Santa’s Helpers Deliver Gifts to the Elderly Living in the Harrogate and Hambleton District

Local home care company Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk and their army of dedicated CAREGivers have been busy again this year delivering mince pies to all their clients in the run up to Christmas. Each year the team make sure that the mince pies are all boxed up and ready to go to give as a seasonal treat.

Sheena Van Parys, owner of Home Instead commented 'We cover quite a large rural area in North Yorkshire but our CAREGivers have been very busy making sure that every one of our clients receives a box of mince pies. It is especially important at this time of year that those who are more frail and vulnerable are not forgotten about in the hustle and bustle of the festive period. Many older people living on their own do not have relatives nearby so this time of year can be very lonely for them. At Home Instead we have a dedicated, compassionate professional team of carers who will continue to support our clients on Christmas Day and for the rest of the Christmas and New Year period even if it snows!'

The company also remember their hard working CAREGivers at this time of year, each of the team received a special gift to thank them for going that extra mile and delivering excellent care every day of the year.

In all a total of 170 gifts were hand delivered to both clients and CAREGivers over the past week and this is something that Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk are very proud to be able to say that they have done so every year since they first started 5 years ago, the business has grown but the personal touch remains at the heart and at the core of their values.
