'Caregiver of the Year' award winner Kinga Drabrowska holding her title


Home Instead is delighted to announce that Kinga Dabrowska, has been awarded the prestigious national title of ‘Caregiver of the Year’.

Kinga, who is from the Swindon & the Vale of the White Horse office won the award for the unswerving care and commitment she has shown to her elderly clients.

Home Instead employs in the region of 7,000 caregivers across the UK, and to win the overall accolade is a fantastic achievement.

Kinga (33), who lives in Swindon, joined the team a year ago and was nominated for the award by Home Instead owner John Kirk. John attended the glittering national ceremony which was held at the ACC in Liverpool with Kinga and was immensely proud to see her collect her award in front of over 500 guests.

John explained, “From our very first meeting it was clear that Kinga had a real caring heart and a passion to make a difference to people. She has supported her clients in an exemplary fashion and has become a much-loved companion to her clients and a well-respected member of the team. 

“She has personal experience of growing up with older relatives with dementia; she is a natural carer and has an unswerving commitment to do the right thing. Her dedication has meant that she has taken very little time off and when she found out how many days she had accrued she said, ‘I’m not sure I could survive that long without working!’”

As part of Home Instead’s care services, Kinga provides care in her client’s own homes such as companionship, meal preparation and medication reminders.

Kinga commented, “I’m so pleased to have won this award, I just didn’t expect it. I do what I do because I love my job and the people I care for. When my name was announced I was amazed, there were so many great finalists, I’m not sure whether it has sunk in yet!”
