Meet Our Caring Team

PK

Phil Kennedy & Amy Kennedy - Company Directors & RCM

Before opening the Home Instead Senior Care office in Peterborough; Phil worked in the financial sector and Amy worked in procurement.

They were attracted to the ethos of Home Instead after seeing first-hand how high quality care can make a real difference to the lives of ageing loved ones. The couple get huge satisfaction from seeing older people being able to live safely and happily in their own homes for longer, as a result of the care the organisation provides.

Phil & Amy are driven by the desire to be recognised as the number 1 care provider for older people in the area as well as providing rewarding employment opportunities in the local community; where both Phil and Amy have lived all of their lives.

Outside of work they are busy with baby Jack, they enjoy eating out and going to the gym whenever they get a chance (& have the energy!).

Our CAREGivers

Here are a dozen or so of our 70+ strong CAREGiver team.  We are very proud of our wonderful team of dedicated, passionate CAREGivers that we have at Home Instead Senior Care, Peterborough, Oundle and The Deepings.

Age is no barrier to becoming a CAREGiver & we actively recruit bright, cheerful people who can hold a conversation & reminisce about the good old days!

Our CAREGivers work hard to ensure that our clients receive the best possible care and go the extra mile at those times when it really makes a difference.
