Caroline Aherne - Owner

Hello, I am Caroline and the owner of Home Instead Senior Care in Bexhill, Battle, St Leonards and Hastings and I am proud to have opened this office and to be able bring to the local community the unique experience of Home Instead Senior Care. I have personal experience of caring for a loved one and I know that we get one opportunity to deliver the right type of care to our clients and we strive to do this every time.

We are a local family run office, providing non-medical services to help older people in our local community so they can remain in their own homes where they are most comfortable and happiest. 

Many families these days have huge pressures on their time and often don’t live locally to their loved ones. This is why we want to be able to give people peace of mind knowing that when they can’t be there, we will be providing companionship and care services just as they would want.

At Home Instead Senior Care, our services are tailored to the needs of each client, and CAREGivers are matched to their clients based on mutual interests. All our visits are for a minimum of one hour, and we are devoted to meeting our clients’ needs by providing a service of the highest quality from our CAREGivers, who deliver our service with warmth, friendliness and pride. We enable our CAREGivers to deliver this service by giving them the best training and support.

Our aim is to change the face of ageing in our local community. By fully training our CAREGivers and carrying out detailed client consultations, our clients will have the companionship they are seeking with someone they can trust and who they know will support them. This cannot be done during short duration visits - so our visits will be for a minimum of one hour.

My team and I are passionate about helping our clients to remain safely,  happily and independently in their own homes.

To us it's personal!
