Meet the team

Linda and some of our CARFEGivers

Our CAREGivers

A few of the CAREGivers from the Broadstairs Team. We are very proud to have a brilliant team of dedicated, compassionate and reliable CAREGivers, many of whom go above and beyond the call of duty to take care of our clients.

CAREGivers are carefully selected for their caring and compassionate nature, together with their desire to improve the quality of life for all of our clients. They all share our passion to deliver the highest quality care to the people who call upon our services. We are always looking for people with these qualities to join our team. If you think you could fill this role, please look at our vacancies page or call one of our team on 01843 862 268 or email

We always try and make sure that the CAREGiver team remains consistent, so that a trust and friendship will develop. CAREGivers are allowed the time to travel to each call, in order that they can arrive on time and are never under pressure, or in a rush to leave.

Now that you have found Home Instead, there is no need to look any further because we are absolutely confident that you will be delighted with the quality of service you receive.

Kevan has over 20 years first-hand experience of providing care services for people in Broadstairs, Cliftonville, Ramsgate and Margate.  Having previously owned and managed two highly-regarded residential care homes in Thanet, Kevan particularly appreciates the reassurance and dignity that ‘at-home’ care can offer to those who are able to enjoy an independent lifestyle in their own homes.
