At Home Instead we are very proud of our team of CAREGivers and the difference they make to their clients lives every day. We work very hard to ensure that they receive the very best training and support and we think this shows not only in the great service we offer to our clients but also in the happiness of our staff.
Every year we ask all of our clients and CAREGivers to complete a confidential survey which allows us to gage if we are getting it right and listen to their ideas and suggestions.
This year the survey was undertaken in June and once again we were thrilled with the results
This is what our CAREGivers said about us:
‘’Having recently done the training in Parkinson’s I have found it has helped immensely with one of my clients. Also the Dementia training has proved invaluable helping me to understand and think of alternatives when needed.’’
‘’I am given the right support and information to achieve a positive working environment with my clients and family at the top of my agenda.’’
‘’At all my appraisals I have been asked what I would like to achieve and my training goals have been taken into account and I am offered training regularly.’’
‘’Whenever I have called the office, straight away I will be given the support/answers required. My manager is very supportive and approachable. The training given is thorough. The further training offered is exceptional.’’
98% of our staff said they would recommend Home Instead Senior Care to a friend or family member as a place to work. They believe that Home Instead Senior Care as a whole is effectively managed and well run and they understand why Home Instead Senior Care is different from other care companies
What our clients think:
‘’Excellent CAREGivers, good management. They take an interest in the clients real needs and life, I would highly recommend’’
‘’They know about the client in a very personalised manner. They provide solutions, not problems in dealing with current issues’’
‘’When I was looking for an agency - I was told they would be 'the daughter who doesn't have to go to work' and they are absolutely that. Enabling me to go to work knowing they do so much (if not more) than I could.’’
‘’CAREGivers go the extra mile to ensure client is looked after. Plus regular CAREGiver & times makes a huge difference - CAREGivers who get to know clients makes a huge difference especially to someone with Dementia’’
‘’Staff are sympathetic, efficient, friendly. They bring a CAREGiver to the house to introduce them before they start working with you.’’
‘’Home Instead does what they say in their brochures. A refreshing change from our other experiences. Thank you.’’

I would definitely recommend anyone to use Home Instead. They have treated my mum with the greatest of care and respect, ensuring her safety at all times. They have great patience with mum and communicate with her as a person not as someone with dementia, although that obviously has to be taken into account. I like the fact there is no uniform as mum would jus think it was nurses coming in and would get upset. The carers have been company for me too and become friends not just carers. I went two and a half years with no help and now. I don't know what I would do without them. You're all stars!Ms JC
