbatch the Franchise Owner of Home Instead Senior Care here in Sawbridgeworth. I have been delivering Care services in the East Herts area since 1996 when I left the Royal Navy. During that time I have worked very closely with all manner of agencies at both local and national levels in pursuit of excellence in the delivery of service. Home Instead has allowed me to refocus the type and style of service being delivered to a much more personal and relationship driven service which very firmly places our clients at the centre of everything we do. I have worked at every level within a care organisation which has allowed me to experience first hand what it feels like to be on the front line. The Home Care sector is a very special place and one where things need to be done the right way without fail. I feel very privileged to be a part of it and I hope that we really do touch the lives of the people we provide our services for.
