Home Instead Delighted to Receive the Queen’s Award for Innovation!

Home care that is good enough for the Queen!

As the UK’s No 1 private homecare provider and No 1 homecare franchisor, our commitment to elevating and innovating elder care standards has underlined our business journey at every step over the last decade.

Home Instead UK, of which we form the local element here in Sheffield, has received the UK’s highest accolade for business success - the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2016 in the field of innovation.

The award from Her Majesty The Queen recognises our brand’s contribution to society, which helps thousands of elderly people continue to live in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes, happily and healthily for as long as possible.

Home Instead’s award for Innovation has been made in recognition of our unique model of companionship-based home care.

Our companionship services include:

Assist with appointments

Help with reading

Participate in hobbies & crafts

Monitor diet & eating

The award organisers clearly recognise the relevance of our care model in today’s society and the benefits of clients receiving care visits of a minimum one hour in duration, delivered by familiar CAREGivers who are hand-picked to work with our clients based on shared interests.

We are proud to deliver Home Instead service locally across Sheffield.  Home Instead was launched in the UK in 2005 and was brought to Sheffield in 2006.  Since then the brand has grown to a national network of 175 offices, caring for 8,000 clients, providing five million hours of care each year.

We are proud that the company has won many awards, as have many of our CAREGivers, in recognition of the quality of care we provide.  It is our declared mission to change the face of ageing and this award is proof that we are well on our way to achieving this aim.

The recognition this award brings is fantastic for us but it is also a good news story for the home care sector as a whole, bringing greater awareness of a new kind of home care, fit for the 21st century.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like more information on our services, please call 0114 246 9666 for your free care consultation.
