Home Instead Wins Gold at National Business Awards

David Bassett of at-home care company, Home Instead, in Sawbridgeworth  is celebrating after the company collected a national business award last week (4th July).

  David's business is part of a national network of offices, specialising in the provision of non-medical care to the elderly. The company has been named as the British Franchise Association HSBC Franchisor of the Year and collected the Gold award at a glittering awards ceremony in London.

 Home Instead was recognised for business growth, the Sawbridgeworth branch is one of 141 offices located across the country, and for the work it has done campaigning for better standards in the elderly care sector and working to directly influence and shape the way care is delivered.

 Commenting on the award, David  said: “The work we do locally brings peace of mind to our clients and their families and it is hugely satisfying to receive national recognition for our efforts. It is fantastic that this award not only recognises the success of the business but the work we are doing to improve standards of care in the sector.”

 Home Instead was set up in the UK in 2006 and the Sawbridgeworth office opened in 2008. The company has created 70 jobs in the local area to date and is looking to recruit 50 CAREGivers in the coming 12 months.
