The Queen’s Award for innovation - Royal Recognition for Home Instead

Home Instead UK is celebrating royal praise on the very special occasion of Her Majesty's 90th birthday on April 21st.  The UK's No 1 homecare provider and No 1 homecare franchisor is proud to announce it has received the Queen's Award for innovation - the UK's highest accolade for business success. The Queen's Award is hugely prestigious and honors the blueprint for care the brand has created, a bespoke model that delivers dignified, quality care in the home for older people.

The award from the monarch pays testimony to Home Instead’s relationship-led approach, which includes: Homecare visits that typically last a minimum of one hour or longer. A focus on the value of companionship and trips out alongside practical help with bathing and meal preparation. CAREGivers and clients matched according to common hobbies and interests.

Co-founders Sam and Trevor Brocklebank brought the Home Instead ethos to the UK after experiencing poor care when Trevor's grandfather Frank needed support. They knew there had to be a better way for an ageing population to receive care, a way to provide a quality experience that helps older people continue to live happily and healthily in the comfort of their own homes as long as possible. The Queen's Award recognizes the growth of Home Instead - from the pilot office set up in 2005 by the Brocklebanks - to a robust network of 175 offices across the UK. The brand is made up of a family of business owners who are united in its mission: to change the face of ageing.
