Local Care Company celebrate with ‘Something Special’
Home Instead Solihull CAREgiver Samantha Elliot and her singing group ‘Something Special’, celebrating the third anniversary of the franchise

Talented local Caregiver Samantha Elliot and her singing group ‘Something Special’ were top of the bill at a celebration to mark the third birthday of Solihull based at-home care company Home Instead.
Business owner Tracy Ferreira was joined by her team of Caregivers, clients and other voluntary local care providers, including Enable Solihull and Age UK for an afternoon of entertainment, birthday cake and fun at the company’s head office at Box Tree Farm in Hockley Heath.

Amongst the guests was Mr John Caulfield (aged 65) who has been receiving visits from his Home Instead Caregiver since the company was established in 2008.

He said: “This has been a lovely afternoon. My Caregiver Dawn is an important part of my life and enables me to cope with everyday tasks at home.  She always has time to do whatever I need and I would say that the care I receive is excellent.”
The company currently employs a growing team of 45 trained Caregivers delivering a very flexible service which ranges from help for just a few hours a week to 24-hour care. Tracy Ferreira commented:
“It has been a very exciting three years for us and, thanks to my fantastic team and Home Instead’s innovative approach to delivering at-home care services; demand for our services continues to be very high.”
Home Instead aim to match the requirements of clients to the experiences, interests and personality of their Caregiver and has a minimum visit of one hour.  This person-centred approach makes a real difference to the quality of care that clients receive. Tracy continues:
“Through regular meetings and close contact with our clients, their families and our team of Caregivers we are able to provide personalised ongoing care that adapts to any changing needs of the client.  We are proud that our focus on excellence is reflected in our consistently high inspection scores from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for the quality of service we provide.”

Home Instead services include personal care, home help and companionship services and whilst their principal services involve the day-to-day care of adults in their own homes they also provide a range of specialist services including Alzheimer’s and dementia care, convalescence care, respite care and support for adults with learning difficulties.
