My name is Frances Sayer, I am the Managing Director and owner of Home Instead Cannock assisted by a dedicated team of CAREGivers.
The office has been established since June 2010 and covers the vast area of Cannock Chase including Rugeley, Burntwood, Hammerwich,Hednesford, Heath Hayes, Norton Canes, Cannock Central, Great Wyrley, Cheslyn Hay, Penkridge & Wheaton Aston.
In my past, I was employed by a leading care home company, which provided residential, nursing, Alzheimer's and dementia care.
It soon became obvious to me that many older people would really prefer to remain in their own home rather than moving into a care facility. Often both they and their families had experienced problems with care in their own home and felt that a residential home was now their only option. This was especially relevant for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia related illness.
I started to research care providers and was delighted to discover Home Instead. Home Instead’s ethos matched exactly what I had been looking for, to enable older people to remain independent in their own homes by providing a caring and professional environment.
Clients can continue to enjoy their life and wherever possible attend social and community events with the assistance of our trained and compassionate Caregivers who are individually matched to their requirements.
Our aim is to ensure continuity of care, enabling clients to see the same CAREGivers and to enjoy building relationships with that person. The services provided range from personal care, companionship, befriending, light housework, meal preparation and transportation plus many other types of assistance. This can be provided to anyone over the age of 18, as well as older people with health or mobility problems, including anyone with physical or learning disabilities. For those who suffer from Alzheimer's and dementia, our specialist service provides a very person centred approach and provides continuity of carer that is essential. The services are very adaptable and Home Instead Cannock pride themselves on being responsive and flexible to a client’s needs. In times when family members may be finding care difficult to cope with or need a much deserved break, we can step in to offer respite care solutions. Homecare to Home Instead Cannock is not just about the 'task' it is about the person and all of their needs.
Home Instead Cannock is registered and regulated with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and all CAREGivers provide six references and are required to have a Criminal Records Bureau check undertaken through Home Instead before commencing work. All of the training, references and checks ensure that you, or your loved one can be confident of receiving caring, compassionate and professional assistance whatever your needs may be.
The office based in the heart of Cannock serves the whole of the Cannock Chase region.
The Cannock Home Instead Office is part of a global network of more than 900 locally owned and operated offices.
