BBC Radio 4 Documentary Looks at the Homecare Sector in the UK

BBC Radio 4 is known for its interesting and informative look at some of the most talked about topics on the UK. Recently, the station has been working on two-part documentary looking at two sides of the homecare coin – the poor side and the exceptional side.

The first part of the documentary ‘The Secret Lives of Carers’ aired this week, on November 24th, and you can find it on BBC Iplayer. It looked at the lives of carers who have worked for homecare providers in the past that are simply well below what is expected of agencies that care for vulnerable people in their own homes. Rochelle Monte is interviewed for the documentary where she reveals some of her experience in working for a poor homecare provider in the past that placed a lot of strain on her and her clients.

The second part of the documentary will air on Tuesday December 1st, and will focus on homecare providers that are delivering an exemplary level of care to all of their clients, as well as ensuring their caregivers are also happy and able to their job well. Home Instead Senior Care is very pleased to say that, along with other homecare providers from across the UK, we are featured in documentary as an example of high quality homecare.

Rochelle Monte now works for Home Instead as a CAREGiver, and in the second part of the documentary she is once again interviewed about her current caring situation; comparing her previous experience to working with us at Home Instead, where we are fully committed to delivering high quality care that is always focused on the clients’ needs and wants.

We are delighted that Home Instead Senior care is included as an example of excellent quality care at home, and we know that CAREGivers, like Rochelle, help to make sure that the care we provide is exemplary and always focused on the individual needs of every client.
