Home Instead welcomes a CAREGiver from across the World

Here at the Cheltenham + Cotswolds office of Home Instead Senior Care we recently enjoyed a visit from a very special CAREGiver who had travelled over 10,500 miles across the world to Cheltenham from Sydney Australia!

Sue Empey works with the Sydney North Shore and Northern Beaches office of Home Instead where she has been a CAREGiver for over 8 years. She was originally born in Cheltenham but emigrated to Australia many years ago and brought up her family there. Sue has returned to the UK on numerous occasions over the past few years to visit her elderly parents and during this time she got in touch with our office in Cheltenham to ask if we could provide some assistance to her mum and dad at home. Of course we were delighted to help.

Sadly Sue's parents have both now passed away however we have a special relationship with Sue and share many happy memories of the time spent with her parents. At home in Sydney Sue loves visiting her own regular Home Instead clients and spending quality time with them. She enables them to live life and enjoy the day - helping around the house or with more complex care - chatting over coffee or supporting someone to get up in the morning and go to bed at night. Whatever is needed, Sue is a much-loved and trusted companion - just like our CAREGivers here in Gloucestershire!

Home instead can now be found in 12 countries around the world and each office is completely independently owned and operated. Which means that every office is led by someone who is firmly based in the local community and at the same time committed to providing exactly the same high quality, personalised care at home for older people.

Meeting up with Helen Roberts who is in charge of recruitment at the Home Instead Cheltenham office during her recent stay Sue (pictured on the left) commented: “Being part of Home Instead is like being part of a big family. Everyone shares the same passion for providing fantastic care. We all have the same values and ethos wherever we are in the world”.

If you are naturally caring and compassionate and would like to join our CQC 'Outstanding' rated team here in Cheltenham and the Cotswolds contact Helen on 01242 513203 or email her at: helen.roberts@homeinstead.co.uk!
