Providing a flexible, cost-effective option
Care that’s tailor-made to your needs
At Home Instead Senior Care, we provide personalised home care for older people that is dignified, reliable and relationship-led. We believe that everyone is different and that’s why we don’t offer a ready-made package solution but help that is tailored to your needs and will adapt as your needs change. From companionship, to dementia care and home help, our wide range of home care services can help you to keep living happily at home. We want to make your experience stress-free and that’s why we provide a cost-effective care solution with prices that are easy to understand and manage, to give you more control.
A global structure with a local touch
Home Instead Senior Care was founded in 1994 by Paul and Lori Hogan who couldn’t find personalised care that would suit their grandmother’s needs. Thanks to them, she was able to stay in her own home and live longer than expected. From this positive experience, they decided to create the Home Instead franchise which is now present in 14 countries around the world. Our global franchise model means that we’ve gathered best practices from around the world and passed them onto each of our individual local offices, enabling them to provide high-quality, personalised care. Therefore, each Home Instead care provider benefits from high-quality training and efficient processes that enable them to focus on you. In the UK, our offices provide care for small areas, which allows them to be close to you and available whenever you need them. As a small local business, they will deeply care about your needs and ensure that they provide a personal, outstanding experience every time.
Building a relationship with your CAREGiver
Our CAREGivers are carefully selected to match the personality of the person they will be visiting. We choose people for their enthusiasm, friendliness, warmth and empathy as well as their range of interests above their professional background. This is what helps to build a relationship with the person they care for and their family.
All our CAREGivers undergo extensive background checks and are given high-quality training to give them the confidence, knowledge and skills to care for older people.
Continuity of care
Our care services are relationship-based. Matching a CAREGiver to you ensures that you’ll see the same person every time. Your CAREGiver will get to know you as you’ll get to know them. This proximity allows them to spot anything unusual and help prevent illnesses or accidents more easily.
It is usual for our visits to last at least one hour to ensure our CAREGivers are not rushing and take the time to look after you. We also keep a family notebook to ensure family members know how their loved one is doing, which is especially useful if they don’t live nearby.
Changing the face of care
Educating the UK
Most care decisions are made in urgency after an accident or an illness. At Home Instead, we are working hard to change this. We’re convinced that providing support at home can help to prevent – or at least delay - accidents and illnesses. It also enables older people to live a fulfilled life in familiar surroundings for longer.
Our aim is to change the face of care and help people across the UK to age well. We love sharing our extensive knowledge with families and the wider community. Here are some examples of our useful home care resources:
- Dementia workshops organised across the UK and free to attend.
- Online training materials with videos and tutorials to guide you when caring for someone with dementia.
- Community involvement schemes to help protect the older people from fraud and give them some joy at Christmas.
- Advice and support articles to find out more about various subjects around care, ageing and dementia.
