We believe there is a better way to deliver homecare.

For us care and companionship go hand-in-hand.  With visits that last a minimum of an hour.  Delivered by people who feel valued and respected and part of a bigger mission … our CAREGvers.  They are our backbone, recruited for their empathy and compassion.

Independent research carried out by Smith & Henderson in June 2015 confirmed the difference we are making to the lives of our clients and our CAREGivers every day. Smith & Henderson surveyed our clients and CAREGivers for their views.

This is our truth.  Together we ARE changing the face of homecare…

Being told about the existence of Home Instead Senior Care was in the situation of my

health trauma a life saver.

The two carers are reliable and forward thinking which is so helpful. Life is much better having

consistent carers who take their time and no rushing or 15 minute visits mean quality care.

My brother's caregiver is exceptional, so caring, considerate and always thinking of new things to do on

their outings.

I contacted Home Instead Senior Care to help provide care and support to my elderly mum. This has

been a huge success and my mum and our family know she is in capable hands with two amazing

carers, Leighan and Katie. We couldn't have asked for better. There is also a professional office team

always willing to assist. A superb organisation.

We were so lucky when Home Instead came along when they did, and since then we have been stress free, it has worked out very well, it is a wonderful service.

Mum is really enjoying her visits and talks nonstop about them. Wish we had done this a long time ago for mum. We didn't know how she would take to it, but we are very pleasantly surprised! I can't thank you all enough.

Anne is working out really well with my mum, she's a great mixture of fun and warmth. Even though mum can still forget that Anne's been, she is stimulated, happy and I have every confidence in leaving them together.

Mum would greatly enjoy a walk in the Hermitage, and it’s nice to know the weather is improving for such outings. Elizabeth is very good with her, and I feel there’s a real connection of interests.
