Home Instead Senior Care are making a Splash

A Local domiciliary home care company serving East Hertfordshire and Uttlesford, are in great demand of late. As well as being honored with the prestigious Queens award for excellence in care, they were also finalists in two categories in the Hertfordshire Care Practitioner awards.

Being passionate about changing the face of ageing means they are constantly looking to improve the quality of a senior’s life and that of their family.

To be fully supported and also to remain in your own home is what ideally most people want, and Home Instead are doing their very best to ensure this by the person centered care approach they so passionately believe in.

Home Instead are specialists in non-medical care of older people and also support individuals with a learning disability.    Forming close friendships whilst remaining professional, makes such a huge difference to a senior and there family and going the extra mile is all part of the pledge to give assurance that a loved one is in safe, competent hands.

Tackling challenges and overcoming problems is all in a day’s work for the team but what people don’t realize is that there is a big commitment to supporting charities as well. Raising awareness is an important part of their work and giving people the tools they need to manage their physical and mental well-being.

Home Instead are especially proud of their specialized City and Guilds Alzheimer’s and Dementia awareness training that is given to all Care Givers.

Family workshops and training for retailers in the community is next on the agenda so seniors feel safe and supported out in the community. The annual Be a Santa for A Senior initiative brings Christmas cheer to many seniors. Local shops, schools and businesses all help in the quest, to provide the seniors with a gift.

The very latest venture takes place on Saturday 3rd June at the Lea Valley White Water Centre, Waltham Cross. Teaming up with Sawbridgeworth physiotherapist Wendy Penwill, they are white water rafting in order to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis.

Around 100,000 people in the UK have this debilitating disease, and although there are treatments there is no cure.

The money raised for research is vital to help the scientists find the answers that are needed.

As M.S is a lifelong condition that causes serious disability, it is so sad that it is more commonly diagnosed in people in their 20’s and 30’s and could happen at random to any one of us so Home Instead are hoping that as many people as possible help them raise a respectable amount of money so we can get nearer to that breakthrough, that many families are waiting for.
