The East Nottingham & Melton Mowbray Team
Our Super-Hero CAREGivers
Our amazing CAREGivers are committed to providing a reliable, compassionate and friendly care service that makes a real difference to our clients' lives. Their thoughtfulness and dedication are inspirational. They work tirelessly helping our clients retain their dignity whilst remaining independent their own homes across Nottinghamshire.
They arrive with a smile and friendly welcome for clients and their families. Many of our CAREGivers entered the care sector because they want to make a difference to lives of the elderly, some of them having cared for loved ones of their own. Every day they provide comfort, companionship, practical help and personal care. The quality of our CAREGiver's work remains paramount; they continue to provide support, stimulation and personal care to our clients with absolute dedication and commitment.
In short they are our most valuable assets.

Helen Speed: Care Manager
Having worked the last six years within the learning disability field, I have decided to re-direct my career path towards supporting and understanding the needs of older people. I feel very excited and passionate about the vision of Home Instead Senior Care and am looking forward to working alongside Richard, Jo and the rest of the fantastic team in the future development and progression of the business.
I have just recently completed my QCF level 5 in Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care and children and Young People's Services, and I am now looking forward to putting this into practice. I have lived in the Newark area for the majority of my life, brought up 2 children and now am very lucky to have a grand-daughter to spoil!!
Kyrstie Oughton - Scheduler
My name is Kyrstie Oughton and I’m very happy to be part of the Home Instead Senior Care team at the East Nottingham office as the Scheduler . I live locally and have a 7 year old son who attends the local school in East Bridgford. For the last 7 years I have worked with a Fire & Security company working within the service department. I am very much a people person and love meeting and talking to new people. I am very much looking forward to the rewards and challenges that come with working within the Care industry and I cannot wait to learn new skills. Outside of work my time is spent with my friends and family, I also love to read and a season ticket holder to the Nottingham Panthers Ice Hockey.
Denise Pitts - Training & Retention Manager
Having worked for Home Instead Senior Care as a CAREGiver and Senior CAREGiver for the last three years, I am really excited to become part of the full-time team as Acting Training and Retention Manager.
My role will include training new CAREGivers throughout their initial induction; this will provide the confidence and skills needed to deliver the compassionate and tailor made service that we strive to provide. I will also be assisting with continuous assessment and annual training as well as encouraging CAREGivers to take part in extra training that could benefit them and our clients.
I am based at the office and will be providing continuous support to our CAREGivers in order to make them feel comfortable and informed within their roles.
Sam Eves - Recruiter
My name is Sam, and I’m delighted to work for Home Instead as the recruiter.
I live in Southwell, and enjoy life there very much. My wonderful son is just leaving home to study music in Leeds. I have lovely friends and enjoy spending time with them. Reading anything from fiction to philosophy makes me happy, and I go to a book group and night classes. I enjoy live music and play an active part as a volunteer admin for a local music festival. My Dad has helped me with my little garden this year, and I have had presents of plants from some really kind people, so it’s all looking wonderful!
For most of my professional life I have worked as a nurse. I have some management experience too. I’m passionate about excellence in care, and equally passionate about older people, and making sure care is right for them, as individuals. I hope to use this experience and enthusiasm in bringing high quality new staff into the Home Instead team.
I look forward to meeting you!
Hannah Arkwright - Administrator
I come from a pattern cutting, sewing and designing background, but never felt as though I belonged. I eventually decided to change my career direction and decided to become a CAREGiver for Home Instead, and I haven’t looked back since. Soon after joining I was asked to become the Office Administrator and feel so blessed to be part of such a caring, passionate and family-like team.
I am not local to the area and only moved to Nottingham 2 years ago from Lancashire. I spend my spare time baking, sewing, knitting and spending time with my Jack Russell, Bruce.
Richard and Jo Aram: Owners
After 15 years of working for an international airline as cabin crew, Richard decided to hang up his wings and seek a fresh challenge. For Richard the opportunity to join the Home Instead Senior Care team as a franchise owner has enabled him to continue in the service sector by providing industry-leading care for his clients, but also allowed him and his wife, Jo, to engage more meaningfully with the local community. Both Richard and Jo are committed to providing compassionate care to those within their community who need it most. Along with their Care Manager, Helen, they are passionate about making a difference for the elderly and also developing a rewarding environment for their CAREGivers to deliver that service. Outside of work, Richard and Jo spend most of their time looking after their very active 4 year old twins!
I felt I had to write to commend Mum's care generally and, in particular, Laura with whom Mum has developed a lovely friendship that is making such a difference to her life. Laura takes the concept of 'care' to another level. It is clearly so much more than a job for her and we would like you to know how much we appreciate her efforts in what is, for us, a heartbreaking situation. Laura is well-trained and professional but also full of heart. Well done for finding her!Mrs M - Chesterfield
