Meet Bryn & Jill Evans, Home Instead Sheffield & Barnsley's Franchise Owners...

“We first opened our offices in July 2006, at the time we had only 2 employees.  Today we employ over 170 full and part-time employees. Our aim when we began was to try and make a difference to the quality of care provided to all the individuals we care for. We only employ specially chosen individuals to ensure only the best quality of care is delivered. We truly feel that dignity and independence can be one of the most important things to any person who wishes to remain in their own home.  Since we started the business we have provided quality care for over 1000 individuals and when we receive letters of thanks there really is no better feeling.”

Head of People - Alison

Meet Alison, Home Instead Sheffield & Barnsley's Head of People...

"I joined Home Instead in 2015 having already worked with Jill & Bryn on various projects in my previous role.  Having worked 20 years in the legal sector I felt a change in direction and a new challenge was just what I needed.  After meeting the rest of the amazing team and learning more about the great work Home Instead do in improving the lives of the elderly, vulnerable and socially isolated in our area, I was sold! Finding the right caregivers to help our clients who have both the heart and patience to care is something I am passionate about.  When recruiting Care Professionals I always think of my own Grandmother and the type of person I would have wanted to help her in her later years. It is also very important that as a team we support our caregivers in the fantastic work they do, not only with regular supervision meetings and training but by ensuring that our door is always open for a cup of tea with a big smile and a listening ear."
