Home Instead Celebrates 200th Milestone

A home care company, founded in Chester 2005, was back in the City earlier this month to celebrate the opening of its 200th franchise location at an event at Chester Cathedral.

Over 100 guests gathered to celebrate the transformational role Home Instead Senior Care is playing in the way home care is delivered to the elderly in the UK.

Home Instead provides care and companionship to more than 14,000 seniors across the UK and employs approaching 10,000 caregivers with ever-increasing demand for its services, driven by an ageing population.

Also present at the event were Martin Jones, Managing Director of Home Instead; Dave Banark, COO of Home Instead US & Canada and Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchise Association. Guest of honour was Romesh Dharmasingham who is opening the company’s 200th office in Dorchester.

Commenting on the event, Sue Broadbent, said, “We were delighted to have been invited to help welcome Romesh to the Home Instead family.

“Our company has some a long way since we set up our  office in Chester over 12 years ago, and it was lovely to be in the Cathedral to help celebrate reaching our 200th office.”
