Home Instead owner Luisa Castle of Southampton East is thrilled with the response she received following her office opening and official first birthday party. The event was a huge success with nearly 50 people in attendance. Special guests included Mark Hoban, MP and the Deputy Mayor of Fareham, Councillor Dennis Steadman and his wife, Mrs Carole Steadman.
The event which took place at the company’s office in Park Gate Southampton saw MP Mark Hoban commenting that the Home Instead service is definitely something he would sign up for. Similarly, Deputy Mayor Dennis Steadman and his wife Carole were thoroughly impressed and Carole commented that the job of a caregiver would be extremely rewarding and a great option for anyone who is retired.
Clients, families and caregivers alike were invited to take part in the celebrations and were entertained by the musical styling of Saxophony, a group of Saxophonists who kindly gave up their own time to play.
Local business people and representatives from a variety of organisations were also present including visitors from The Admiral Nurses and the local Community Innovations Teams.
Luisa commented: “It was fantastic to receive so much support from our local community. Mark Hoban MP took such care and attention to speak to everyone and delivered a wonderful speech before helping me to unveil our new sign. He obviously really understood our company ethos and commented on the high quality of services we offer. It was great to get this recognition as we are truly passionate about providing care of the highest quality to all of our clients.”
She continued: “The event was also a great way to thank our caregivers and clients as well as celebrate our first year of business.”
