 Ginette Meade Owner of Home Instead Ruislip and Harrow, said: “I believe that providing the best care and companionship to our clients is paramount and recruiting the right people is just as important, this obviously shows in our latest results. It’s good to know that we are getting it right and that the people we employ go the extra mile each and every day caring for their clients. They are recruited especially for their caring and empathetic nature.”

The survey results demonstrate just how important this is, as 100% of clients agreed that their CAREGiver is matched to their needs and 90% feel their CAREGiver takes an interest in them as a person. We believe relationship-led homecare has to have these core principles at its heart.

The results show that CAREGivers feel valued, respected and part of the bespoke Home Instead ethos: 91%understood why Home Instead is different from other care companies, 95% say they are given enough time to deliver desired levels of care to clients, 91% would recommend Home Instead to a friend or family member as a place to work, 95% would recommend its services to friend and 95% say their job gives them the opportunity to learn and develop new skills.

Ginette added: “The results endorse the difference Home Instead is making to the lives of clients and CAREGivers in Harrow & Hillingdon areas every day.  Together we are changing the face of homecare.”
