Mayor of Bolton, Councillor John Byrne and his Mayoress, Councillor Lynda Byrne cut the ribbon to mark the official opening of the new Home Instead offices at Hamill House on Chorley New Road in Bolton.
The Home Instead team, led by business owner David Deller, were joined by their clients, Caregivers and representatives from many other local older persons support groups to toast the office opening.
Home Instead are also celebrating their accreditation from the independent healthcare regulator, The Care Quality Commission (CQC), to provide its services in Bolton and surrounding areas.
CQC accreditation is required by all providers of health and adult social care in England.
It ensures that companies such as Home Instead provide services of the highest quality to help older people continue to lead independent lives in their own homes.
At the opening owner David said:
“The business has got off to a great start and we are delighted to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress here today. We have already established a fantastic team of Caregivers but demand for our services is high and so we are looking to recruit more people. I would like to hear from people with caring and compassionate natures who would be interested in joining our team.”
Home Instead services include personal care such as assistance with bathing, dressing, eating and medications; home help covering all aspects of day-to-day housework, shopping, meal preparation and household duties; and companionship services that can involve everything from escorting clients on visits or appointments to simple conversation and good company.
