Our CAREGivers at Home Instead Senior Care Rugby
We have a fantastic team of committed, professional, reliable and compassionate CAREGivers.
Many of our team draw on their own past personal experiences to encourage, assist, and stimulate our clients over a wide range of daily activities that help improve their quality of life and help them maintain as much independence as possible.
Our amazing CAREGivers are committed to providing a reliable, compassionate and friendly care service that makes a real difference to our clients' lives. Their thoughtfulness and dedication are inspirational. They work tirelessly helping our clients retain their dignity whilst remaining independent their own homes.
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. The quality of our CAREGiver's work remains paramount; they continue to provide support, stimulation and personal care to our clients with absolute dedication and commitment.
In short they are our most valuable assets.

Jane Hughes - Assistant Care Manager
I’ve been working in the care sector for 4 years and joined Home Instead in August 2018 as a CAREGiver. I joined the office team shortly after as the Training Coordinator and in August 2019 I was promoted to Assistant Care Manager.
I have over 20 years of personal experience with both my parents requiring different levels of care and support. My Dad suffered a severe head injury when I was 13 and I was fascinated by watching his recovery over the following years. My Mum was then diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 18 and it progressed rapidly. I quickly decided my passion was to make a difference to people requiring care at home and have never regretted it.
While my children were small I attended university and left with a Level 5 Diploma in Health Care.
I live in Rugby with my husband and two teenage children who keep me very busy outside of work!
I love spending time with my family and socialising with friends.
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 52 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 Office. It is a job that i thoroughly enjoy and i have no regrets in my choice.
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.
Jo-Ann Chambers - Scheduler
My main duties are making sure all the client calls are allocated to the right CAREGiver, adding new client calls and templating them, holiday management and adhoc invoices for the live in clients.
Adding or changing CAREGivers availability on the system, and making sure everyone is happy with their work load.
I really love my job and the people I work with. No two days are the same!
I have lived in Lutterworth all my life and have two children. A son that is away at Sheffield University and a Daughter who is studying A-Levels, so my spare time has become very spare.
