They arrive with a smile and friendly welcome for clients and their families. Many of our CAREGivers entered the care sector because they want to make a difference to lives of the elderly, some of them having cared for loved ones of their own. Every day they provide comfort, companionship, practical help and personal care.

In short they are our most valuable assets.
Sarah Slater - Director
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am the Managing Director of Home Instead Senior Care Rugby.
Throughout my working life I have held various positions in different sectors. My first job was in a residential home when I left school and I went on to join the British Army as a medic.
I spent several years in retail management and then took some time off with my children and ventured into child care and fostering. I mainly cared for children with disabilities and challenging behaviour.
In Christmas 2012 I stumbled across Home Instead and worked for the office in Market Harborough as a Client coordinator. I vowed never to take a job in care again as my earlier experience was not very nice. However Home Instead have proved that care can be high quality.
The personalised care that we offer ensures we make a genuine difference to our service users and their families and for the first time ever I enjoyed going to work.
In November 2013 my mother at only 50 years old lost her battle with cancer. This made me look at my life again and I decided I wanted to really make a difference and took the leap to buy my own Home instead.
In my spare time I like to spend time with my family doing active things like climbing, canyoning, and paint balling. I enjoy socialising with friends, going out for meals and enjoy a glass of red wine.
Karen Cox - Quality & Compliance
Karen joined Home Instead Senior Care in February 2015 as a CAREGiver. After caring for her Nan, Karen decided that care was something she wanted to try. She has been a fantastic CAREGiver working with several clients until recently applying for the position of Recruitment and Retention Coordinator, since then Karen has decided to move to the post of Compliance and quality,
Karen will be responsible for helping all areas of the team maintaining records and ensuring we are compliant for inspections and audits, she also helps the new CAREGivers through the first 12 weeks of their employment and the Care Certificate.
Karen has qualifications and experience in Care, Health and Beauty and Admin. Karen has completed her NVQ level 3 in Health and Social Care.
Karen likes to spend time with her partner, daughter and socialising with friends. She enjoys going to the cinema, local gym, and looks forward to her holidays abroad each year.
We have been using this service for my mother for over a year now and I have nothing but praise for it. The carers are lovely with Mum and change is kept to a minimum. If there are any concerns I am always notified. I am the nearest family member to Mum and am about an hour away so this service has made my life much less stressful personally. I also think Mum is happier seeing someone every day.Carol S (Daughter)
