Four award nominations for Home Instead
Our unique partnership programme, high quality of care and management expertise have led to us being shortlisted in four categories across two major industry awards.
In the ‘Oscars’ of the care sector, the Laing Buisson Awards, Home Instead has been named a finalist in both the ‘homecare’ and ‘management excellence’ categories. The homecare category celebrates excellence in the provision of care in a home care setting with a focus on innovation, while the management excellence category focuses on Home Instead’s development as a successful business.
We also have two nominations in the Home Care Insight ‘Leaders in Care’ Awards in ‘Home Care Provider of the Year’ and ‘Business Initiative of the Year’.
The first category praised our care delivery despite the uncertainties of the pandemic, in particular highlighting our live-in care services and specialist training for CAREGivers to carry out clinical procedures.
It also praised the CAREGiver support we offer through our Employee Assistance Programme and our work to raise awareness of the job opportunities working in care.
In the second category, our partnerships programme, headed up by Sarah Williamson was praised for connecting leading industry experts with Home Instead to help enhance our care even further.
Our partnership with Parkinson’s UK, for example, has not only given our CAREGivers access to specialist training to help care for people living with the condition, but also enabled Parkinson’s UK to have a unique insight into home care.
Another link-up with Barclays Digital Eagles has given our care teams access to digital training which they pass onto clients, and a partnership with Boots UK has seen us become the first home care company to be listed in the Boots Health Hub.
Speaking about the shortlisted awards, CEO Martin Jones said: “The home care market has been through an incredible amount of change recently and we’re proud to have overcome many challenges faced in the sector.
“To be shortlisted in not just one but four award categories really is testament to the importance we place on innovation; always striving to deliver better home care through new technology, effective partners and the very best workforce.”
