CAREGiver Sara Celebrates a Decade with Home Instead

Sara Tink from Thorpe St Andrew recently celebrated ten years of caring for elderly people in the community as part of Home Instead Senior Care Norwich. For the last decade, she has enabled seniors across the area to stay living at home when they require professional care.

After Sara’s mum suffered a life changing stroke, she gave up her job as a hairdresser to become her fulltime carer. This showed Sara the importance of exceptional care, and that many elderly people are happier and more comfortable staying in the comfort of their own home. That spurred her to join at-home care provider, Home Instead Norwich in late 2010, just 8 months after it was launched by owners Chris and Akie Carter.

Sara commented: “Caring for my mum gave me the push to start my career in the care sector. My journey started working as a health care assistant at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital in several wards. I enjoyed the job, but realised how much I prefer having a one to one approach, where I can get to know the individual I care for. I get that in my role at Home Instead Norwich, hence why I have worked for them for many years!

“I have seen the company grow over the years, and I very much like the ethos and the standard of care offered to clients. It makes me proud to be part of such a great team.”

Chris said: “Sara is an inspiration. She is always thinking about how she can help and support her clients, and always goes out of her way to make a difference by really getting to know their personalities and interests. We are very proud to have Sara on our team. Here’s to the next decade!”

Home Instead Norwich employs 105 members of staff; a dedicated and passionate team committed to providing quality care to enable the elderly to remain living at home for as long as possible. The company’s services are tailored to the individual needs of each client and range from personal care, companionship, meal preparation and light housekeeping.
